For the first time this year, Rangers win three games in a row, despite going behind to an early County opener at a freezing Ibrox.

Wes Foderingham - 6

Like most of the team, still looked half asleep the opening goal and almost contributed to a late equaliser as he dropped a cross due to clashing with own player.

James Tavernier - 6

Not as effective as he's been lately - especially in the first half - but can point to his late free kick which helped clinch the win.

Bruno Alves - 6

Unsurprisingly preferred to David Bates in defence, the Portuguese star didn't cover himself in glory at County goal and needs to do more defensively in games.

Danny Wilson - 6

For the second time in a week, Wilson was a goal hero as late header won the game for the Ibrox men. Aside from that he did OK but never looks overly convincing defensively.

Declan John - 6

With almost all Rangers attacking play going down our right, the Welshman was rarely involved in the game. Was caught missing at County goal after losing possession in away side's half.

Ross McCrorie - 7 (Gersnet Man of the Match)

Despite being forced off with a second half injury, it says a lot about the lad’s first team contribution so far that Rangers fans are worried he may miss this week’s vital clash with Hibs at Easter Road. Covers so much ground and is capable of good creative work as well.

Daniel Candeias - 6

Had an awful first half in more withdrawn role but did improve slightly after the break when Rangers moved to more orthodox four man midfield. Has to be more careful in his distribution and positioning.

Jason Holt - 7

The diminutive midfielder grew more into the game as the match went on and his energy was vital late on. However, he also needs to do more to get on the ball and makes things happen in more forward areas.

Carlos Pena - 4

The Mexican did offer his usual good runs but he was rarely found as Rangers struggled in the first half. Not a surprise to see him kept in after the break but the same could have happened with most other players.

Kenny Miller - 4

Miller will point to him helping create the equaliser and hitting the bar late on but his contribution overall was very poor and he can consider himself lucky to have seen out the bulk of the 90mins.

Josh Windass - 6

Windass was one of few players who did OK in the first half but the change of shape in the second cost him more than most as all Rangers play proceeded down the right. Important assist for the clincher.

Substitutions:

Alfredo Morelos - 7

A welcome return to the first team and the scoring charts for the Columbian striker. Was slightly rusty to start with but came onto a game after that and finished confidently for the equaliser.

Jamie Barjonas - 6

The young midfielder replaced McCrorie with 20mins left and can be happy with his efforts in the centre. Wednesday could be a big test for him if he makes the starting XI v Hibs.

Eduardo Herrera - 5

Once again a late cameo for the Mexican with no time to really contribute.
