Inverness 0-1 Rangers: Five things we learned

Mark Warburton’s Rangers side picked up their first away win in the league since the 2-1 win over Dundee in August seeing off Inverness Caley Thistle 1-0. Here’s five things we learned from tonight's win:

Rangers still lack that cutting edge in attack

Despite dominating possession throughout the game, Rangers couldn't kill off Caley with a decisive second goal. As the game wore on Rangers looked a bit more vulnerable defensively and, as we’ve seen plenty this season, this Rangers team can concede goals in almost any situation.

We’ve idea whats going on at centre-back

OK Danny Wilson has picked up a knock and missed out as a ‘precaution’ but GTBFO have absolutely no idea who is the first-choice pairing in central defence. Does Warburton even have an idea of who his preferred pairing are?

Kenny Miller is still really important to us

He might be on his third go around and doesn't have the same pace he used to but Miller is still a key component in our squad. From the way he is constantly driving others on to his own regularly impressive performances, Joes Garner, Dodoo and Martyn Waghorn face a fight to depose King Kenny.

Barrie McKay could do with a spell out the team

It’s fair to say everyone has huge expectations of McKay and, off the back of last season's performances, fans were hoping he would make the step up to the Premiership with ease but the winger has struggled so far this season. A short spell on the sidelines might be on everyone’s interest. It gives the player a chance to recharge and continue working hard to improve and goves Warburton an opportunity to try others wide on the left.

Niko Kranjcar, when he can be bothered, still has ‘it’

It’s maybe a little harsh to say ‘bothered’ but the Croatian has blown hot and cold since arriving from New York Cosmos. Tonight was one of his better performances however, regularly showing for passes, picking team-mates out and even tracking runners, but similar performances have been few and far between. Hopefully over the next few weeks Kranjcar can continue to prove his doubters wrong.
