Rangers player ratings v Lyon: Bassey disappoints, Lundstram shines

Glen Kamara and John Lundstram had fantastic outings for Rangers as they drew 1-1 against Lyon on Thursday night in the Europa League.

Nathan Patterson, who was given a chance to prove his worth to Giovanni van Bronckhorst, also put in a decent performance, although he had moments where he showed why he’s not the first choice yet.

It was a game to forget for Bassey who scored an own goal and did not look confident throughout.

Here are the Rangers player ratings from the draw:

Jon McLaughlin 6

Made a crucial save at the end that ensured his side did not lose the game. However, there were times where it felt like the players ahead of him weren’t sure what to do.

Nathan Patterson 5

Started strongly, but tailed on as the game progressed. Made a few silly errors in the second half and also conceded a free kick deep into his own half that saw him get a yellow card.

Connor Goldson 6

Was tidy with his passes and won of his duels on the ground. Aerially he was found wanting, but apart from that, not too much to fault with his performance.

Calvin Bassey 4

The 21-year-old found himself involved in a lot of the play but unfortunately scored an own goal that stopped his side from winning. He did appear nervy on a few occasions, most notably in the last ten minutes when he was dallying while playing out from the back.

Borna Barisic 7

Spent most of his time in his own half, defending the likes of Rayan Cherki and Leo Dubois. However, he did not let that faze him and continued performing how he normally would.

John Lundstram 8

His hard tackling was put to good use and so was his ability to find a long pass. Whenever the Gers attackers made runs into space, Lundstram’s pass found them more often than it didn’t.

Glen Kamara 7

Came off at half-time so missed being the Man of the Match. However, he was one of if not the best player on the pitch. Completed 90 per cent of his passes and played two key passes that split apart the Lyon defence as well.

Scott Wright 7

A good game for the right-winger and he grabbed a decent European goal to show for his exploits. If he was fighting for his place in the team, he’s done enough to stake a claim.

Ianis Hagi 6

Not the best of games from the Gers attacker as he found himself caught in too many different places trying to make a telling impact.

Ryan Kent 6

Failed to take the game to the opposition like he’s used to doing in the Scottish Premier League. Was off with some of his dribbles and paid the price on a few occasions.

Kemar Roofe 5

Struggled to be impactful in the build-up play or in front of goal. Did not find the right spaces to have a go at Lyon and has every reason to be disappointed with this game.


Juninho Bacuna 5

Scott Arfield 6

Joe Aribo 6
