Rangers: Arfield, Kent and Bassey struggle v Dundee

Rangers: Arfield, Kent and Bassey struggle v Dundee -Rangers News

Rangers secured a crucial 2-1 victory on Sunday lunchtime, with Connor Goldson netting a dramatic late winner for the visitors. 

Giovanni van Bronckhorst made four changes from Thursday, with Filip Helander, James Sands, Scott Arfield and Aaron Ramsey coming in for Leon Balogun, Ryan Jack, Joe Aribo and Glen Kamara.

Christie Elliot opened the scoring for Dundee early on, with James Tavernier failing to convert from the spot just before half-time. An equaliser did arrive just after the hour mark through Ramsey, with Goldson on hand to net a late winner and ensure they will go into the international break three points behind their arch-rivals at the Premiership summit.

The Transfer Tavern have used statistical experts SofaScore to analyse who the three worst outfield starters were for the Gers to have played more than 45 minutes, with these three players losing possession on 45 occasions, losing 14 duels.

Can Rangers win the Europa League?





Scott Arfield – 6.4/10

Arfield didn’t exactly have the best of returns to the starting XI and was hauled off by Van Bronckhorst at the interval after a poor first-half display.

The midfielder lost possession eight times, lost three of his four duels and failed to make a tackle, interception, key pass or cross. He also didn’t have a shot and committed one foul.

Ryan Kent – 6.4/10

Kent is next on the list, ending with a match rating of 6.5/10. The winger lost the ball on 12 occasions, was second-best in six of his 11 duels and failed to have a single shot.

The Englishman only attempted one cross all afternoon was unsuccessful in 66% of his attempted dribbles.

Calvin Bassey – 6.8/10

Bassey is the third and final man on the list (Fashion Sakala and Filip Helander also scored 6.8 but only played 45 minutes each), with the defender losing possession a whopping 25 times. The 22-year-old lost four duels and didn’t make a tackle, interception or clearance.

He also completed just one of his five attempted crosses and two of his eight long balls.
