James Tavernier and Alfredo Morelos top Rangers Fifa 21 ratings

James Tavernier and Alfredo Morelos have topped the Rangers player ratings on FIFA 21.

The new game was officially released on Friday, so Tavernier and El Bufalo will have bragging rights on the training ground when the squad regroups following the international break.

The right-back and the striker were both given ratings of 75, while Ryan Jack, Allan McGregor and Jermain Defoe are all rated at 74.

Next come Borna Barisic, Ianis Hagi and Leon Balogun on 73, while Steven Davis, Connor Goldson, Ryan Kent, Kemar Roofe, Cedric Itten and Filip Helander are each 72.

Injured duo Joe Aribo and Niko Katic have to settle for 70, while Glen Kamara just misses out on the 70 club with a rating of 69.

With 55, the lowest-ranked player in the first-team squad is goalkeeper, Andy Firth, who has only made one competitive appearance since joining the Gers in January 2019.

Scott Arfield (71), Jordan Jones (71), Jon McLaughlin (68), Greg Stewart (68), Brandon Barker (67), George Edmundson (66), Glenn Middleton (64), Calvin Bassey (62) and Jamie Barjonas (57) complete the 27-player squad list.

Celtic’s Callum McGregor and Shane Duffy (77) are the highest-rated Premiership players in the game.

Jermain Defoe is one of the most highly-rated Rangers players on FIFA 21 but earlier this week, he missed out on the extended squad for the Europa League group stages. Over on our Rangers News YouTube channel, we debated whether or not that was the right call.
