Rangers Player Stats, from goals to TSR

written by – Rangers Report

As you know, the season has reached the quarter mark & given the extra week off, it seemed like an opportune time to share individual player stats for Rangers.  Given the volume of statistics that will be provided, I will refrain from adding commentary, however please feel free to share your observations.  The extra pairs of eyes on these numbers may bring about some fresh analysis.

It should be noted that I have players stats for each player who has played so far in the Scottish Championship & will publish another post soon that looks at the entire league.

Only league stats are included.

Total Shots Ratio

This stat is usually used to measure the ratio of total shots that a team takes in a match.  For example, if Rangers take 15 shots & their opponent takes five – then they had a TSR of 0.75 (15/20).  Throughout the season, I have measured how many shots Rangers take & give up when each player is on the pitch.  Andy Halliday & Danny Wilson have played every minute so their 0.74 TSR represents Rangers’ total for the season.
