Ofir Marciano - 8

His handling was tested a number of times in the first half but he stayed steady. Couldn't do anything about the goal and made a couple of strong saves late in the game.

Go forward in support early in the match but was restricted to defensive duties when Rangers started to dominate. Out of position for the goal.

Darren McGregor - 6

Struggled a bit with Jermain Defoe's movement though did manage to get a couple of key tackles. Another out of position at the opener.

Paul Hanlon - 6

Slightly better performance than his centre-back partner but another who was troubled by the movement of Defoe.

Lewis Stevenson - 7

Made a couple of key tackles and interceptions and helped launch a couple of counter attacks early. Steady as always.

Mark Milligan - 5

Made a key intervention shortly before the opener and had another in the second period. On the whole, though, he was sloppy with his passing and was often overrun.

Stevie Mallan - 7

Decent enough performance from the midfielder who was crisp with his passing and energetic in the centre of the park.

Daryl Horgan - 5

Was bright in the early going with a few crossing opportunities, though he failed to pick out a Hibs man with any of those. Dropped out of the game completely after that.

Ryan Gauld - 5

Started brightly and played a role in a few promising attacks early. His lack of match sharpness soon became evident though and he had a very poor second half prior to his substitution.

Stephane Omeonga - 6

Looked lost on the left of midfield. Improved after the substitutes were made and was more comfortable back in the centre.

Marc McNulty - 5

Didn't get a whole lot of support but his touch was absent for the most part and, as a result, struggled to hold the ball up.

Subs

Thomas Agyepong - 7 - Was dangerous after coming on as sub, including firing a shot wide and setting up a chance for Fraser Murray.

Florian Kamberi - 6 - Was too heavy with a cross for McNulty and missed a great chance to equalise. Still, Hibs were more dangerous after his introduction.

Fraser Murray - 6 - Crossed for Kamberi's chance and had another opportunity himself. Lively.
