ALEXANDER (6) Carried out his duties with quiet efficiency.

Saved a goal-bound shot from John Neil late on.

HEGARTY (6) Retained his place in the starting line-up, but moved to right-back to accommodate Ross Perry at centre-half. Did well.

PERRY (6) Started his first game since returning from surgery on a hernia. Showed no signs of rustiness whatsoever. Helped Rangers keep a clean sheet.

CRIBARI (6) The Brazilian defender reads the game superbly. Was alert to what little attacking threat the visitors posed. Excellent in the air.

WALLACE (6) The left-back had the simplest of tasks to open the scoring in the 21st minute. Always keen to get upfield.

LITTLE (3) Hardly involved in proceedings. Limped off with a hamstring strain midway through the first half.

HUTTON (6) Decent. Sent his wide men clear with a succession of accurate passes in both halves. Brings a solidity to his team's play.

MACLEOD (6) Quieter than he has been in recent weeks. Still, he was more than a match for opposite number Pat Scullion.

McKAY (7) His vision and passing were exemplary. Gavin Brown, the Clyde left-back, will want to forget his encounter with the 17-year-old in a hurry.

TEMPLETON (8) Set up the opening goal for Wallace with a fine piece of skill. Netted the second himself superbly before half-time. By some distance, his team's star performer.

McCULLOCH (6) Linked well with his fellow front men McKay and Templeton throughout. No goals on this occasion, though, for the captain. Had one effort chalked off for offside in the first half.


SHIELS (5) Took over from Little. Sewed up the win with a well-taken goal in the second half.

CRAWFORD (3) Given a run-out with a few minutes remaining.

COLE (3) Replaced Cribari with the three points safely secured.
