JAK ALNWICK 6 The Englishman was back between the sticks on cup duty as he took over from Wes Foderingham. Couldn’t stop Muirhead levelling the scores at 1-1 but made a smart stop to deny Longridge from a free-kick.

JAMES TAVERNIER 7 A steady and solid showing from the right-back. Not overly tested in a defensive sense and tried to exert his influence at the opposite end of the park.

DAVID BATES 6 Has been tipped to push for a Scotland call-up by boss Murty but will face bigger tests than the Bairns in the coming weeks. Comfortable after the break as Rangers controlled the game.

BRUNO ALVES 6 Made his return to action against St Johnstone in midweek and was back in the starting line-up here as he replaced Russell Martin. Steady enough as he looks to get back up to speed.

ANDY HALLIDAY 7 Continued at left-back in the absence of Lee Wallace and Declan John and could now find himself pitched into derby action. Equipped himself well and was always looking to play his part in the final third.

SEAN GOSS 7 Could find himself at the centre of a transfer tug-of-war between Rangers and QPR in the summer. Produced another accomplished showing in midfield before being replaced.

GREG DOCHERTY 7 Put in another tireless shift in midfield as he continues to grow into life at Ibrox. Partnership with Goss is improving all the time.

DANIEL CANDEIAS 7 Split the Bairns defence to set Cummings free for the first goal and then delivered the cross that Muirhead put into his own net as Rangers went in 3-1 ahead at the break.

JOSH WINDASS 6 Couldn’t add to the three goals he got in the previous round against Fraserburgh but still played his part for the Gers. Looked in real discomfort after a challenge from Grant in the second half but shook off the knock.

JASON CUMMINGS 8 Has been frustrated with a lack of game time in recent weeks but he made his presence felt at Ibrox. Took his first goal well from a tight angle and then showed good feet to convert the second. Got his hat-trick with 15 minutes remaining with a neat finish.

ALFREDO MORELOS 6 A rare off-day for the Colombian as he spurned a host of chances to add to his tally this term. Not short of effort but didn’t have his shooting boots on.


JASON HOLT (for Goss) 5 Has lost his place in the side as Goss and Docherty have formed an impressive partnership in recent weeks. Still has a part to play in the squad, though, and he helped Murty’s side get over the line.

KENNY MILLER (for Candeias) 3 On for the final minutes and had little chance to make an impact.

JOE DODOO (for Windass) 3 Hasn’t been able to force his way into Murty’s plans since returning from Charlton but was given a rare run-out here.
