Rangers are just one step away from sealing their spot in their first ever Europa League quarter-final when they travel to Serbia this week.
Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side take on Red Star Belgrade boasting a 3-0 lead from their first-leg clash at Ibrox earlier this month.
James Tavernier’s penalty and goals from Alfredo Morelos and Leon Balogun put the Gers in a commanding spot.
But the scoreline could have been so different as the Serbian side had three goals disallowed for offside and also a spot-kick of their own saved.

Red Star Belgrade v Rangers: What has been said?
“We have to be mentally and tactically prepared,” said boss Van Bronckhorst.
“We know we are going to a place with a hostile atmosphere; this is something we need to cope with, with our experienced team. We need to enjoy playing in this atmosphere.
“Obviously when you play so many games in Europe you will have players one yellow card away from suspension, but this won’t impact our team selection.
