Match Ratings - Aberdeen 1 - 1 Rangers

ALLAN MCGREGOR - 8

Very unlucky not to get to the penalty and a couple of huge saves in the second half. Couldn't have done much more.

JAMES TAVERNIER - 6

Should have put his laces through the chance in first half stoppage time, even on his weaker foot. Caught in transition for the penalty but he was trying to give Candeias an option and wouldn't have expected him to lose the ball.

JOE WORRALL - 8 MOTM

Thought he was terrific, really composed finish for the goal and didn't really put a foot wrong other wise. Still looks a bit 'last-ditch' in his defending but I think that's just the type of player he is.

CONNOR GOLDSON – 5

Quite under par for me here. Definitely didn't relish the physical challenge with Cosgrove and seemed to struggle to deal with him all game. Thought he could have cleared the ball earlier for the penalty, but Mackay-Steven was on his blind side so not sure he could have done anything about it.

BORNA BARISIC - 6

Still looks very nervy, but thought he did OK here compared to the lasty couple of games but without really offering a huge amount.

GLEN KAMARA - 6

Midfield were second best all game and Kamara was a part of that. Just felt like he couldn't get going at all. He won the ball back a few times and tried to get things going, but were very dysfunctional and couldn't string two passes together.

RYAN JACK - 5

First poor game in a while, and it was pretty poor. I wonder if he was potentially carrying the knock that's since came to light as he didn't look right at all. One of those games where he didn't really offer much, and we needed him too.

SCOTT ARFIELD - 5

Didn't look fit - but never really looks fit. Wasn't in it at all in the first half and seemed to be playing near enough up top with Alfie in the second half. This caused us an issue in midfield as we were getting swamped. Unlucky with his chance on the counter in the second half but not a great day at the office. 

DANIEL CANDEIAS – 6

Lost the ball in the run up to the goal by deliberating too much in a dangerous area. Again ran his heart out but quality wasn't up to his usual speed. Was dangerous on the counter late on but a culmination of offside flags and bad decisions on his part meant it was to no avail.

RYAN KENT – 7

Again a bit of an in and out game. Not really involved much in the first half as Aberdeen cut off the supply lines & was relatively dangerous on the counter in the second but again just lacking that final bit of quality or composure when needed.

ALFREDO MORELOS - 5

His booking for diving really seemed to dampen his edge in this game. A lot of decisions went against him during the game - the majority looked very very harsh. Almost like he reverted to almost playing within himself to ensure he definitely didn't get sent off and it showed.

STEVEN GERRARD - 5

First half was really really poor and while he clearly fired a rocket a half time how many more times can he get away with doing it? We need to offer more in these games as it seems like we just reverted to type from the first minute and played right into Aberdeen's hands.
