Rangers fans react on Twitter to Filip Helander’s display

A number of Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to laud Filip Helander’s performance as the Gers booked their place in the Europa League group-stages on another famous night at Ibrox.

It appeared that Steven Gerrard’s side had been handed an incredibly difficult tie. And the fans’ nerves would not have been helped by the Light Blues going into half-time still level at 0-0 with Galatasaray.

However, Rangers turned on the style in the second-half. Scott Arfield broke the deadlock after a brilliantly-worked move. And James Tavernier doubled the lead just before the hour.

The timing of the goals was particularly crucial as they came just after a massive moment involving Helander.

He made an outstanding challenge to deny Sofiane Feghouli two minutes before Arfield swept the ball home with the outside of his foot.

Helander has not always escaped criticism in the past. But there is no question that he has produced a number of colossal performances when Rangers have really needed him and Connor Goldson to step up.

‘Phenomenal tonight’

Unsurprisingly therefore, plenty of fans took to Twitter to laud the Swede. Many felt that it was one of his best displays for the Gers. And they suggested that he is quickly becoming a player that Gerrard cannot afford to leave out.

Here is how some of the fans reacted to Helander’s performance in the win…
