Football Insider rates how Rangers’ players performed in their 2-1 win against St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park on Sunday.
Jak Alnwick 7 – Looked assured on debut, and made a few decent saves when called upon. But overall he did not have too much to do.
James Tavernier 7 – Did brilliantly well to set up Toral for his goal, and looked dangerous going forward all afternoon. He was rarely called upon in defence but he looked slightly uncertain when he was.
David Bates 5 – Mix-up with Wilson for St Johnstone’s first goal, looked average at the back and nervous in possession. A solid first season for the 20-year-old, who can only go one way next term.
Aidan Wilson 6 – Like Bates, he should have done better with St Johnstone’s goal. Despite being less experienced than his defensive partner he looked
Myles Beerman 5 – The 18-year-old had a quiet afternoon, looked solid in defence and reasonable going forward. He has had a good breakthrough season and will only improve next season.
Jason Holt 6 – Did Rangers’ dirty work and looked decent in possession, but did not do anything special or memorable.
Jamie Barjonas 5 – Did what his manager asked of him but like Holt he was unremarkable and if he is to make an impact next season a big improvement is needed from the youngster.
Jon Toral 6 – Had a bright first half and threatened St Johnstone’s goal more than once in the first period. Finished coolly early in the second 45, but should have scored at least one more.
Josh Windass 7 – Was full of running and beat defenders on more than one occasion but his final product was poor
Kenny Miller 8 – Worked hard up top as always, missed a difficult chance mid-way through the first half, but finished in fine fashion on the brink of half time.
Martyn Waghorn 7 – Did well to beat his man and cross for Miller’s goal, but spurned a golden opportunity shortly after Rangers’ second.
Barrie McKay 6 (on for Toral 75′) – Not enough time to make an impact.
Kyle Bradley 6 (on for Waghorn 85′) – Not enough time to make an impact.
