Allan McGregor – 6

The goalkeeper denied Joe Newell with his right leg and then dealt with a soft long-range attempt from Martin Boyle in the first-half. He felt, along with his team mates, that he had been fouled by Steven Whittaker as he jumped for the ball before Paul Hanlon put the visitors ahead. But referee Bobby Madden disagreed and the goal stood.

James Tavernier – 7

Made his first start of the year after recovering from the minor procedure he underwent on his appendix last month. Supplied Alfredo Morelos in the Hibernian penalty box in the third minute. Then set up the equaliser with a free-kick just before half-time. His side benefitted greatly from his presence in the starting line-up once again.

George Edmundson – 7

Took over from Nikola Katic at centre half after the young Croatian’s shaky display against Aberdeen. Did his cause no harm at all with a confident showing and his first goal for Rangers. He was booked for a rash challenge on Steven Whittaker in the first-half. The free-kick he gifted the visitors led to the opening goal. Atoned by netting the equaliser.

Connor Goldson – 7

The Rangers defender is enjoying a good spell of form even if the same cannot be said of many of those in front of him. The former Brighton man marshalled his backline well and probably helped Edmundson to make such a positive impression.

Ianis Hagi – 8

The Romanian playmaker started his first game less than a week after arriving from Genk on loan as Glen Kamara dropped to the bench. He looked comfortable on the ball and passed well. Volleyed just wide early in the second-half after getting on the end of a Borna Barisic cross inside the Hibernian box. Netted from an acute angle to ensure his team collected all three points. A deserved Man of the Match winner.

Steven Davis – 5

The Northern Ireland internationalist’s showings since the winter shutdown haven’t been as good as they were during the first half of the 2019/20 campaign and this was no exception. The midfielder wasn’t poor as such. But his manager will be looking for such an experienced player to lead by example and he just isn’t doing that just now.

Ryan Kent – 4

The winger can’t be faulted for effort at the moment. He puts in a powerful shift whenever he takes to the field. But he is struggling to provide the spark that his manager is desperately searchng for in the final third. He was virtually anonymous in the second-half and was lucky to remain on the pitch as long as he did. Was replaced by Jordan Jones in the 81st minute.

Jo Aribo – 6

Dropped into a deeper position than usual in the absence of Glen Kamara to accommodate Hagi. But he still caused the Hibernian defence concern with his forward runs. Moved forward in the second-half and had an attempt on goal blocked by Paul McGinn and hooked a shot over. Made way for Greg Stewart in the 70th minute.

Alfredo Morelos – 7

The Colombian striker had a poor shot palmed wide by Ofir Marciano in just the third minute. He then had another attempt saved by the Hibs keeper four minutes before half-time. But he did well to win a free-kick wide on the right that led to the opening goal. Was also unlucky not to make it 3-1 in injry-time. He looked like a man who had been suspended for three games at the weekend. No goals, but this was a lot more like it.

Borna Barisic – 6

The left back took a blow to his face in the first-half when Christian Doidge made a reckless challenge, which he was immediately booked for, but carried on. The Croatian was always eager to hare upfield and his deliveries into the opposition box were of the usual high standard.

Scott Arfield – 5

Partnered Steven Davis in central midfield in a 4-2-3-1 formation. But he was far quieter than he has been of late. Shot wide just before half-time when his team was trailing 1-0 and then fired well over the crossbar in the second-half. The Canadian internationalist has shown on numerous occasions he has an eye for goal. But he wasn't his usual self.


Greg Stewart – 2

Gave away a free-kick shortly after taking to the field. Worked hard thereafter.

Jordan Jones – 2

Was unable to carve out an opening during his brief time on the park

Glen Kamara – 2

Took over from match winner Hagi. Helped his side see out the win.
