"Dominated" - 8, "Ineffective" 6 - Player ratings v Dundee


Another stroll of a 90 minutes with a Rangers in sumptuous form, and even though the foot came off the second half gas again, Steven Gerrard’s side are hitting glorious symbiosis at exactly the right time.

Ibrox Noise has some ratings for you to disagree with:

McGregor:


We can barely remember a save he made – a punch or two, the odd clearance, but another quiet day for the number one. 6

Tavernier:

Good overlapping runs again as he always does, hardly called in at the back again. Solid and good with his link up as usual too. 7

Worrall:

Didn’t have a great deal to do again except pass out of defence – quiet night again for the on loan man. 6

Goldson:

Some misplaced passes forward but pretty much strolled it. Hardly pushed of course but was polished in what he did. 7

Barisic:

Barely noticeable – a good tackle near the end, but a lack of good overlapping runs or crosses and if there’s an understanding with Kent, we’re not seeing it. 5

Kamara:

A very neat display from the new boy – not physically rough but more subtle with his defensive work and neat use of the ball. 7

Jack:

Another great display from the birthday boy, Jack dominated midfield and is becoming Rangers’ Mr Consistent. Good work in both advanced and defence and we can say he was one of the men of the match. 8

Arfield:

Superb first half till succumbing from injury, this lad really is what makes Rangers tick. Maybe the most underrated player in the squad, his experience and quality are invaluable. 8

Kent:
Ineffective night from Kent – tried and ran and passed but most of it missed its mark and he didn’t seem to have much connection with Barisic at all. 6

Candeias:

Another hard-working enterprising display from the Portuguese who is probably in the best form he’s been since he arrived, including his POTY season – quality touches, a return to his deadly crossing, he’s in the zone right now. 8

Morelos:

Annoyed Dundee so much O’Dea wanted to deck him, the Colombian was a total pest again and for a player who wants to leave, he sure leaves everything on the pitch. Took his goal well, won loads of fouls and we’re happy to see him playing like this. Just wish he didn’t keep on saying he wants to leave! 8

Subs:

Davis:


We’ll hand this one to Robrob57.

Defoe:


Great goal, some good linking up with Morelos, and he’ll be happy with what he’s giving even if it’s all as sub. 7

Steven Gerrard:

Did the right thing sticking with the team that’s working so well right now. It might not include everyone’s ‘fan favourites’ but the system, the team and the tactics are right on the money and while it took a long time for Stevie to find his best plan, it seems he’s done it. It’s really gelling right now. 9
