VASILIS BARKAS 6: Almost nothing to do apart from deal with a couple of crosses, and no chance with McGregor’s own goal.

JEREMIE FRIMPONG 6: Bombed forward but often lacked end product, much to the frustration of his teammates.

KRISTOFFER AJER 7: A towering presence at the back, dominating the Rangers forwards for the majority of the game.

NIR BITTON 4: Bizarre shot from his own half had his manager scratching his head, and even more ridiculous decision to haul down Morelos on the hour saw him dismissed to hand initiative to Rangers. Had played well in between, too, but red card so costly.

DIEGO LAXALT 6: Like Frimpong, full-back got forward well, but struggled to get crosses in. Brilliant tackle to deny Morelos at the other end.

ISMAILA SORO 7: Spate of early fouls and a little rash to pick up a booking, but more than played his part in suffocating the usual fluency of the Rangers midfield.

RYAN CHRISTIE 6: Was lively throughout, but didn’t quite have his shooting boots on as he saw a couple of more than presentable opportunities fly high and wide.

CALLUM MCGREGOR 7: Captain was outstanding for the most part and so unlucky to see the ball deflect off his arm and into the net for Rangers’ opener.

DAVID TURNBULL 7: Was all over Davis when Rangers had the ball and showed his quality when Celtic did. Sacrificed when Bitton was dismissed.

ODSONNE EDOUARD 7: Prepared to work to halt Rangers full-backs, but also showed brilliant control and wonderful strength, always giving his teammates an option up top.

LEIGH GRIFFITHS 7: Denied by an unbelievable McGregor tip onto the post from a left-foot curler and was a constant threat until sacrificed when down to 10 men.


SHANE DUFFY 2: On after Bitton’s red card and picked up a quick yellow for bad challenge on Kent. All over the place.

MOI ELYOUNOUSSI 4: Charged with providing attacking threat after Bitton went off and went so close with long-range effort.

SCOTT BROWN 3: Captain couldn’t turn the tide.

HATEM ELHAMED 3: Not really involved.

TOM ROGIC 3: Last throw of the dice but couldn’t come up with magic moment.
