Motherwell fans can be proud of battling performance against Rangers

Take nothing away from Motherwell, they were superb in Govan. Stephen Robinson’s switch from a four at the back formation to three worked wonders and caught Rangers by surprise.

Still, the Steelmen showed great commitment and desire in this match. Collectively they were brilliant, with individual performances from Bevis Mugabi, Chris Long and Liam Donnelly carrying the team forward.

Playing like this, Motherwell will better most teams in the Premiership. The biggest thing for the Northern Irish Well boss will be to work out a way to get this type of performance consistently now.

Both Motherwell and Rangers played out a fascinating spectacle in Govan and Motherwell more than matched their opponents.
