Rangers boss Philippe Clement picked out six players for praise after his side's League Cup semi-final victory against Hearts.

The Ibrox side ran out comfortable winners against Steven Naismith's men at the national stadium thanks to a double from James Tavernier and strike from Scott Wright.

And Clement was keen to talk up several positives from the performance. Speaking to BBC Sportsound, he said: "Tav played a good game, but a lot of players played a good game. It is also about the hard work of the team that the opponent gets tired in the second half.

"Scott did a good job, and I am happy Tom Lawrence came in, Cyriel [Dessers] got minutes, Danilo played a good game, Sam Lammers played a good game, and it is good we can change players because we have to do that with playing every three days.

"It is important to have a bigger squad ready. I am really happy with the performance because I know how hard it is to play against a team like Hearts with their qualities, structure and resilience so we had a really important evening with our football to create chances and we did not give away too much.

"That is why it is a pity to give away a penalty but that is a small point after the game. I am very happy as I am only here two weeks, but I see everybody here, not just the players but everyone at the club, step into the story and work hard to do the right things and you can see how that leads to good results."
