Neil Lennon sent off after staging one-man pitch invasion against Rangers

It was Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes' first win over Brendan Rodgers' side in 10 games and was not the end to the league season the Northern Irishman wanted, with a Scottish Cup final against Motherwell at Hampden Park to come next Saturday as they look to clinch an unprecedented successive domestic treble.

It was simply a insane game at Easter Road which began when Florian Kamberi put them ahead from the penalty spot just ten minutes in.

Hibs, knowing a 6-0 win would see them overtake Rangers in third, started with a bang and were leading 3-0 after 22 minutes through a Florian Kamberi penalty, Scott Allan and Jamie Maclaren.

Hibernian needed a miracle to sneak into the top three. James Tavernier and Jordan Rossiter netted in quick succession before substitute Bruno Alves tied things up shortly before half-time.

Neil Lennon has always liked to celebrate a goal against Rangers.

Hibs remarkably went 3-0 up before throwing it away and going down 5-3 with time running out.

Rangers fans are absolutely livid with referee Andrew Dallas after today's match at Hibs - with some supporters even calling for the whistler to be banned from officiating.

Considine's contribution also guaranteed the Dons the runners-up spot for the fourth year in a row and quashed Rangers' hopes of a second-place finish to an otherwise dispiriting season.

Steven Gerrard will have a job on his hands to fix a Rangers side that successfully managed to turn a three-goal deficit into a two-goal lead and subsequently blew that lead.
