Jon McLaughlin – 6

Didn’t have much to do but produced a couple of stops early in the first-half to deny St Mirren an equaliser.

James Tavernier – 6

Final delivery into the box not up to scratch, but looked a threat on the right flank.

Connor Goldson – 7

Towered above Obika and won every aerial dual. Looked comfortable playing alongside Balogun.

Leon Balogun – 8

Looks a real find. Composed and assured on the ball at the heart of the Rangers defence.

Borna Barisic – 6

Got forward well but final ball into the box was poor. Defended well for the little he had to.

Glenn Kamara – 6

Used in a defensive role so didn’t have as much of an impact as he would have liked. Not pressurised in the middle of the park.

Ryan Jack – 6

Didn’t put a foot wrong in midfield, but could have looked forward more instead of using easy sideway option.

Joe Aribo – 7

Influential in the final third and always finding space. Outstanding pass in the build-up for third goal.

Ianis Hagi – 6

A quiet game for his standards, but still looked a threat at the top end of the pitch.

Ryan Kent – 8

St Mirren couldn’t handle his tricky footwork. Looked a real danger every time he was on the ball.

Alfredo Morelos – 8

Hungry and much improved from Thursday’s trip to Germany. Linked up well with Kent, Hagi and Aribo and most importantly back on the scoresheet.


Cedric Itten – 3

Looked a presence when he came on and a different option up top for Steven Gerrard.

Steven Davis – 3

Got on the ball and looked forward as much as he could.

Scott Arfield – 4

Looked energetic after being introduced off the bench.

Brandon Barker – 4

Had a couple of bursts in the final third but nothing of real note.

Calvin Bassey – 3

Got forward a couple of times but couldn’t direct any crosses into Itten.

St Mirren

Jak Alnwick – 8

On the receiving end of a heavy defeat but it could have been a lot more. A fine showing on his return to Ibrox.

Marcus Fraser – 4

Had a tough shift with Ryan Kent running at him. Barisic on the outside also caused the former Ross County defender problems.

Joe Shaughnessy – 5

Struggled with the attacking threat of Rangers. Tried his best to shut down Morelos but the striker got the better of him.

Conor McCarthy – 3

Looked shaky at the back with a couple of miscued clearances. One of which found the back of the net for the opener.

Richard Tait – 4                                        

Struggled against Joe Aribo and James Tavernier. Was overloaded at times and found it hard to stop cross balls.

Cammy MacPherson – 3

Looked confident on the ball but poor from set pieces for Saints.

Sam Foley – 4

Tried to break up the play but went missing and wasn’t his usual driving force.

Nathan Sheron – 4

Debuts won’t get much harder than a match against Rangers at Ibrox. He will have better days for Saints.

Jamie McGrath – 6

Couple of nice touches in midfield and had a few attacking runs in the final third.

Ilkay Durmus – 5

Got on the ball but struggled to find a teammate at the top end of the pitch.

Jonathan Obika – 5

Tough game up front on his own against two towering centre backs – but put himself about.


Junior Morias - 2

Failed to make an impact in the dying stages of the Ibrox encounter.

Kyle McAllister – 2

Put in a defensive shift in the closing stages.

Ethan Erhahon – 1

On too late to make an impact.

Isak Thorvaldsson – 1

Game was gone as he entered the pitch.

Lewis Jamieson – 1

On with five minutes remaining – a rough gig.
