It was a historic night for Rangers on Thursday as they took on Rapid Vienna at Ibrox in what was their first European group stage home tie in more than six years. After putting up an impressive display on matchday one away at Villarreal and earning a point for their efforts, the Gers came into this game as favorites.

Steven Gerrard’s men suffered an early set-back when they went 1-0 down in the 43rd minute after forward Veton Berisha struck for the Austrian side. However, they mounted a fantastic comeback to outclass their opponents 3-1 courtesy of a double from Alfredo Morelos and a penalty from James Tavernier.

When Rangers got their third goal of the game in the 90th minute, the players and fans certainly knew that they had the game won. It is very rare to see players celebrating before the final whistle as the game can change pretty quickly. However, Thursday night at the Ibrox was an exception as the players and fans were absolutely over the moon with the result.

Midfielder Andy Halliday, who came on as late substitute was caught on camera celebrating the historic win with one of his teammates on the pitch, with the final whistle yet to be blown. Check out the moment below:

The result put Rangers in a commanding position in their group. Rangers fans will certainly be hoping they can go deep into this year’s Europa League as they have been deprived of European football for quite a long time.
