The Ibrox side were made to pay for missing several golden opportunities at Hampden this afternoon, with Alfredo Morelos spurning the best of them, including a 64th minute penalty.

After the full-time whistle, an obviously dejected Tavernier spoke to Rangers TV, and attempted to try and salvage some positives from an otherwise crushing defeat:
