Rangers: Bassey, Arfield and McGregor struggle vs St. Johnstone

Rangers: Bassey, Arfield and McGregor struggle vs St. Johnstone -Rangers News

Glasgow Rangers cruised to a 2-0 win at home to St. Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership on Wednesday night.

Goals from Alfredo Morelos and Ryan Kent were more than enough to see off the SPFL’s bottom side, but given their dominance in terms of shots and possession, and the fact that Celtic have a better goal difference than them, they may have been left feeling aggrieved that they did not get more.

That said, it was the type of dominant performance that will breed competition for places within the squad, and not everyone will be happy with their individual displays.

Using statistical experts SofaScore, The Transfer Tavern have now analysed who the three worst performers (to have played at least 45 minutes) for the hosts were on the night, as they may now be looking over their shoulder as they attempt to keep Giovanni van Bronckhorst happy…

Allan McGregor

Very harsh given that he kept a clean sheet, McGregor was given a relatively low 7.3 by SofaScore, perhaps mainly down to how quiet things were for him.

The goalkeeper had just one save to make, had one successful punched clearance and only had to run out and claim the ball once also.

However, his 86% pass accuracy was actually one of the lowest in the team, while he was also guilty of giving the ball away on four separate occasions in the match, hardly ideal for the man between the posts.

Scott Arfield

Like McGregor, Arfield was also given a 7.3 overall rating by SofaScore.

The only Gers player to be booked in the game, the central midfielder lost out on three of his duels, and also failed to record a single dribble, clearance or interception, while he lost possession three times.

Calvin Bassey

Perhaps harsh again given the clean sheet, Bassey was ranked as the Light Blues’ worst player on the night with a 7.2 rating from SofaScore.

Should Rangers start Bassey?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The makeshift central defender did not make a clearance, interception or tackle, while he also lost the ball seven times.

It was a good night overall for the Teddy Bears as they picked up another three points on their way to retaining the title, but these three will surely be looking to get right at the weekend when they host Dundee United.
