Rangers have progressed in the Scottish League Cup after a 3-1 victory away to Kilmarnock at Rugby Park on Sunday afternoon.
In what could have been a tricky encounter, Steven Gerrard’s men produced an excellent battling performance to emerge as winners thanks to a hat-trick from Colombian striker Alfredo Morelos.
The 22-year-old was in lethal form and rightly drew plenty of plaudits for his first hat-trick in Rangers colours, but it was another star that many fans were in awe of – Scott Arfield.
The midfielder was excellent throughout and showed exactly why he was one of the club’s first signings this summer.
He was creative force and had a big hand in the third Rangers goal of the afternoon that made everything comfortable late on.
Many named him their man of the match, despite Morelos’ outstanding triple.
These fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts…

Some of the football from Arfield and Halliday is downright gorgeous. Because it's clinically effective.
