JON McLAUGHLIN: Preferred to Allan McGregor this afternoon, with McGregor set to return for the trip to Malmo on Tuesday. A virtual spectator, could’ve sat in the Copland Road Stand and nobody would’ve noticed. Another clean sheet to add to his collection. Used the ball well. 6

JAMES TAVERNIER: Outstanding delivery to set up Hagi for the opening goal on seven minutes and clock up assist number one for the season with a pinpoint free kick. He delivered another sublime free kick from the opposite side on 33 minutes but there were no takers. Assist number two followed on 78 minutes when his headed knock down fell into the path of Wright who fired home. 8

CALVIN BASSEY: Carried his pre-season form into the SPFL opener with another solid display. Always willing to get forward, had a powerful run on 19 minutes after neat interplay with Hagi, also linked up well with Aribo and Kent at times. Enjoyed him trying to gee up the crowd on 32 minutes, final delivery needs a bit of work but understandable given his inexperience. 7

CONNOR GOLDSON: Like McLaughlin, he breezed through the game, never challenged in all honesty. 6

LEON BALOGUN: See Goldson. 6

STEVEN DAVIS: Tremendous industry and work rate as ever. Found himself with plenty of space to begin probes forward but not really tested. A canter for the Northern Irishman. 7

GLEN KAMARA: Alongside Davis, strolled through the game with ease. Never really under any real pressure or duress from the Livingston midfield. No idea how he blazed over in stoppage time when he was found at the far post by Lundstram but fired wide with an outstretched leg. 7

JOE ARIBO: Almost netted Rangers' second on nine minutes but failed to catch his shot cleanly. Great skill and pass into Sakala on the half hour mark but couldn’t impact the game as much as he would’ve liked. Has missed a few training sessions of late which showed at times and was a tad rusty with one or two passes going astray. Will have benefited from the time on the pitch though as he looks to get sharper, replaced by John Lundstram. 6

IANIS HAGI: Fantastic control, composure and execution to rifle Rangers in front on eight minutes. Took a sore one from a wild challenge from Lewis on 13 minutes and had to hobble off 17 minutes later as a result. Hopefully, it’s not too serious as he looked in the mood from the off. 7

RYAN KENT: Sublime back heel on 27 minutes around the halfway line that had the 23,000 inside Ibrox purring. Always looked menacing and had Livingston on strings at times. Lovely chest down to Wright on the edge of the area but he blazed over. Perhaps should've scored on 58 minutes but shot with his instep from the edge of the area was saved. 7

FASHION SAKALA: Exquisite touch and ball to release Kent on 11 minutes, struggled to impose himself on the game until first half stoppage time when he burst forward down the left-hand side before drilling in a cross. Quiet display in the main in the second half until he was replaced by Roofe. 6


SCOTT WRIGHT: Replaced the injured Hagi on 30 minutes, should’ve done better when released by Aribo down the right flank on 37 minutes but took a heavy touch. Volleyed over from the edge of the area from a lovely Kent chest lay-off and forced a save from a decent header before he doubled Rangers advantage on 78 minutes. It was a world-class finish as he found the corner on the half-volley from a narrow angle. He has given the manager something to think about ahead of Tuesday. 8

JOHN LUNDSTRAM: Replaced Aribo in the 64th minute. Great vision and pass towards Roofe in the 73rd minute but the forward was slightly offside. Always moving and showing for a pass, you can tell he’s played in the English Premier League for the last two seasons. A class act. 7

KEMAR ROOFE: Replaced Sakala in the 71st minute. Was furious with Bassey on 83 minutes when he failed to find him with a cross. Managed to get himself on the scoresheet in the 90th minute when he capitalised on poor Livingston defending to fire home from just a few yards out displaying great strikers' instinct. 7
