Steven Gerrard saw his side run out 3-0 winners at Easter Road with a couple of early goals laying the foundations.

Ryan Kent put them ahead in the 4th minute before Joe Aribo doubled the advantage by the 8th minute.

Jermaine Defoe sealed victory when he fired in a third goal after the break and Hibernian’s woes were compounded with the sending-off of Ryan Porteous seeing them finish the game with 10 men.
