Hibernian – January can bring back the sunshine on Leith.

Saturdays defeat against city rivals Hearts emphasised all that has been wrong with the Leith club and in order to make the sun shine once more, they need to have a productive January in the transfer market.

The Love Hate Relationship That Rangers Are Missing

Three lacklustre performances from Steven Gerrard’s Rangers in a row have highlighted the side’s lack of a creative spark in the middle of the park.
