HIBS boss Neil Lennon insists a potential third visit to Ibrox could jeopardise his side’s bid for second place in the Premiership.

The Easter Road outfit, who play Hamilton Accies tonight, sit just four points behind second-placed Rangers and have a game in hand.

SPFL chiefs have a problem with the current top six all having played at Ibrox twice already this season.

But Graeme Murty’s men are due another two home games after the split and the Edinburgh side are likely to be one of the clubs forced to make a third trip to Govan.

Lennon, whoi has seen his team win twice at Ibrox in this campaign, said: “I’m assuming that because we’re the lowest-seeded team, we will be going there for the third time.

“If that does happen, it will be a major concern. It will be a major disadvantage.

“Not only for our chances of finishing second, but also from a financial point of view as we lose out on a sell-out home crowd, which I think we have earned the right to have.
“We will just have to cross that bridge when we come to it.”
