PSV crashed out of the Champions League after producing a disappointing performance to lose to Rangers.

Here’s how we think every player performed…

Walter Benitez, 5 – Made one really good save, but was again at fault for the Rangers goal. Ramalho should’ve done better in controlling his pass, but the pass never should have been made in the first place.

Jordan Teze, 7 – Was solid at the back and one of the few PSV players who was a threat going forward, with the Dutchman creating two chances with excellent crosses.

Andre Ramalho, 4 – Made the error that lost his side the tie, with his heavy touch in his own box leading to the Rangers goal. An enormously costly mistake.

Armando Obispo, 6 – Gave the ball away a number of times and missed a chance late on, but was relatively solid defensively.

Phillip Max, 5 – Got the ball in dangerous positions on the left but couldn’t take advantage. He’s not proving to be a capable replacement for Mauro Junior.

Ibrahim Sangare, 5 – Wasn’t his usual dominant self, struggling to make his mark in midfield.

Erick Gutierrez, 5 – Was largely invisible for the 60 minutes that he was on. You can’t help but think PSV would have been better off with Veerman playing further back in his place.

Joey Veerman, 6 – Did his best to get drag his team through but playing as a number 10, his hands were largely tied. He made some good passes when playing deeper later on.

Ismael Saibari, 6 – Was one of PSV’s only dangerous players going forward, creating some chances with some lovely passes.

Luuk de Jong, 5 – Missed two relatively big chances in the first half after making great runs before being forced off with an injury. How poor his team were without him shows how important he is.

Cody Gakpo, 4 – A really, really poor showing. He had PSV’s two biggest chances and failed to convert them both, and couldn’t create any for his team-mates. Manchester United may be having second thoughts about signing him now.


Xavi Simons, 8 – PSV’s best player by a long way when he came on. With his excellent dribbling, he was the one man constantly causing Rangers problems. You have to wonder why he didn’t start.

Guus Til, 5 – Played 30 minutes but did next to nothing in that time, having just 14 touches. Far too often does he go missing.

Carlos Vinicius, N/A – Didn’t play long enough to get a rating.

Marco van Ginkel, N/A – Didn’t play long enough to get a rating.
