With Borna Barisic absent due to his wife expecting to give birth, Ridvan Yilmaz came in to make his first start in the Rangers side since October, with Gers fans eager to see their £5 million full back in action after a long injury lay off.
It was on the young Turkish internationalist’s side where Rangers were undone after 2 minutes however, as Motherwell took a shock early lead. The much sought after Max Johnston latched on to the ball over the top before firing a pin point ball across the box for Kevin Van Veen to tap home.
After 2o minutes of probing from the visitors they eventually got on level terms through a trademark James Tavernier free kick.
Callum Slattery picked up a yellow card for his foul on John Lundstram just outside the area, allowing the captain scope to bend his effort into the bottom corner for his 98th goal in a Rangers jersey.
