Rangers sneak into the semi-finals of the Betfred Cup with an unconvincing performance. Who was your Man of the Match?

Allan McGregor

Despite Livingston having good periods of play, the 'Gers keeper didn't have that much to do but was competent enough in the main. 7
James Tavernier
James Tavernier
Another mediocre display from the skipper. Use of the ball was poor, as was his touch and positioning at times. On a poor run of form. 6
Connor Goldson
Connor Goldson
Lack of pace cost him a booking in the first half but he improved after the break and won most of his contests despite being on a yellow. 6
Filip Helander

Niko Katic was rotated out after struggling against Lyndon Dykes and big Swede faired no better though improved later in the game. A learning experience is perhaps being kind. 5
Borna Barisic

One of few Rangers players to say they did their job but was perhaps too passive going forward. With non-functioning midfield last night that was understandable. 7
Ryan Jack
Ryan Jack
Had a long and physical battle with Marvin Bartley so was unable to affect the game as much as he'd have liked. Lucky not to be booked for petty kick out on Livi captain. 6
Glen Kamara
Glen Kamara
Actually started the game quite well, including deflected goal, but thereafter was bullied too often on the ball and conceded possession too often. 5
Joe Aribo
Joe Aribo
Taken off early after dreadful elbow from home defender but wasn't in the game regardless. 5
Scott Arfield
Scott Arfield
Another player who hasn't really got going this season and this was another match where he never really looked comfortable. 5
Sheyi Ojo
Sheyi Ojo
An incredible frustrating player. Lots of pace and skill on the ball but if there's a wrong decision to be made, nine times out of ten, he'll make it. 5
Alfredo Morelos
Alfredo Morelos
Continually runs opposition defences ragged across all our games. Led the line very well but let down by under-performing colleagues. Looked knackered as game petered out. Gersnet's Man of the Match 7

Substitutes

Steven Davis

Perhaps came on quicker than he expected last night due to Aribo injured and it took him until the hour mark to really settle into the game. Like others, far too slack on the ball, and often played too deep as well which caused us issues in midfield. 6
Andy King
Andy King
Leicester City loanee looked sprightly as late sub and his freshness will need to be used after such a jaded team performance. 5
