Rangers had a tricky away test this afternoon against Hibernian ahead of their trip to Eindhoven for Wednesday night’s decisive Champions League playoff clash. The Light Blues were determined for all three points in their quest for the Scottish crown, but they suffered a massive setback after going down to 9 men in the second half. A stoppage time screamer from Josh Cambell ruined all their effort at Easter Road.

Below are the Rangers players rated in their 2-2 draw against Hibernian.

Jon McLaughlin: 6.5

Could have done little to stop both goals. Made some decent saves late in the game, but his efforts went in vain following Cambell’s equalizer.

James Tavernier: 7.5

Showed his expertise from the spot and earned his side a crucial lead moments before the half-time whistle. His relentless runs and attacking threats caused menace in Hibs’ defence. But the Englishman could have been more alert defensively on a few occasions.

Connor Goldson: 6.5

Was strong in the air. Also made some crucial clearances while defending the 2-1 lead in the closing minutes of the contest. Should have done better in terms of playing it out from deep defence.

James Sands: 6

Lacked concentration during the build-up of Martin Boyle’s goal. Won the majority of duels, but his passing game was not up to the mark given the standard set in the previous outings.

Borna Barisic: 7

Must take the blame for Boyle’s goal as he should have defended the back post better. But he compensated with an exquisite cross that helped Lawrence restore the lead minutes later.

Ryan Jack: 6.5

Worked really hard in the centre of the pitch. But his job became more difficult after John Lundstram’s marching order. Yet to regain his rhythm deep down the midfield.

Tom Lawrence

John Lundstram: 5.5

Was combative in the middle of the park, but he made a bad tackle from behind that resulted in a straight red midway through the second half. Should have shown more maturity considering his profile and personality.

Rabbi Matondo: 6

An underwhelming display from the Welsh winger who kept on failing with his dribbling attempts. Could not threaten enough high up the pitch; also got dispossessed far too easily. Made way for Steven Davis soon after Lundstram’s dismissal.

Tom Lawrence: 8

Maintained his scoring streak with a solid header. Exhibited his creative spark from an advanced midfield slot. Was taken off just over the hour mark in favour of Scott Arfield.

Ryan Kent: 6

His pace and flair have kept the opponents on their toes, but the Englishman needs to improve his decision-making in terms of final deliveries from the left-hand flank. Was replaced by Leon King after Morelos’ marching order.

Antonio Colak: 7

Had a few attempts off target. Did enough though, to win a spot-kick that earned them a lead late in the first half. Was replaced by Alfredo Morelos around the hour mark.

Rangers Subs Vs Hibernian

Alfredo Morelos: 4

A controversial red card saw him leaving the pitch within 15 minutes of his introduction.

Scott Arfield: 6

Tried his best to defend the scoreline after being down to 9 men.

Steven Davis: 6

Made some crucial clearances and interceptions in the defensive third.

Leon King: 6

Was brought in to defend the 2-1 margin in the final minutes of the match.
