Match Ratings - Livingston 0 - 3 Rangers

ALLAN MCGREGOR - 7

Pipe and slippers day for the big man. Not much to do at all.

JAMES TAVERNIER - 8

Really pleasing performance after a quieter game on Wednesday night in that new formation. Really looked pleased to have Candeias back in front of him and they combined to great effect for Kent's goal.

JOE WORRALL - 7

Thought he was excellent throughout, barely put a foot wrong. He let Katic go and challenge the ball and he dealt with mopping up behind. Good way to bounce back after Wednesday's horrible mistake.

NIKO KATIC – 8

Great to see Katic back and even better to see him put in a solid performance. Hopefully stays in the team for Wednesday and starts to play himself back into the fold.

BORNA BARISIC - 7

Back in the team at the expense of Halliday. One terrific ball in from deep which Morelos glanced just over showed exactly what he can do. Always a threat with his set piece delivery as well and now desperately needs a clear run of games.

ROSS MCCRORIE - 8

Just play him every game. Terrific performance, breaks up play so well and looks to advance the ball at every opportunity. One of the first names on the teamsheet for me and certainly first pick in the holding role.

RYAN JACK - 7

Great to see him get another goal and he didn't do much wrong at all in the game. Would still like him to grab the game by the scruff of the neck more and try to get the ball forward quicker.

SCOTT ARFIELD - 7

A game of two halves I would say. Not much came off for Arfield in the first half, but as our pressing increased in the second so did his performance. Terrific effort to win the ball from Halkett and play a lovely ball through for Morelos final goal.

DANIEL CANDEIAS – 9 MOTM

So vital in this formation and against teams like this. Terrific tenacity to win the ball back in the first half and play a gorgeous ball through from Morelos. Crucial in the press and gives such crucial support to Tav.

RYAN KENT – 8

Continued with another solid shift here and added a goal as well which can only be a good thing. Really improving on decision making and bravey on the ball and long may it continue.

ALFREDO MORELOS – 8

A typical Morelos performance and it looked like the misses would unfairly get the headlines over his all action display but thankfully he got on the end of Arfields through ball late on and showed terrific composure to round the keeper and slot the ball home from an ever decreasing angle.

JERMAINE DEFOE - 3

On for Morelos at 3-0 to get some more game time and did OK.

STEVEN DAVIS - 3

Double sub with Defoe, couple of neat and tidy touches but fitness still needs some work.

ANDY HALLIDAY - 3

Replaced Barisic late on and slotted in well.

STEVEN GERRARD - 8

I was critical after Wednesday so credit where it's due. I though the 4-4-2 might have been a better option here but we played Livingston at their own game and destroyed them on the counter. A really positive win.
