Rangers Player Ratings: who were the four men 9 and above v Hearts?


As has become traditional under the Steven Gerrard era, here are your post-Hearts player ratings courtesy of your friends at Ibrox Noise.

Let the angry disagreements commence!

Allan McGregor:


His two big saves early on helped define this match. They gave the team the confidence to express themselves, and while he will be devastated by the loss of a clean sheet, it was a pretty imperious display from the big man. 8

James Tavernier:

Defending is staying steady, having improved noticeably v Rapid, Rangers’ captain is definitely in good form right now and while some of his crossing is a little inconsistent, his width on the right is becoming indispensable and he nabbed himself another assist. No wonder Wigan want him back. 8

Connor Goldson:

Another smooth display from the big guy, although was partially at fault for Hearts’ consolation. Nevertheless, had most things under control and led the backline well. 8

Joe Worrall:

Definitely not as convincing as he was Vienna, this was a slow start from the Forest loanee and he was being destroyed early on for pure power by Ikpeazu. Massively beaten aerially for the consolation by Dunne. Times like this we miss Katic. 6

Jon Flanagan:

Another excellent showing from this guy – nothing was going past him and looked stable, robust, and a late smashing tackle summed him up. Really good. 8

Lassana Coulibaly:


Quietish match from the Malian but didn’t do much wrong. Wasn’t maybe as heavily involved the way he can be, but was solid. 7

Scott Arfield:


Slightly shaky early on but composed himself and while not a stunning display individually, he managed to help rally the men around him and worked doggedly off the ball. His goal was just reward for his grit. 7

Ovie Ejaria:


A decent enough outing from Ejaria – his trademark smooth composure on the ball and technical prowess. A lot flowed through him and he did an especially good job of feeding the wings. 7

Ryan Kent:

While his second half was not as scintillating as the first, he’d already done the damage. The second defence in a row to wave a white flag at Kent, but this time he was even better. Flawless. 10

Daniel Candeias:

Ever since we were critical of him, Danny has seriously upped his game. Very good v Vienna and absolutely torrential yesterday, only Kent had a better match than Candy. A fine display and he looks back to his best. 9

Alfredo Morelos:


He’s free-scoring and hitting some excellent form now, and that goal was one of the best we’ve seen at Ibrox in years. Working hard as usual, causing his trademark mischief, and got a wonderful assist with one of his most unselfish moments as a Ranger. That makes us happy. 9

Steven Gerrard:


We can’t understand the Croatia Crew thing, but it doesn’t matter – Gerrard’s Rangers are delivering, his tactics are working, and this was another match in which he barely got a thing wrong. Ok, the tempo in the second half dropped a bit but the work had been done. He’ll be very happy with how this one worked out. 9

What did you make of all these folks?
