Rangers: Scott Arfield was disappointing on Sunday

Rangers came from behind to return to winnings ways on Sunday as they won 2-1 in the Premiership away from Ibrox.

The home side took the lead early on as a brilliant cross went over Allan McGregor’s head and was nodded into an empty net at the back post. Whilst the delivery in from the left was superb, the Gers shot-stopper will be disappointed that he was unable to either collect or clear the ball in the air.

They eventually found their equaliser just after the hour mark, after missing a penalty through James Tavernier in the first half, as Aaron Ramsey was on hand to tap the ball into an empty net after Kemar Roofe saw his header saved from close range.

Does Arfield deserve to be starting?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Connor Goldson then completed the turnaround as he finished on the volley after a deflection in the box in the 86th minute.

Although they picked up the three points in the end, a few players let themselves and the team down with their individual performances. One player whose display must come as a warning sign to van Bronckhorst was midfielder Scott Arfield.

The Dutch head coach must stop handing him starts as he has been on a horrific run of form in all competitions, with zero goals and zero assists in his last nine games – averaging a dismal SofaScore rating of 6.56 in that time. He also has two goals and zero assists in his last 20 outings, illustrating how little he has been providing in the final third.

In this match, the dud was abysmal on and off the ball. As per SofaScore, he lost 75% of his individual duels as he made zero blocks, interceptions or tackles. This shows that he offered almost nothing out of possession as he failed to win the ball back for his side to cut out Dundee FC attacks and set the Gers on their way.

How well do you know Morelos? First... who did he score his 100th goal against?

On the ball, he struggled to offer a threat to the opposition. Via SofaScore, he had fewer touches (27) than goalkeeper Allan McGregor (29) in the game as he failed to complete a single dribble or key pass and he came off at half time without taking a single shot.

He was deservedly hooked at the interval as he let the team down offensively and defensively, with Rangers losing 1-0 at the time of his departure from the match and winning 2-1 by the end of the game.

This latest showing, along with the eight previous matches heading into it, proves that he is not cut out to be a regular starter for Rangers in his current state. His form is off the boil and he must not start for the Gers again whilst playing at the standard he is at the moment.

AND in other news, Rangers may find Morelos 2.0 in swoop for teen predator who has 21 goals in 13 games…
