Neil Lennon taunts Rangers fans after bonkers 5-5 draw

Hibs led 3-0, trailed 5-3 and eventually grabbed an injury time equaliser to finish it 5-5 against 10-man Rangers.

However, two goals from Jamie Maclaren to complete his hat-trick, including one in the 93rd minute, made the scores 5-5 on a thrilling last day in Edinburgh.

In the second-half, Dallas somehow missed a deliberate-looking handball inside the penalty area from Steven Whittaker, with Rangers supporters behind the goal absolutely irate.

Aberdeen's win at Celtic meant Rangers could not have finished higher than third anyway, but Lennon seemed keen to add to any frustrations among the away fans with some over-zealous celebrations just before the final whistle.

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. James Tavernier and Jordan Rossiter netted in quick succession before substitute Bruno Alves tied things up shortly before half-time.

The sides went in level at the break before Jason Holt stuck the visitors ahead.

Maclaren got a goal back 70 minutes in and, after Holt earned a second yellow card a quarter of an hour later, Hibs' Australia global fired home in injury time to secure a point. The points were far from safe as Maclaren hit twice more and the spoils were shared.

Lennon was back in the Hibs dug-out after his midweek threat to quit - but he didn't stay there as he celebrated the draw by running onto the pitch with his arms outstretched, earning himself a red card.
