Nikhil has been an avid Chelsea fan for as long as the concept of time has existed and rumours say that he even bleeds blue. Having lived in the UK for 3 years, Nikhil is said to have an excellent understanding of the atmosphere surrounding the English game. His role model is the greatest manager of all time - Jose Mourinho.

Premiership giants Rangers continued to their unbeaten run this season with a 3-2 comeback victory against Standard Liege in the Europa League. The away side took the lead on a couple of separate occasions, only for Rangers to turn things around later on. Steven Gerrard’s men came back from the first Liege goal through a Connor Goldson header, after which a James Tavernier penalty brought then level a second time. It finally took a well-crafted Scott Arfield goal to give the Ibrox club the advantage. The win means that Rangers have now progressed into the next round of the Europa League with a game still to spare.

Rangers Player Ratings Vs Standard Liege

Allan McGregor – 7

The veteran stopper looked confident in between the sticks for the most part and was composed when collecting set-pieces as well. Made a couple of smart saves over the ninety too.

James Tavernier – 7

The Rangers skipper scored the Ibrox club’s second equalising goal tonight from the penalty spot. He defended effectively when required to and tried to get forward whenever possible.

Connor Goldson – 7.5

The Englishman’s defensive sturdiness was display once again tonight as he held his position extremely well in the second half. Did well to pull away from his marker and score a goal as well.

Leon Balogun – 7

The Nigerian could’ve done a better job ahead of the first Liege goal but did redeem himself in the second half. Made some good blocks and interception when called into action defensively.

Borna Barisic – 7

The Croatian international played in a quite sensational pass into Goldson for the Gers’ first equaliser of the night. Dropped back and defended efficiently when required to do so as well.

Steven Davis – 7.5

The veteran midfielder’s contributions in the middle of the park continue to increase in importance with each passing game. Kept the ball well and played some slick passes in attack too.

Glen Kamara – 8

The Finnish midfielder’s display in the core of side was dazzling, as it has consistently been over recent weeks. Played some good forward passes and his movement in the core of the team was sharp too.

Scott Arfield – 8.5

The attacking-midfielder continued his fine run of form for the Ibrox club with yet another beautiful goal. Never looked flustered in the engine room and offered a good attacking presence as well.

Ryan Kent – 7.5

Although not everything the English speedster tried came off, his movement and directness were as important as they usually are. The pass he produced ahead of Scott Arfield’s goal was sublime.

Alfredo Morelos – 7

Worked hard in the final third of the pitch and ensured that he didn’t give the Liege attackers too much time to work the ball around. Dropped into midfield to help out defensively at times.

The Jamaican striker took the shot that led to the Rangers penalty in the first half of the fixture. Tried to impose himself with force in the final third but couldn’t produce what was required in the attack.
