Rangers once again found the depth of the Champions League way beyond the capabilities of their leaky armbands, and were humbled in every way bar score at Anfield.
Ibrox Noise brings you our ratings on yet another humiliation at this level.
One of the few who can walk away with their head high, his performance tonight wasn’t exactly vintage, he can pull off those saves in his sleep, but with McLaughlin in goal Rangers would have conceded close to 10. Be more worried that you were praising McGregor for bailing us out than angry that he had to. 7
Deeply, woefully, and shockingly short at this level, Tavernier got his career break by moving to Scotland and that and the UEL are his level, the Champions League is another beast entirely and he’s not up to it. Left King et al exposed for the penalty. 3
Honestly, had a fair few blocks and clearances, and this was a lot better than his weak showing in matchday one. Did well enough. 6
Another one with an honourable performance, his naivete cost the penalty but he should never have been exposed like that. Despite the error we give him 6 too.
A surprisingly strong night from Davies, despite not being terribly visible, he made a lot of defensive contributions and helped stop things being a lot worse. 6
He was soft, and didn’t do a lot. Didn’t do much wrong, but looked a bit fearful most of the evening. Was the least effective defender aside his opposite flank. 5
Really struggled – was once again left to deal with Davis as his partner and once again it didn’t work. A tough night for him. 4
A literal career low from him – hardly touched the ball, and made little impact at all. This was once his level, it isn’t now. It’s passed him by. 3
Really wanted to impress but had absolutely nothing to work with, nothing to feed off. Equally his workrate seemed low and he looked like a rabbit in headlights. He did manage one or two dribbles and a bad cross but he didn’t shine. 4
This was probably the night where most fans wanted to package him in an SAE and return to sender. He was literally invisible. 0
Didn’t have a lot to work with, but what he did get he wasted. He didn’t look up for the fight at all, didn’t press, didn’t work like the Morelos we (used to) know. 3
Actually tidy and helped to shore midfield up a bit. 6
Bright, looked hungry and nearly scored a stunning goal. 7
Ironically the best he’s played in ages – cut out a lot of balls and used his passes well. 7
Showed more courage in his cameo than most of the team had. Tried with what he had. 6
Managed more in 10 minutes than Freddo had in 80. Nearly scored. Will be disgusted he didn’t start. 7
This was, quietly, by a distance, his worst night as Rangers manager (we say that too much now). He set up a mess of a formation, made a bunch of bad selection decisions, and while the score was modest, the players literally didn’t show up, didn’t understand the formation (who could blame them) and were left lost by him. He’s a completely **** manager in the Champions League, and isn’t learning a thing. -10
