Rangers secured a battling 0-0 draw in the first-leg of their Europa League play-off game against Legia Warsaw last night.
On another night the Gers might have won but Steven Gerrard’s team will return to Ibrox next weekend with the scores level.
Last season the Light Blues were eliminated from the group stages of the competition. They came up short in a group featuring Villarreal, Rapid Vienna and Spartak Moscow.
Gerrard will have ambitions of going at least one step further than last season, although right now the immediate priority is to defeat Warsaw in the return leg next week.
Given the squad that has been assembled at the club, there is nothing to fear.
The Teddy Bears should go into next week’s game confident they can progress.
Following last night’s game, James Tavernier took to Twitter to offer his thoughts on the contest.
He felt the game was difficult but the captain was delighted with the backing his team had received:
A tough game tonight but pleased to come away with a clean sheet.. Lots of work to been done next Thursday but we are more than capable to get the result we need! 🙌🏽 A huge thanks to our travelling fans for your amazing support 🇬🇧 Safe travels back.. Full focus on Sunday now 👊🏽 pic.twitter.com/DtZhjYkxt7

Before Rangers can fully focus on next Thursday, they must overcome St Mirren in the Premiership.
Tavernier is a vastly popular figure at Ibrox and his latest rallying cry has gone down well with supporters.
The 27-year-old is a beast of a right-back when it comes to contributing to goals. Last season, he scored 17 and registered 20 assists, with five assists already chalked up for the current campaign.
Rangers will hope their club captain can continue to be a mainstay in the team and carry on his impressive record with goals and assists.
