Rangers player ratings v Aberdeen: Attacker has a shocker, gets 3/10
By Will Butcher
Football Insider rates the Rangers players out of 10 following their 2-1 loss to rivals Aberdeen at Ibrox on Wednesday night.
Wes Foderingham 9 – Unbelievable performance from the former Swindon Town stopper. Had it not been for the Gers goalkeeper, the scoreline could have been north of five.
James Tavernier 6 – Solid at right-back, as he offered the most leadership in defence. Called the line for the back four, but failed to do anything out of the ordinary.
Aidan Wilson 6 – Looked composed on his debut and comfortable when in possession. But his performance deteriorated from then on in
David Bates 5 – Uncomfortable when in possession, Bates hammered the ball up field when put under any pressure. Dived in needlessly on Graeme Shinnie for the opening goal.

Lee Hodson 5 – Unlucky to be withdrawn after 18 minutes with what appeared to be a lower leg injury.
Jon Toral 4 – Offered little going forward and lost the ball on numerous occasions. Looked lazy and lethargic, failed to have an impact whatsoever.
Josh Windass 8 – Windass seemed to be the only outfield Gers player trying. Playing with a sense of passion, Windass was combative, hard-working but clever when in possession. Top assist for Waghorn’s goal.
Barrie McKay 5 – Non existent. What separates McKay from the best is that he goes missing for entire an 90 minutes, but will turn up next week. Needs consistency.
Kenny Miller 6 – Better than most, but even Miller was quiet against the Dons despite scoring twice against Derek McInnes’ side last time out.
Joe Garner 5 – Missed a sitter early on, as he was fed by Miller before curling an effort round the wrong side of the post when he should have done a lot better.
Joe Dodoo 3 – Just awful. Lost the ball every time the attacker was in possession, no positional sense and failed to provide any kind of an attack whatsoever. Hauled at half time.
Myles Beerman (On for Hodson, 18 mins) 6 – Still showing signing of inexperience, but was comfortable on the left flank and showed why he will give captain Lee Wallace a run for his money when the skipper returns.
Martyn Waghorn (On for Dodoo, 45 mins) 7 – Top finish to score his first goal since March 18, which is his 16th goal of the season.
Jamie Barjonas (On for Toral, 58 mins) 6
