Rangers destroy old foes Aberdeen with wonderful display of attacking football at Ibrox. Who was your Man of the Match?

Allan McGregor

Not convinced the keeper had one save to make as Aberdeen completely failed to offer any attacking threat. 7
James Tavernier
James Tavernier
The skipper controlled the right side of the pitch and scored to fine penalties after missing his last two. A much welcome return to form! 9
Connor Goldson
Connor Goldson
Again starting as his manager's first choice centre-back, the big Englishman strolled through the game and used the ball sensibly. Should have scored from free header. 7
Niko Katic
Niko Katic
Most fans were pleased to see the Croatian u21 international back in the side and he showed his usual physical qualities as he dominated any Aberdeen attackers. 8
Borna Barisic
Borna Barisic
Seems to be playing with newly found confidence and offers an excellent balance to the side. Display typified with his excellent outswinging cross for Morelos header. 8
Ryan Jack

Another top class performance from a player that has offered fantastic consistency this season. Positioning and use of the ball all over the park are key to how well we play. 9
Steven Davis
Steven Davis
Has stuggled to affect recent games across the whole 90mins but did so in splendid fashion yesterday. He sat and pinged balls about the pitch as if it was a kick-about with his kids at the local park. When he plays the game like this he’s a joy to watch. Gersnet's Man of the Match 9
Scott Arfield
Scott Arfield
Was deployed in similar deeper role against Livingston in last Ibrox league match but was much more effective yesterday and involved in much better passages of play where his touch was what we're used to. 8
Greg Stewart
Greg Stewart
Perhaps a surprise starter just behind Morelos, Stewart was a constant threat throughout and only criticism was that he should have scored more. Clearly enjoyed his day though and did grab crucial second goal. 9
Sheyi Ojo
Sheyi Ojo
Not as involved as others in the game but nevertheless found space and used the ball well for the most part. Needs to work on his finishing. 7
Alfredo Morelos
Alfredo Morelos
What can we say that already hasn't been? Quite simply the best striker in Scotland and showed his class throughout again yesterday. 9

The Englishman will be 37 at the start of next week but his footballing brain means he still has a yard on most defenders. Scored a sensational lob when everyone else was still deciding to react. 8
Brandon Barker
Brandon Barker
Back in the side after a toe injury, was unable to get on the ball as much as other players but did nothing wrong. 5
George Edmundson
George Edmundson
Got the last 15mins in a holding role and showed up well, breaking up the play and using the ball effectively. Excited to see more of him. 7
