Hearts v Hibs: The Last New Year Derby


OK, so Hibs and Hearts have met close to the New Year recently. But this was the last of the New Year's Day fixtures.

A 2-2 all draw on the first day of 1998 that saved Jim Duffy's job long enough for him to complete his mission to relegate Hibs.

The neutral would probably take a four goal thriller today. The similarities with current plights might not be lost on Hibs fans.
