ALLAN MCGREGOR: Nothing at all to do until being forced into a decent if comfortable save early in the second half by McMann. One of the quietest days the veteran goalkeeper will have ever had in his long career. 6

JAMES TAVERNIER: Great ball onto the head of Lafferty in opening stages should have been rewarded with an assist, and was on the front foot for the majority of the game as he helped support the attack. Almost caught out for pace by McMann as he broke away in the second half, but a decent enough showing from the captain. 6

CONNOR GOLDSON: Dominant in the air and played some nice passes from the back, albeit under very little pressure. Was a threat in the Hamilton box when up for set-pieces and coasted it at the back. 6

GARETH MCAULEY: Came close with a header from a Barisic free-kick and had the cigars out at the other end as he was rarely troubled by the insipid Hamilton attack. 6

BORNA BARISIC: Provided a good outlet for Rangers down the left and backed that up with a decent end product as he consistently got himself in threatening positions. Struck up decent understanding with Grezda. 7

RYAN JACK: Took a bit of physical treatment from the Hamilton midfielders, but stood up to the battle well and gave as good as he got against MacKinnon and Taiwo. 6

ROSS MCCRORIE: A little bit jumpy in possession on occasion, but full of running and anchored the Rangers midfield effectively enough until substituted around the hour mark. 6

DANIEL CANDEIAS: Slammed home the opening goal and worked tirelessly on the right before being shifted in-field in the second half, where he continued to influence the play. Decent afternoon’s work from the winger before being given a rest late on. 7

SCOTT ARFIELD: Was deployed at the point of the midfield but couldn’t really find his range with his passing or crossing, as he overcooked several crosses beyond the back post. Almost made up for it by curling a late effort just wide. 6

EROS GREZDA: Got the ball across goal that eventually led to the opener and was a threat on the left-hand side, giving Hamilton right-back Aaron McGowan plenty to think about over the course of the game. 6

KYLE LAFFERTY: Missed a golden opportunity in the opening minute but played a part in the opener soon after. Wasn’t overly effective at holding up the ball and bringing others into play with his touch being a little off for the most part. Couldn’t believe it as Woods miraculously kept out his second-half header. 5


GLENN MIDDLETON: On for last half hour to provide a creative spark, but despite throwing in a lot of crosses, couldn’t help unlock the Hamilton backline to get the second goal that would have settled any lingering nerves. 5

ANDY HALLIDAY: Got the last 10 minutes in place of Candeias and helped to fend off the late rally from Hamilton, such as it was. 3
