Allan McGregor
Allan McGregor
Wasn't called upon too often last night but made a crucial double-stop late in the game which showed his usual class and reliability. 9
James Tavernier
James Tavernier
Not much came off in attacking sense for the off-form right back but defensively he was sound and ability in the air was an important out ball at times to help us gain territory. 6
Connor Goldson

It's says a lot when opposition strikers tend to play on Rangers' other centre-half in most games as the big Englishmen is very difficult to get past on the ground or in the air. Another strong performance from the vice-captain. 8
Filip Helander
Filip Helander
Strength, positioning, experience and quality when on the ball too; on this evidence it’s easy to see why Rangers paid over £3m for the Swedish centre-back. Late booking aside he was rarely beaten by Porto's attackers and read the game very well at times. Gersnet's Man of the Match 9
Borna Barisic
Borna Barisic
Croatian left-back was harshly booked early on but this seemed to focus his mind and he went on to deliver a wonderful performance down the left flank. Curving cross-field pass to Morelos for the equaliser was as good as it gets. 9
Ryan Jack
Ryan Jack
Perhaps not quite as effective after the double-blow of being booked then giving the ball away that led to Porto's opener but never hid and is clearly key to how this Rangers team uses the ball in deeper areas. 8
Steven Davis
Steven Davis
Was perhaps guilty of givng the ball away too cheaply in opening half-hour but came onto a top-class game and was vital in terms of winning the ball back and looking after it. 8
Glen Kamara
Glen Kamara
Like Davis, didn't have his best game until after 30mins or so. From then on, he used the ball sensibly and positioned himself well defensively. 7
Brandon Barker
Brandon Barker
A surprise starter, the former Man City attacker also grew into the game after a nervy start and his work-rate across the pitch was hugely impressive and much missed when taken off late on. 8
Ryan Kent
Ryan Kent
Given a free role when Rangers got on the ball and he was a constant threat throughout, if wasteful now and again in good areas. Sharpness after injury pleasing to all though! 8
Alfredo Morelos
Alfredo Morelos
Difficult to find new superlatives to describe this world class striker who just keeps coming up with the goods. Could have had a hat-trick as well with a bit more luck! 9

Substitutes

Joe Aribo
Joe Aribo
Late sub did fairly well to get up to the pace of the game but didn't keep the ball as well as he'd have liked once or twice. 5
Sheyi Ojo
Sheyi Ojo
Got on the ball well once or twice but seemed to struggled to know where to be in a defensive sense. 5
Scott Arfield
Scott Arfield
Made a couple of important interceptions late on and helped fill space as Porto pressed for winner. 5
