We played infinitely better than I expected, and we had one seriously gilt edged chance which Burke unfortunately blew. He'll be hurting like ****, but we shouldn't hold it against him.
After the 15 minute opening period of the second half in which we dominated and should have scored, the game evened out again.
We've gained a point on Hearts, but 2nd spot is back in their hands which is a huge disappointment.

My View on Rangers:

Ron: Dealt with everything extremely well indeed, and made a lot of good saves. Some of his distribution was lacking though.

Rod: Some massive challenges and great positional sense.

Soti: Made a few good tackles but bumbled through the 90 minutes.

Smith: Got forward all the time and defended solidly.

Hutton: Was a different player today. did well at the back and sprinted forward with purpose.

Hemdani: Read the game superbly and passed the ball well.

Rae: Grafted well and worked hard.

Burke: Will be kicking himself over his missed chance, but he was subject to a lot of rough treatment and just got on with it. Should have been protected more.

Prso: Didn't have a prominent first half but caused some serious problems in the second.

Buffel: Looked dangerous at times but more often than not was hounded out.

Boyd: Took his 'goal' well but didn't really have an impact on the match.

Hemdani looked very assured and composed, something which no doubt had an effect on the lads around him, and that was good to see. He picked out nice, easy passes, did his job well and without fuss.

Gavin Rae played real well all things considers, first start in 2 years is it, he can only improve with match fitness.

It was training ground incident that saw Ashikodi threaten a team-mate with a knife.
