Rangers player ratings gallery - the season so far as four score 4/10 and two earn 8/10s

As we enter the first international break of 2023, our Rangers reporter ranks every player out of 10 for their contribution so far this season.

It has been a mixed season for Rangers fans as their team continue to try to make inroads into rivals Celtic’s nine-point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.

The season began on a positive note by securing Champions League football for the first time in 12 years via the Europa League play-offs but their European campaign ended in humiliation after claiming the unwanted tag of becoming the ‘worst ever’ team to compete in the group stage of the competition.

Performances fell below the standards previously set by previous boss Steven Gerrard and Dutchman Giovanni van Bronckhorst eventually paid the price back in November. His replacement, Michael Beale, has tranformed the club’s fortunes by winning 15 of his first 15 matches in charge of the club.

However, defeat to Celtic in the Viaplay Cup final at Hampden Park last month proved a bitter pill to swallow for the Englishman and their rivals relentless domestic form has ensured Rangers have failed to make a dent into the gap at the league summit.
