Rangers secured a thumping 3-1 win over Heart of Midlothian at the Ibrox Stadium earlier today. The Gers produced a stirring performance to outclass the league leaders and Steven Gerrard must be a thoroughly satisfied man at this stroke of the hour.
Here are our Rangers player ratings following their win over Craig Levein’s entourage.
Allan McGregor 8/10
The veteran custodian made two stupendous stops to deny Steven Naismith and Uche Ikpeazu from finding the back of the net early on. Besides, he also made a crucial save from Arnaud Djoum in the closing stages of the game.
James Tavernier 8/10
The skipper flourished down the right and jotted some shrewd crosses into the box. It was a commendable outing for him.
Connor Goldson 7/10
Goldson dealt with Ikpeazu with a lot of resilience and there is no denying that the manner in which he discharged his defensive duties was notable.
Joe Worrall 6/10
On many occasions, Worrall struggled against Ikpeazu and he lacked confidence when the ball was at his feet.
