Rangers player ratings v Celtic: Defender gets 3/10 after shaky display
By Will Butcher
Football Insider rates the Rangers players out of 10 after their 2-0 loss to Celtic on Sunday afternoon in the Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden Park.
Wes Foderingham 5 – Perhaps could have done better with Callum McGregor’s goal, as he failed to dive for a shot that crept in the corner of his goal. Shaky with the ball at his feet.
James Tavernier 5 – Rush of blood for the second goal, as he gave away a cheap penalty with a poor tackle on Scott Sinclair that was dispatched by the former Aston Villa forward.
David Bates 4 – Nervy display from the flame-haired defender, gave the ball away and looked uncomfortable in possession.
Danny Wilson 5 – Caught underneath the flight of the ball as Moussa Dembele controlled before setting up McGregor.

Myles Beerman 3 – Struggled to keep possession of the ball, giving it away more than he kept it. Patrick Roberts enjoyed too much time and space on the right; an inexperienced display, lucky not to receive red.
Andy Halliday 6 – Overzealous in the third minute with a shocking tackle on Roberts that kept him on thin ice for the rest of the match, but looked assured in other areas of his game.
Jason Holt 5 – Afforded the likes of Stuart Armstrong and McGregor way too much time in the middle of the park, as they dictated the tempo of play at Hampden Park.
Emerson Hyndman 5 – Non-existent. Looked calm when in rare possession but did nothing with it as Celtic kept arguably Rangers’ most creative player quiet.
Kenny Miller 6 – Probably the most likely of any Rangers players to create something but grew frustrated as the game wore on. Would have done himself no harm in earning a new deal.
Joe Garner 5 – Could count the number of times he touched the ball in the first half on both hands. Unlucky, as he worked hard up front.
Martyn Waghorn 6 – Got himself more involved in the match by coming deep and joining in with possession, but left Garner isolated and that caused the Gers to do little with their time on the ball.
Joe Dodoo (On for Garner, 46 mins)
Barrie McKay (On for Halliday, 46 mins)
Josh Windass (On for Hyndman, 70 mins)
