We thought long and hard about ratings for this one, after all, did they actually matter?
But yes, a lot of you like our ratings, and a lot of you absolutely hate them, so let’s honour you all with tonight’s scores for an absolutely atrocious performance by Rangers v Dundee.
Had little to do, wasn’t properly tested, but then he rarely has been – it’s either on target and a goal, or it misses. He’s an empty shirt of a goalie and this should have been McCrorie’s night to be a virtual bystander. 3
He was absolutely non-existent. We barely recall a single cross from him, we’re sure we’ve just forgotten them. Couldn’t see any of his usual runs, he looked like he wasn’t in the mood, and that he may well be carrying something. Not really captain material tonight. 4
Decided to make a massive run out of defence, and overran it, just about nicking it away from the Dundee man. Aside this he wasn’t really overly tested and looked a bit off the pace. 4
Some lazy passing from King, worryingly already knows he’s suddenly very important and can get away with errors. Didn’t shine and this is the kind of match which shows when a talent is the real deal, not a big pressure night in Holland when the match is already dead. 4
The Turk took his chance, he really did. Lots of running, lots of defending, and he was much more willing to dribble at opponents. True, it was only Dundee but it’s an upgrade from his last opponent and he’s starting, at last, to look the part. He’s ready. 7
Once again he slowed everything down in midfield – yes, he was right place right time for the match-winning goal, but once again everything else about his performance screamed of getting in the way of Lundstram. This guy cannot play alongside the Scouser, but hey, we’re broken records saying that. Ridiculously given MOTM. 4
Did everything he could to cope with Davis in the way, but in the end, he struggled as always alongside the NI star. We’re not digging at Davo, he just cannot compliment Lunny and it’s on Gio for wrecking both of them. 4
Another bright spark here, Wright took his chance, again, against modest opposition, as well as anyone. We’ve been very hard on Wrighty, and he is short of the top-level a club like Rangers needs, but in the here and now he’s a far better option than Kent. 7
Worked hard out there, and was another borderline pass mark – couldn’t make too much stick but at least he was making the runs and trying things. Points for effort and trying to defy the general malaise at Ibrox. 6
Those punters who decided the Zambian was a half decent player with that show v St Mirren (Or was it Hearts), and reckoned he was good enough after well over a year of being rubbish were shown to have been a spot misguided and the forward was back in normal territory, running into blind alleys and looking hopeless. 3
Oh this was sad. Morelos reduced to this. Yes his assist for Sakala the other week was good, but that’s about all he’s done of note since he regained fitness. Miles off it, and shook his head in disgust as he was subbed. Probably remembered his one on one that he utterly blew. Kind of chance Colak would bury. 2
Subs made no difference aside Roofe who did look quite bright in his defence.
Gio just got this team completely wrong, but wilfully. That’s right – he knows McLaughlin stinks, that Lunny and Davo cannot play together, that King and Sands have NEVER played together, but he just threw that mess right out there and crossed his fingers. What a rotten night. Didn’t feel like a win at all from him. 3
