I’m not sure what the cut off is for Google’s daily trend data.  Today’s high with 20,000+ (far fewer than typical weekday highs, how much time do people spend randomly Googling at work?) searches is Rangers…

However, given that Rangers lost the Scottish FA cup final today and that Hibs won it for the first time in over 100 years, it seems likely that searches for Hibernian football club may eclipse those for Rangers as the day progresses!

Let’s not forget that today is one of two cup finals, with the English FA Cup final also taking place at Wembley.  With a later (17.30) kick-off, one may reasonably expect that searches for the two teams involved in this encounter (Manchester United and Crystal Palace) may reak their peak later in the day.

OK, so another quick look at the Google trends page reveals a statement that it was updated “about an hour ago”.  Mental note to check again in about an hour.
