Whilst there was plenty that could have been improved on Sunday, the performance of the players in an attacking sense was exciting to watch. There were players involved in numerous goals and assists which made them candidates for man of the match.

The first of those was Alfredo Morelos. His desire to win the game was evident throughout. The composure shown to set up the first goal was impressive, and his finish for the third was well placed. He never gave the Hamilton defence any respite and linked up well with all of the team. If not for the performances of a couple of others, he’d have been given more praise for how he played.

One of those who did take the focus away from Morelos was Jamie Murphy. In the first half, he was involved in all of Rangers goals. The movement for the equaliser was excellent, as was his cutback for the Morelos goal. However, the most impressive of all of his contributions was the assist for Josh Windass. He was involved in the good play in his own half which led to getting Tavernier free on the run. The movement he made meant that he couldn’t easily be picked up, and his backheel into the path of Windass was a moment of real quality. Murphy has split the support in many ways when it comes to how he’s been performing. The first half on Sunday will see many revise their views.

Man of the match overall was Josh Windass. Scoring a hattrick will usually see you win that, but he also offered far more than just goals. He should have had an assist for a great cross in the second half. The runs he was making were timed really well, and often on the blind side of the Hamilton defenders. He was easily found by his teammates, and that was one of the main reasons Rangers were attacking so well.

The quality of the goals will be played down somewhat. Obviously, his first was down to a horrendous goalkeeping error. As mentioned by the commentator, though, he’s had more shots on goal than anyone else in the league. Those are the sort of errors that can draw. The finishes for his second and third, being done on the run as they were, showed a player high in confidence, and also high in ability. He’s now scored 10 league goals, and got 6 assists, putting him level with Morelos in being involved in 16 goals this season. It’s a huge turnaround from the player Rangers thought they had last season.
