Ibrox View: Rangers player saved the day in key moment v Kilmarnock

Rangers continued their winning run on Sunday afternoon, beating Kilmarnock 1-0 at Rugby Park.

James Tavernier scored from the spot in the first half, which was his 10th of the season in all competition to earn all three points.

The win saw Steven Gerrard’s extend their gap at the top of the table, as Celtic completed last season’s semi-final at Hampden Park.

It didn’t come easy though for the Bears.

Rugby Park isn’t the easiest place to go, with their astroturf pitch a challenge for any side to play decent football on.

Rangers dominated the game, keeping more possession and having 12 more shots on goal compared to the home side [WhoScored].

If it wasn’t for Alan McGregor in the final moments of the game, the Gers will have had to settle for only one point from the trip.

Eamonn Brophy hit a low free-kick, only for the Scottish veteran stopper to keep it out, potentially handing all three points to the away side.

The 38-year-old actually made more saves than his opposite number Danny Rogers, despite facing considerably fewer shots.

Jon McLaughlin started the season well for the Gers and continued their form in terms on clean-sheets, but it appears that McGregor has well and truly cemented his spot in-between the sticks.

McGregor may not be involved majorly in games, but it is moments like these that highlight his importance for Gerrard’s men.
