The Rangers starting XI for the crucial FC Midtjylland Europa League qualifier has been announced and the fans aren’t sure what to think.
Steven Gerrard’s men travel to Denmark tonight for the first leg of the penultimate knockout phase before the Europa League group stages. The Gers know that should they progress through the two-legged affair, they’ll face either of Legia Warsaw or Atromitos in the next round.
The headline news from the selection is the return of Jon Flanagan, who’ll get his first minutes of the season at left-back.
He takes the place of Borna Barisi,c who was poor in the last round of qualifying, according to the fans themselves. Gerrard also starts with Alfredo Morelos up top after there had been speculation of a bid from West Brom earlier today, per The Daily Record.
The fans are particularly pleased to see Flanagan back in the line-up, particularly if it means not seeing Barisic.
Here are the best fan reactions to Gerrard’s line-up for the crunch tie on Twitter:
Flanagan is a class choice better than Barisic?

No Davis is weird

Flanagan is in due to the physical side of the Danes.
Surprised Davis is not starting though as he’s our most experienced player.
C’mon Rangers. Let’s do this.
