A bad day at the office for Rangers, and Ibrox Noise picks up our ratings for you on an afternoon to forget.
It wasn’t even a contest, by a distance our best player and no team has forced more saves out of him all season. He was excellent, but he shouldn’t have needed to be. He will be fuming at the equaliser. 9
Desperately poor from Tavernier whose absolutely ridiculous high before Xmas has faded and he’s looking at the moment very much like the Tavernier who got so many pelters in the past. Defensively all over the place, and isn’t offering very much in an attacking sense these days any more. Hopefully he’ll get it back but right now he’s struggling. 5
Actually not one of his better ones – at one point he slammed a stupid pass over to Helander which nearly cost a goal. Looked shaky under pressure. 6
Won’t thank Goldson for ‘that’ pass but did handle it poorly as well. Was caught a couple of times and struggled to contain his man. 6
Technically nearly bailed us out with another of his fine crosses, but otherwise didn’t really get into this one. As we said in our last appraisal, both FBs are struggling these days, and this was another difficult afternoon for the Croat. 6
Sketchy. He gave the ball away with some loose possession and frankly didn’t really look that up for it today. 6
Will get pelters but he’s just not been a good signing yet. Was unable to influence this match and didn’t do a lot defensively either. 5
Honestly, the result made his display look worse than it was – actually got some good dribbles going, and tried to make things happen in that first half. But did fade as it went on. 7
This boy is dearly struggling but isn’t being rested like he needs to be. His work rate is still there but the confidence isn’t – and we’re fed up with seeing his head in his hands after another shot missed on his right foot. 6
As always, taken off despite a fairly energetic display, Hagi was willing to try to work the goalie from outside the box and just gets on with it. He was ok. 6
Some lovely touches, and excellent vision from the Swiss but got no service at all and had nothing to gobble on. 7
Added a touch of spine that Rangers needed, but his defensive impact was non-existent. Did add more in an offensive sense. 6
This is where it changed. Hamilton, from being camped in our box, were now camped in their own as Davo came on and ran the show. His impact allowed us to play more like we can. 8
Looked bright, but lacked belief as he thundered into the area and twice refused to shoot when the chance was there. 6
Steven Gerrard got the selection wrong again – just in the past few matches there are errors creeping in from the boss who might just be believing the hype right now. We love him, but selecting Zungu was not a good idea and continuing with Kent wasn’t either. Like the squad as a whole right now, it’s far from flawless from the manager. 5
We are rating today on its own terms, coupled with recent weeks. It doesn’t change the big picture – Rangers have been incredible this season, and no one will be happier than us when we lift 55, but it would be a lie and a disservice to you if we claimed today was an isolated incident over the past few weeks. We won’t insult your intelligence.
All we want now is 55 brought home.
