After another wonderful evening under the lights it Ibrox we rate the players in their win over Feyenoord.

Allan McGregor
Allan McGregor
The former Scotland goalkeeper was always going to be a key figure and he didn't let his team down with a number of vital saves in the second half. 8
James Tavernier
James Tavernier
The club captain hasn't really got going this season and once again didn't have his best game from right back, including missing an early penalty. The skipper didn't hide though and performed his defensive duties diligently for the most part. 6
Connor Goldson
Connor Goldson
The big centre-half has arguably been the unfair target of some fans after a couple of bad performances of late but, one or two slack periods on the ball aside, had a solid game last night. Should have done better with first half header that went over the bar. 6
Filip Helander
Filip Helander
The £3m signing from Serie A jumpstarted his Rangers career with a composed display at the heart of the defence. Booked in the second half which tempered his front foot style somewhat but positioning was very good late on. 8
Borna Barisic
Borna Barisic
Currently Croatia's first choice left back, the former Osijek player has struggled to really get going at Rangers but offered a fine contribution last night. Says a lot that Feyenoord's main threat was via opposite flank. 8
Ryan Jack
Ryan Jack
This season's stand out player returned from injury and once more led the show in midfield. Awareness and vision first class and rarely gives the ball away while also covering right side of the park very well in a defensive sense. Only error was a poor effort when put through by Morelos in the second half. Gersnet's Man of the Match 9
Steven Davis
Steven Davis
The Ulsterman has good experience of this level of opposition from his first spell at Rangers and his time in the EPL and it showed last night with his reading of the game and use of the ball. A class act but did tire towards the end. 8
Glen Kamara
Glen Kamara
Preferred to Joe Aribo in midfield, the Finnish midfielder supplied his usual poise and steel throughout the first hour before fading somewhat as game went on. Will be a vital player this season. 7
Scott Arfield
Scott Arfield
After playing right through the summer with Canada, Arfield hasn't looked his usual self at times this season. However, last night he was busy throughout and very unlucky not to score when first half snap shot hit the top of the post. Tired late on and likely to be rested this Sunday. 7
Sheyi Ojo
Sheyi Ojo
On-loan Liverpool attacker once again stepped up in a big game with a superb winning goal. Not as effective after half-time but was dangerous in opening period and very unlucky not to add a second before half-time. 7
Alfredo Morelos
Alfredo Morelos
Finishing and decision-making were poor as he tired later in the match but quite simply the Colombian frightened the life out of the Dutch rear-guard for most of the 90mins. A majestic wee player! 8

Substitutes

Brandon Barker
Brandon Barker
After a fine performance in last Saturday's league match, the former Man City winger didn't quite hit the same heights as a sub again last night. Took too long to get to grips with pace of the game and needed to use the ball better. 4
Joe Aribo
Joe Aribo
Perhaps should have came on earlier than he did but the big Nigerian settled into the game pretty well and kept the ball well as the clock ticked down. 5
Andy King
Andy King
Another squad player who will see more game-time as season goes on but had little chance to affect matters last night as injury time sub. 3
