Loads of Rangers fans have been reacting to a brilliant fitness update from Steven Gerrard, and let’s just say they’re feeling confident about the clash with Maribor.
Rangers travel to Slovenia tonight to take on Maribor, and the club’s fitness update has fans already booking their spot in the next round.
The Gers have got off to a fantastic start to life under Gerrard, thanks in no small part to the improvements to the spine of the team.
Nikola Katic and Connor Goldson have formed a brilliant partnership in defence, and the additions of Lassana Coulibaly and Scott Arfield in the midfield engine room have made a huge difference.

Fans were concerned that all three of Coulibaly, Arfield and Ryan Jack could miss the trip to Slovenia, but Gerrard’s comments combined with the club’s comments on Twitter seem to imply they are all available for selection.
Jack returned to full training this week, Coulibaly’s withdrawal from the St Mirren game was just for a rest, and Arfield is also nearing full fitness after his knee problem, according to the boss.
The club Twitter account has also eased worries about the midfield injury crisis, telling fans that they have all travelled for the match.
Fans are now heaping praise on the trio, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions to the fitness update down below…
Those 3 bang in the middle are our best option in my opinion 👍🏻
