THE BIGGER PICTURE: Tillman has been fantastic for Rangers this season, scoring 10 goals in league play, one in the domestic cup and one in Champions League qualifying. However, the club still entered Saturday nine points behind rivals Celtic.

Tillman joined Rangers in July on a season-long loan from Bayern Munich, and the Scottish giants are expected to take up their option to buy the 20-year-old star at the end of the season.

WHAT NEXT FOR RANGERS? Up next for Rangers is a visit to their eternal rivals, as Tillman and Co. will face off with Celtic on April 8.
