Rangers 1 - 1 Olympique de Marseille

Rangers 1 – 1 Olympique de Marseille: Here’s how they rated

Wes Foderingham – 7

Didn’t have much to do in the first half, but two good reaction stops in the second which were palmed away from danger. Possibly should be an 8 for the staunchness of his new ‘tangerine’ kit.

James Tavernier – 9

One of Tav’s best matches for a long time in light blue. Had the daunting task of dealing with Payet and handled him extremely well. Not only great defensively but showed the beginnings of a great partnership with Daniel Candeias down the right channel.

Fabio Cardoso – 7

Looked very comfortable alongside Bruno Alves which will give the Gers fans great hope of a solid pairing going into the season. Described in L’Equip as ‘brutal’ and that’s just what we’ve been missing. He’ll do for me.

Bruno Alves – 8

Strolled through his debut for Rangers and never looked uneasy at any point. Commanding in the air and impressive with the ball at his feet. He’ll be our captain without the armband this season.

Lee Wallace – 5

Possibly a bit of a harsh rating for the skipper as he worked his backside off up and down the left flank, but end product was woeful at the best of times. Wallace lacks match sharpness since his stomach injury; hopefully with another 90 minutes under his belt against Sheffield Wednesdsy we’ll begin to see his real ability.

Daniel Candeias – 7

His best performance yet. A constant threat on the right with some wicked deliveries into the box. Candeias has pace to burn and will play a big part in Caixinha’s team if he keeps up that form.

Ryan Jack – 7

Broke up play well and was industrious in possession. Jack’s hard work will be key for guys like Kranjcar and Dorrans to get forward this season.

Graham Dorrans – 7

Steady home debut. An unjust early booking may have limited his game but he got forward well and never looked troubled. An outstanding tackle on the edge of the box in the second half.

Niko Kranjcar – 9

Magnificent bastard. Kranjcar looks to have hit the ground running this season compared to last. Another majestic display in the middle of the park for the Gers and an absolute worldy of a free kick into the bargain. He needs to take this form into our competitive campaign.

Kenny Miller – 5

Not one of Miller’s best performances and failed to make any real contribution in the match.

Eduardo Herrera – 6

Worked tirelessly throughout but no end product. On first impressions Herrera will be a handful for centre backs with his bullish style. Will improve with game-time.

Alfredo Morelos – 5

Came on and pestered the Marseille defence. A great strike midway through the second half but should have scored with the follow-up. One goal should open the floodgates.

Carlos Pena – 1

Came on for the last 15 minutes, but not sure if he touched the ball. Bizarre that he didn’t get more time on the pitch.

Jason Holt – 2

Late sub, worked hard.

Josh Windass – 2

Subbed onto the left flank. Made no impact, and may struggle for a place in Caixinha’s side this season.

Danny Wilson – 4

First appearance in 11 weeks for Wilson and put in a steady performance. Will have to work hard to keep Cardoso and Alves out the team.

Dalcio – 1

Brought on late in the game with no time to make any impact. Doubtful he’ll be a key asset for Rangers this season.
