Morton 0-2 Rangers, Player ratings: Barrie McKay shines again, Gedion Zelalem poor again

New, comment

Barrie McKay had yet another fine performance against Morton, while Gedion Zelalem continued to be very, very Arsenal.

Wes Foderingham 5

His style has somewhat split the fans (or at least the ones at Ibrox) and he showed his best and worst attributes tonight - one fine save, and a couple of dangerous errors at dealing with aerial battles.

James Tavernier 4

A poor game from the right-back after he appeared to have put his bad spell of form behind him. Didn't influence the game in a positive manner going forwards, gave the ball away far too often, and was poor defensively to boot, although did improve in the second half.

Rob Kiernan 7

A solid, composed performance from Kiernan meant he kept his place after some recent rotation, and will certainly keep it for the next game.

Danny Wilson 6

Still looks to be struggling to overcome the flaws in his game, namely being rather one-paced and one-footed. Will hopefully grow into next season but his inability to really step up is a concern.

Lee Wallace 6

Full of plenty of running as always, but struggled to make much come off in what was a scrappy game.

Andy Halliday 7

Halliday was having one of his better games, creating the first goal albeit fortuitously but through stepping up and trying something when the team was playing badly. He'll be missed at Falkirk after his ludicrous sending-off.

Gedion Zelalem 5

Perhaps no surprise that an Arsenal player can't step up when he really needs to. The absence of Jason Holt meant that a big game was required of Zelalem, and we didn't get it. He's been a disappointment this season - he's simply not good enough at getting the ball forwards quickly or creating much positive in the final third.

Nicky Law 6

An average performance from Law, still surely miles away from being good enough to get the new contract he wants.

Martyn Waghorn 5

Disappointing after recent fine form, and gave an almost totally anonymous performance other than providing the one-two for the second goal.

Kenny Miller 6

Was responsible for a few attacks breaking down, although his finish was decent for the composure and determination to get to the ball.

Barrie McKay 8

Another excellent performance as the youngster grew into the game as it went on and excelled once again when moving into the middle of the park, not only showing his range of passing and running but also bagging a great goal.

Subs:

Dean Shiels 6

Brought composure and solidity to the team when he came on, as he usually does. Should perhaps start the game against Falkirk given the poor form of Zelalem and mediocrity of Law.

Harry Forrester 6

Didn't get on the ball too much, tried a few things, few of them came off. He needs more game time, but he'll probably have little time to impress if he wants to earn an extension on his short-term deal.

Dominic Ball 6

Didn't spend too long on the pitch, but came on to shore up the defence after Halliday's red card and did his job. Will this mean he's likely to start in defensive midfield against Falkirk? Barring any new signings, he's probably the best option.
