Scottish giants Rangers locked horns against Dundee on yesterday at the Ibrox Stadium and emerged victorious with a thumping 4-1 win over the visitors. Here is our Rangers player ratings from what transpired for the Gers against Neil McCann’s side.
Wes Foderingham 6/10
Foderingham might have failed to register a clean sheet but he marshalled the backline with a command and distributed the ball well. The custodian was hardly tested by Dundee’s offensive endeavours.
James Tavernier 7/10
The right-back looked resolute at the back and did maraud forward time and again to cause a problem to the defence of the opposition. Tavernier linked up well with Daniel Candeias and chalked a decent understanding with the winger.
Bruno Alves 7/10
For years, the Light Blues were in need of a centre-back who could bring a sense of composure at the back, and Alves is doing exactly what was needed. The Portuguese looked alert and calm throughout the game.
Fabio Cardoso 6/10
Being paired alongside Alves, Cardoso looked good as well, although there are still rooms for improvements.
Lee Wallace 6.5/10
Wallace was stupendous with his offensive prowess but there were a few scary moments for him. He linked finely with Josh Windass down the left.
Ryan Jack 7.5/10
Along with Dorrans, Jack formed a formidable partnership in the middle of the park and created a strong base for the attackers to launch themselves forward. He dictated the tempo of the game from the middle.
Graham Dorrans 7/10
The former Norwich City midfielder toiled relentlessly, studied the game well and bossed the midfield with his partner Jack.
Daniel Candeias 9/10
Candeias created havoc from the flanks and his tempting crosses into the box made him an appealing commodity to watch. The newcomer has seamlessly blended well with his new side and a lot would be expected from him this season.
Niko Kranjcar 6/10
Although Kranjcar’s outing wasn’t a sensational one, he did his basics right and made a few efforts to score goals.
Kenny Miller 6/10
The veteran forward should have done more but it was good to see the manner in which he teed up with Alfredo Morelos. Nonetheless, it was a good performance from Miller.
Alfredo Morelos 9.5/10
The Columbian forward is proving to be an astute signing as days progress, and against the Dee, he smashed a couple of goals. He is rapidly becoming a fan-favourite.
Josh Windass 8/10
He replaced Kranjcar after 54 minutes and banged a goal and assisted Carlos Pena, thus making it a fruitful outing for him.
Carlos Pena 7/10
Pena replaced Miller and has 30 minutes to prove his worth, and he did it in a fine manner by finding the back of the net once and kept testing the opposition’s defence with his attempts to score.
Aaron Nemane N/A
The Manchester City loanee was given very few minutes to do something worth noting after he replaced Candeias in the dying minutes of the second half.
