GORDON: One of only two Celtic players to emerge with passmarks. Put in a shift as he kept the scoreline at bay with a string of saves in both halves. Blocked one Daniel Candeias effort with his legs and then pulled off another one handed save to deny Connor Goldson but left with little chance as Ryan Kent opened the scoring shortly afterwards. Rescued Celtic at start of second period after Boyata left him ridiculously exposed. (7)

LUSTIG: Left on his backside in the build up to the opening goal by Kent. Booked on the cusp of the half-time whistle for a foul on Candeias. Injury meant he went off at the break. (5)

BENKOVIC: Afternoon was curtailed as he had to go off with what looked like a calf injury. Pulled up after playing a pass and although he tried to force his way through it, he was forced out of the fray which restricted the options for Rodgers to change things around. (5)

BOYATA: Caused unnecessary anxiety at times with attempts to play the ball out from the back and utterly insipid in the challenge. Caused all sorts of problems for himself and his team-mates by poor distribution and deciosn making. (4)

MCGREGOR: Up with Gordon in that he could hold his head up after putting in a shift, despite being deployed at left-back. Unlucky not to have found a leveller when he was borderline offside but looked like Celtic's most dangerous player and the one who put his shoulder to the wheel. (7)

FORREST: First real chance of the game when he combined with Johnston to force a save from McGregor but anonymous for much of the game. (5)

NTCHAM: Passenger. Too ponderous and too easily brushed off. Nowhere near the level required and looked off the pace throughout. Had one effort on goal that was blocked as Celtic tried to force a late leveller but as poor a game as he has played for Celtic. (4)

BROWN: Relieved to see the ball clip his own crossbar and come back out from a Halliday corner in the opening half but that moment encapsulated his performance.. Jack’s effort deflected off him on way into net for the only goal of the game but a frustrating afternoon for the midfielder who was guilty of wasting possession repeatedly. (5)

CHRISTIE: Skewed one effort wide of the post in the opening stages after Lustig picked him out just at the edge of the box and came close to finding a leveller at the start of the second period. Another who grafted throughout but ran into too many bodies. (6)

SINCLAIR: Didn't show up. Posted missing for much of the game and toiled to make any positive contribution. (4)

JOHNSTON: Handed a start with Odsonne Edouard unfit to start the game but isolated for much of his time on the park with Rangers penning Celtic into their own half. As expected, replaced by Edouard for the final half hour

AJER: Took over from Benkovic in the final minutes of the opening half and put in an industrious shift at the back. (6)

RALSTON: On for Lustig at the break and another who was kept busy with Rangers' repeated forward forays. (6)

EDOUARD: On just before the hour mark as he took over from Johnston but little chance to impose himself. (5)
