Attacker must be axed: Three things we learned about Rangers from draw with Partick

By James Black

Rangers could only manage to a 2-2 draw against Partick Thistle on Friday as Pedro Caixinha’s missed the chance to draw level with Celtic in the Scottish Premiership.

Goals from Alfredo Morelos and Graham Dorrans, either side of Partick Thistle’s two goals, saw Rangers take a point as ten-man Thistle survived a late onslaught.

Chris Erskine’s second-half red card saw Thistle pounded by Rangers’ attack in the first of two games between the sides in the space of four days.

The Gers strolled the first-half and should have been further in front at half-time and when Thistle came out for the second-half and pushed Rangers forward, Pedro Caixinha’s side had no response.

Dorrans’ brilliant strike earned the Light Blues a point but it really should have been three.

Caixina’s side struggled to break Partick down at times and, despite their numerical advantage, couldn’t grab a late winner.

So, what did we learn about Rangers in their Friday night showdown? Plenty, including why an attacker must be axed and how a substitute could be the answer to a growing Caixinha dilemma.
