Rangers return to the top of the Ladbrokes Premiership with a first-class win over Hamilton by five goals. Who was your Man of the Match?

Allan McGregor
Allan McGregor
Just like the Aberdeen game last weekend, the former Scotland 'keeper had the absolute minimum of work to do. 7
James Tavernier
James Tavernier
After an individual nightmare in Bern on Thursday, the captain turned in a much better display against Hamilton. Was given lots of space on right flank and made most of it, including a fine cross for second goal. 8
Connor Goldson
Connor Goldson
Rarely tested defensively but was able to use the ball well and capped off a strong performance with excellent attacking play for second goal. 8
George Edmundson
George Edmundson
Like Goldson, he strolled through the game. Strong in the challenge and very efficient with his passing too. Lots of potential! 8
Borna Barisic
Borna Barisic
Perhaps not involved quite as much as Tav on opposite flank but crossing was just as dangerous. Another fantastic free-kick to make things comfortable. 8
Glen Kamara
Glen Kamara
Finnish international was back to form in midfield and really used the ball well whilst applying constant pressure to win it back where required. 8
Steven Davis
Steven Davis
As per Aberdeen match last week, the lad oozed class throughout his time on the park. Noticeable our team performance dipped after he went off. 8
Scott Arfield
Scott Arfield
Contribution perhaps not quite as obvious as others but linked the play well to help open up chances. Should have done better with double-chance at start of second half after a fantastic move between him and two others. 7
Sheyi Ojo
Sheyi Ojo
Did a huge amount of work off the ball to create space and was a constant danger. Talent is there and needs to keep learning. 7
Greg Stewart
Greg Stewart
Last two domestic games have shown what a useful player Stewart is. Works hard, finds space and is able to use the ball well in tight areas. Finishing could be better but that's being picky. 8
Jermain Defoe
Jermain Defoe
His hat-trick was good enough but his overall play wins him the award. Touch, positioning and strength all still very much top class as he reaches 37 years old. Gersnet's Man of the Match 9

Substitutes

Matt Polster
Matt Polster
The American has struggled for minutes but looks more than capable when he does play. Aggressive in his press and also neat and tidy on the ball. 7
Jamie Murphy
Jamie Murphy
After more than a year out injured, the attacker looked fresh, sharp and willing for his 25 minutes. Could be a useful option this season. 7
Alfredo Morelos
Alfredo Morelos
Was clearly desperate to get onto the pitch and score-sheet as late sub, nearly doing both as contest petered out near the end. 6
