Jack Butland – 5

The Gers number one was slightly hesitant as Miovski approached his goal before slotting in the equaliser,

leaving Butland dissatisfied with his performance. He didn’t have much to do in terms of saving after that.

James Tavernier – 6

The Rangers captain had an unusually quiet evening, as he was not permitted to move forward as much as he would have liked,

with a lot of defending required, which he did admirably.

Connor Goldson – 5

The center defender, like Butland, will be dissatisfied with his efforts for Aberdeen’s goal,

with Goldson outpaced and outmuscled as Miovski levelled the scores.

John Souttar – 7

Souttar did an excellent job filling in for the injured Leon Balogun,

winning multiple battles against the extremely dangerous Miovski.

Ridvan Yilmaz – 6

Coming in for Ridvan Yilmaz, the exit-linked left-back turned in another great performance,

assisting his team both defensively and offensively.

Lawrence impresses for the Rangers.

Tom Lawrence – 8 (Man of the Match)

but they got a good glimpse at his outstanding skills against the Dons,

with the midfielder putting on an excellent overall performance.

He didn’t score, but his long-range second-half effort was followed by Cantwell,

delivering a crucial three points for the home team.

John Lundstram – 6

The midfield enforcer delivered another strong performance for Clement, keeping things moving and preventing any Aberdeen breaks.

Rabbi Matondo – 7

The winger was a big threat from the first whistle,

and he displayed outstanding reactions to be the first to fire home Ross McCausland’s parried attempt.

Todd Cantwell – 7.

Cantwell was the creative spark again at Ibrox, and like Matondo,

he was quick to react to Lawrence’s long-range strike to put the hosts ahead.


Ross McCausland – 5

As usual, the winger was quick and direct in his attacks, but as is frequently the case,

his final production let him down, even if his simple effort resulted in Matondo’s goal.

Dessers struggled at Ibrox

The summer addition had recently scored goals,

but his dismal performance against the Dons was highlighted by Clement’s decision to take him off before the hour mark.

Fabio Silva (on for Dessers, 57’) – 6

The substitute made a key contribution from the bench,

with the Wolves loanee providing a serious threat to the visitors defence time and again as his Ibrox career gains traction.
