Marks out of 10 as Rangers defeat Kilmarnock to advance to the quarter-finals of the Betfred Cup.
Daniel Bachmann - 7
Despite losing three goals the young keeper still impressed with a number of smart saves.
Stephen O’Donnell - 6
Wasn’t as effective charging forward from deep as we’re used to seeing from the full-back.
Scott Boyd - 3
Had a torrid day against Morelos, including being turned far too easily for the second goal.
Kirk Broadfoot - 4
Had a strong opening 30 minutes, but after losing Morelos for the first goal he fell apart. Couldn’t deal with the striker’s movement.
Greg Taylor - 7
A lot of Rangers’ attacks came down this side, though he was often left two-on-one. In his individual battles he performed very well and started the move which led to Kilmarnock’s goal.
Chris Burke - 6
Worked hard down the right and had a hand in Killie’s goal shortly after half-time.
Alan Power - 6
In possession he was a little sloppy, though he was a disruptive force in the midfield area.
Gary Dicker - 5
Though he was better with the ball than his midfield partner, he struggled to keep tabs on Rangers’ central midfielders, particularly Scott Arfield.
Jordan Jones - 7
Was a threat in attack and made Kilmarnock’s goal. However, he often failed to get close enough to James Tavernier, who would have a hand in all three Rangers goals.
Eammon Brophy - 7
Intelligently picked up space around the final third, never shirked a battle and gave Connor Goldson more than a few things to worry about.
Kris Boyd - 5
Was nullified by Nikola Katic outside the penalty box and didn’t appear his usual predatory self inside the area. Even his contribution to the goal was a fluffed finish.
Mikael Ndjoli and Iain Wilson - n/a
Both were on late.
Wes Foderingham - 8
Produced the save of the game to deny Chris Burke’s free-kick with the scores still tied at 0-0. Commanded his box well.
James Tavernier - 9
Considered knocking a point off for a couple of shaky defensive moments as Jones caused him problems, but you cannot argue with three assists in one match.
Connor Goldson - 7
Brophy’s movement and tenacity caused him a few issues outside the penalty box. Was his usual commanding self in the air when crosses were slung in.
Nikola Katic - 7
Not as assured as Goldson in possession but looked the strong of the two defensively in this match.
Borna Barisic - 7
Had a solid enough game that was blotted somewhat by his own goal. In fairness, with Burke lurking behind him and the ball coming at him at a rapid pace following the nick off Boyd, there wasn’t much he could do about it.
Scott Arfield - 9
Linked midfield and attack superbly as he completed several eye-catching interchanges with his team-mates. Beaten too easily by Jones for Killie’s goal.
Andy Halliday - 8
Impressive performance from the player who looked on his way out at Ibrox. Kept things simple at the base of midfield and rarely wasted possession.
Ovie Ejaria - 7
Played a part in the third goal and had some moments where his talent shone through. Flitted in and out of the game overall.
Ryan Kent - 7
While he didn’t quite show the necessary quality in the final third, he did a power of work down the left flank after Jamie Murphy’s injury and helped nullify the threat of O’Donnell.
Alfredo Morelos - 10
Almost didn’t give him a perfect score as he picked up a ridiculous booking for a foul - while Rangers were on the attack - and should have left the officials in no doubt with a scuffed early chance that did cross the line but wasn’t awarded. However, he scored a hat-trick and tormented the Killie defence throughout the match. Anything less than a 10/10 would be churlish.
Jamie Murphy - 6
Forced from the action after only 13 minutes with what looks like a serious injury.
Daniel Candeias - 7
Lively down the right-hand side after coming on for Murphy.
Ross McCrorie and Umar Sadiq - n/a
