Rangers welcomed St Mirren to Ibrox for the latest Premiership clash of the 2018/19 season on Sunday and there was certainly plenty for fans to crow about.

A fantastic debut for Borna Barisic as he showed his performance against us in the Europa League wasn’t a one-off, two goals, Steven Gerrard’s first win in the domestic league, we remain unbeaten – pick out your own highlight.

On social media plenty of Gers fans did and although we must ask ourselves questions about discipline as we went down to ten men for a second league game on the trot, plenty were willing to laud the first team playing squad and the atmosphere and desire Gerrard has instilled in them, for not crumbling when we went down to ten men.

That kind of backbone and strength come the end of the campaign will be worth points on its own.

Barisic wasn’t the only one to come in for praise, Lassana Coulibaly was again a man of the moment for his performances in the middle of the park, and after criticism over pre-season, Alfredo Morelos slammed another goal down the throats of his critics. Even Jon Flanagan came in for praise!

Not a bad day all in I’m sure you’ll agree.

Oh – I almost forgot Connor Goldson – my mistake.

The only question at the moment is how long can we keep this going before an inevitable dip as it always happens in the game. How we react, is what will be important.
