After a difficult start to the season, Rangers have gotten their season back on track with a 4-0 thrashing of Dundee last week. Steven Gerrard’s men will now begin their Europa League group stage with an away game against Villarreal tonight.
While the match looks tough on paper, Rangers fans will certainly be up for the game as it would be their first taste of European football outside of qualifiers for more than 6 years.
The Gers have their work cut out to qualify for the next stage as Spartak Moscow are also part of what looks like one of the toughest groups in the competition. Rangers fans are thus determined to enjoy their involvement in the competition for as long as it lasts, and their enthusiasm was in full display before the game against Villarreal with fans lighting up the street with flares.

Let’s just say if Steven Gerrard’s men show the same effort on the field today that their fans have off it, they certainly have a chance of getting something from the game.
