Rangers fail to regain top spot in the Premiership with a timid display at Tynecastle. Who was your Man of the Match?

Allan McGregor
Allan McGregor
Actually had minimal work to do as both teams cancelled each other out. Picked up a silly booking for dissent. 6
James Tavernier
James Tavernier
The Rangers captain is really struggling this season and won't be happy with his contribution at all - even aside from costly error that caused opening goal. 3
Connor Goldson
Connor Goldson
The big defender has had his fair share of (merited) criticism this season but was one of few players who can say they played fairly well on Sunday. Gersnet's Man of the Match 7
Niko Katic
Niko Katic
Like most Rangers players the Croatian started badly and struggled to cope with Ikpeazu for most of the game. Also booked late on in a day to forget. 5
Borna Barisic
Borna Barisic
After a poor opening ten minutes, Barisic settled into the game and offered up a reasonable display on the left side. Didn't make the most of first half attacking space though. 7
Glen Kamara
Glen Kamara
Another player struggling for form, he didn't look confident with the Hearts press and was far too passive positionally and on the ball. Out-muscled too often as well. 5
Steven Davis
Steven Davis
Didn't get in the game at all before Rangers equalised but was our best midfielder thereafter, if ultimately ineffectual as game petered out. 6
Joe Aribo
Joe Aribo
First game back after horror head injury against Livi, the Nigerian international midfielder looked fairly sharp in first half but couldn't get into the game at all after half-time. 5
Scott Arfield
Scott Arfield
The right side of Rangers play this season has been noticeably poor and the form of Arfield hasn't been good. Needs a spell out of the side. 4
Sheyi Ojo
Sheyi Ojo
Seen some of the ball in first half but was again dreadful in his use of it. Not good enough. 3
Alfredo Morelos
Alfredo Morelos
Colombian striker once again tried his best to create chances with no support or service, managing to score crucial equaliser ahead of half-time. 7

Substitutes

Ryan Kent
Ryan Kent
Former Liverpool attacker returned form injury but was unable to really make his mark in second half. 5
Greg Stewart
Greg Stewart
Can perhaps consider himself unlucky not to have started this game but also struggled to affect matters when he did come on. 5
Jermain Defoe
Jermain Defoe
Like Morelos, given next to no service for his time on the pitch so unable to make his usual mark. 5
