By Dominic Toner
Football Insider rates the Rangers players after their 2-1 win against Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership.
Wes Foderingham 7 – Looked impressive in the Rangers goal and made several top saves to frustrate the Aberdeen attackers.
Lee Hodson 7 – Replaced James Tavernier at right-back and defended well during the game despite an early booking. Scored the second goal with an emphatic finish.
Rob Kiernan 6 – Was helped by his centre-back partner Clint Hill and looked solid in defence.
Clint Hill 6 – Proved that he has been a big miss in the defence, the 38-year-old was the leader at the back. Made numerous blocks, but was needlessly sent off for a second yellow card in stoppage time.

Lee Wallace 6 – Should have opened the scoring one-on-one with the goalkeeper, but did his defensive duties well.
Jason Holt 6 – Made a number of big challenges in the midfield and screened the back four well.
Andy Halliday 7 – Very intelligent in the Rangers midfield and also offered good attacking support.
Barrie McKay 7 – Was handed his first start since the Celtic defeat and showed great composure on the ball. Great assist for Lee Hodson’s goal.
Michael O’Halloran 6 – Showed great pace and desire during the game, but was unable to find quality in front of goal
Joe Garner 7 – Missed a couple of good chances in the first-half, brilliant assist for Kenny Miller’s goal.
Kenny Miller 8 – Brilliant anticipation to get on the end of a Joe Garner cross to open the scoring. The 36-year-old continues to be a crucial part of the club and showed his forward instincts.
James Tavernier (for Kenny Miller 64mins) 6
Martyn Waghorn (for Michael O’Halloran 66mins) 7
Harry Forrester (for Barrie McKay 77mins) 6
