Rangers are once again the cream of the crop after securing the bulk of November’s team of the month, according to whoscored.com.

The statistics analysis site provided its ratings system for last month, and Steven Gerrard’s men made up 8 of the 11 starting players, giving some idea of how impressive Rangers have been lately.

Celtic managed just one player in the whole side.

McGregor, Tavernier, Goldson, Roofe, Aribo, Arfield, Kent and Defoe were Rangers’ entrants in this rating system, which bases a score out of 10 as an amalgamation of a tonne of different stats, data-based, to give a final verdict.

And it’s beyond clear that Rangers are absolutely running away with it.

Effectively, Rangers were the entire XI for November, with just Livi’s Ciaron Brown, Celtic’s Diego Laxalt, and Killie’s Kabamba managing to avoid it being absolute domination.

The thing is, this isn’t even opinion based, and we know how unreliable those can be – this is objective data-based appraisal, and therefore not only are opinions confirming Rangers are the best, but the clinical data backs it up.

Incidentally, the best-rated played of the month was James Tavernier, with a mind-boggling 9.1/10

Astonishing numbers.
