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

Absolutely bonkers. I told you before the game we'd go for it and we were 3-0 up.

Neil Lennon was sent off for celebrating Hibernian's last-gap equaliser in a chaotic final day 10-goal thriller against Rangers on the pitch at Easter Road.

The Bhoys will meet Aberdeen at Celtic Park and Rangers will need them to secure at least a draw, should they have any chance of ending up as runners up and qualifying for a Europa League spot next season.

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. Scott Allan doubled their lead after some excellent play before Jamie Maclaren got his first of the day to put the game well in the home sides' favour.

The Englishman is well loved by the club's supporters but his class doesn't impress many others who perhaps don't watch him on a regular basis.

However, Rangers pulled two back through James Tavernier and Jordan Rossiter within three minutes, and drew level five minutes before half time through a fine free kick from Bruno Alves.

However, another Maclaren goal sent Gers' nerves jangling and with Jimmy Nicholl's men down to 10 after seeing Holt sent-off late on, Hibs' on-loan Darmstadt frontman prodded home at the death to the relief of the Hibs faithful. The points were far from safe as Maclaren hit twice more and the spoils were shared.

An absolutely insane match ensued in the capital and the Gers were somehow held to a stunning 5-5 draw with Neil Lennon's men - but Dallas was at the heart of several key decisions that seemed to go against the Light Blues.
