Rangers fans are loving the starting XI for their Europa League tie against Progres Niederkorn tonight.
Steven Gerrard has named a strong line-up as he aims to see off the side from Luxembourg, with Jermain Defoe preferred up-front to Alfredo Morelos.
The first leg was slightly disappointing for the Gers, with a 2-0 victory feeling underwhelming after dominating the game. Goals from Sheyi Ojo and Joe Aribo could’ve been added to by captain James Tavernier, but his penalty clipped the post at Ibrox and wasn’t followed up.
Should Gerrard’s men get past Progres, a feat the club couldn’t achieve back in 2017, then they already know the identity of their third-round opponents. The victors of the tie will face Danish Cup winners FC Midtjylland in what could be a tricky tie for the Light Blues.
Gerrard would hope to at least replicate last season’s Europa League group-stage exit in his second season in charge of the Gers and the fans are getting excited after his latest team announcement.
