Rangers player ratings v Kilmarnock: Defensive duo get 7/10
By Will Butcher
Football Insider rates the players out of 10 after their 0-0 draw against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park on Wednesday night in the Scottish Premiership.
Wes Foderingham 6 – Had little to do tonight as the Gers dominated both possession and territory, but coped well enough with anything thrown at him.
James Tavernier 5 – Struggled on the right side of defence, dicing with death on multiple occasions as he seemed in fiery mood. Picked up a yellow card in his first game back after suspension.
David Bates 5 – Was manhandled by veteran striker Kris Boyd on multiple occasions but managed to keep the former Middlesbrough ace from scoring. Okay-ish performance.
Danny Wilson 7 – Was strong at the back alongside a makeshift Rangers defence, standing head and shoulders over centre-back partner Bates. Could, and should, have been captain.

Myles Beerman 7 – The teenage left-back was solid in place of captain Lee Wallace, who is looking to recover from illness. Nutmegged Connor Salmon twice, a highlight among fans.
Andy Halliday 4 – Struggled after being given a chance back in the side, his first touch letting him down on multiple occasions. Space was missing from his game, with opposition players predicting his every move with ease.
Emerson Hyndman 6 – Did little throughout the first half, but his impact was missing when substituted in the 46th minute as the Gers lacked creativity.
Jason Holt 6 – Broke up play well in the middle of the park well and did his job, but failed to add anything extra to that.
Joe Garner 5 – Despite his recent good form from the substitutes’ bench, former Preston striker Garner struggled to get involved and was replaced in the 73rd minute by Joe Dodoo.
Barrie McKay 4 – Like Garner, the Gers academy product went missing throughout the match as he struggles to replicate the form that made him one of his side’s best attacking stars earlier in the season.
Martyn Waghorn 5 – Unlucky throughout as he was given little service, but struggled to change that himself by looking to get involved. Quiet, uneventful performance.
Kenny Miller (On for Hyndman, 46 mins)
Joe Dodoo (On for Garner, 73 mins)
Josh Windass (On for Waghorn, 80 mins)
