Everyone in Rangers land knows the result from Steven Gerrard’s first competitive match in charge and we go into the second leg with the advantage and plenty of hope when it comes to progressing through to the Qualifying Second Round of the Europa League this year and going at least one step further than last season.

I don’t need to repeat game details but building on a mixed performance and a mixed reaction from fans to the showing across the 90 minutes, the Official Rangers Twitter Feed asked a very simple question following the game.

I’m not sure who will agree, or who will disagree but with a couple of hundred responses to the question on social media, two men, in particular, seemed to stand out in the minds of the fans for the coveted Man of the Match Award.

Other players obviously featured as few MotM polls are ever unanimous and exclusive and there was the usual offering of a player who was clearly below par.

Connor Goldson and debutant Glenn Middleton seriously stood out though and with good reason, I would think. With a couple of hundred responses at the time of typing, I actually think the young midfielder just edges it to be honest.

There were plenty more comments than I’ve copied in below.

  • Although Goldson grew into the game and looked good overall. In the first half and in the second he had some errant passes and bad touches. Those are ok at this stage of the season, but if they are in his game at pittodrie, we might be regretting not landing Jake Cooper. Glenn Middleton is awesome and MUST start now, taking Windass place. Rudden must start instead of Morellos. Alfredo did not score, therefore he lost his opportunity. If the young players are to push the first team out the way the manager has to let it happen. WATP

    • You forgive those surely as pre-season. I still think it’s ridiculous sides are expected to be competitive at this time of year when every league in the main is now bleating about fatigue and too many games being played. You can’t have it both ways and expect players to be at their best. Cooper speculation is ongoing so that one’s not dead yet based on the last things I read. We won’t title yet, but compared to last season I’d be surprised if we blow second…it’s another step.
