Worked well alongside Souttar and didnt give a lot away. 7
A typical Sunday stroll for the captain who never gave Oliver Burke a sniff. 7
Struggled against the pace of Johnston but improved as the first half wore on. Had a tough battle with Karamoko Dembele after the break. 6
Took the game by the scruff of the neck and put his body on the line a few times. 7
The youngster played just behind Wighton but looked a little lost at times when up against the physical Olivier Ntcham. 6
The Englishmans afternoon ended after just 12 minutes when he was forced off from the field of play. 3
Wasnt able to influence the game as much as he would have liked. A quiet afternoon. 5
Sumptuous finish from the winger and always looked a threat, particularly in the first half. 7
Did well in forcing Bain into a mistake that led to the equaliser and put in a decent shift despite being isolated at times. 7
Ran his socks off after replacing Lee and always showed a willingness to close the opposition down. 6
Final match of a long career and was rewarded with the captaincy after replacing Souttar. 4
Kept Scott Sinclair relatively quiet and forced a save from Bain. 5
