A sports enthusiast in his mid-twenties who reads, breathes, as well as dreams (mostly) about football and attempts to share his views with the fanatics by jotting it down. Prefers to learn through extensive interaction, communication and exploration. So don't be in a quandary and SHOOT.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst was expected to rest an array of first-team names this afternoon following their midweek masterclass in the Europa League. Celtic’s win against Hearts made today’s tie a dead-rubber clash, however, Rangers showed sheer professionalism to secure a 2-0 win over Dundee United at Ibrox.

Below are the Rangers players rated in their win against Dundee United.

Jon McLaughlin: 7

Was handed a start ahead of Allan McGregor. Was hardly tested between the sticks and had little trouble while registering the clean sheet.

James Tavernier: 8

The super skipper delivered another stellar performance with relentless attacking involvement from the right-hand flank. Exhibited his expertise by converting the spot-kick early into the second half. Was replaced by Adam Devine minutes after breaking the deadlock.

Connor Goldson: 7.5

Dominated the duels, made timely recoveries and played plenty of passes to build the game up from deep defence.

Leon King: 7.5

The teenage academy prodigy was handed a start alongside Goldson in the heart of the backline. Made some crucial interceptions, kept his concentration and showcased his potential to secure a first-team role in the long run.

Borna Barisic: 7

Although his crosses were not accurate on all occasions, the Croatian left fullback was persistent with his overlapping runs and link-up play to create chances from the flank. Made way for Charlie McCann midway through the second half.

Steven Davis: 7.5

The veteran midfielder lacked the pace at times, but his game-reading and vision helped him pull the strings as a deep-lying playmaker. Kept on creating chances one after another, whereas his smart movements allowed Rangers to dominate possession.

James Sands: 7.5

Lost an array of ground duels, but his work rate and passing excellence worked splendidly in terms of maintaining the mobility in the middle of the park.

Scott Arfield: 6.5

Was denied by Benjamin Siegrist in the early minutes. Should have been more creative high up the pitch and was eventually replaced by Alex Lowry midway through the second half.

Aaron Ramsey: 7

Returned to the starting XI recovering from an injury problem. Created a couple of chances and looked purposeful with his passes in and around the attacking third. Made way for Glen Kamara late in the game.

Scott Wright: 6

Another underwhelming display from the Scotsman who failed to leave an impact all throughout the first half. Was replaced by Amad Diallo at the break.

Fashion Sakala: 8.5

The pacy centre-forward not only won the spot-kick but also set it up perfectly for Amad who made no mistake to find the target. Had a couple of attempts denied by Siegrist in the Dundee United goal.

Rangers Subs vs Dundee United

Amad Diallo: 7.5

Was lively from the wide as he made an instant impact in the Gers’ attack. Fired in late in the game to grab the insurance goal.

Alex Lowry: 7

Offered some creative spark as a wide attacker. An eventful week for the teenager who penned a new contract.

Adam Devine: 7

Did well as the right fullback since replacing Tavernier.

Charlie McCann: 7

A good few minutes for the former Manchester United prospect who holds a bright future ahead.

Glen Kamara: 7

Calmed things down during the final quarter of the contest.
