Giovanni van Bronckhorst says there will "definitely" be some changes to the Rangers team as he takes charge for the first time against Sparta Prague.

The Dutchman watched from the stand as Rangers lost to Hibernian in Sunday's Scottish League Cup semi-final.
Victory by a margin of two goals or more on Thursday would secure the Ibrox side a place in the Europa League knockout rounds.

"We were not happy with the result or the goals conceded," said the manager.
"We have to be much more focused and compact in the defensive side of the match. It is important in Europe to be solid at the back.
"You will see a team in a system I like to play and how I feel is best to play against Prague. You will definitely see some changes."
Report akabula November 24, 2021 9:36 PM GMT
He's obviously going to make changes in defence but I think Moerlos will be lucky to make the bench.

2-0 and through to the knock-out stages for the 3rd season running.

Ally summed the performance up well. Brilliant at times, average in part and poor in the latter stages.

3 great goals in that 3-1 victory over Livingston.
1 - Taverniers ball to Arfield then the control and finish were superb, goal of the season contender.
2 - Hagis pinpoint crossfield pass to Kent who controlled instantly before passing to Morelos who slipped the ball to Aribo who hit a curler into the top right corner giving the keeper no chance.
3 - Great leap by Sakala to bullet a header into the back of the net.
A fantastic overall performance.

@ G Hall
If the interest in the game takes a dip down south then the TV companies will look for something to give the game a boost.
If they think that the Old Firm is the answer then they'll put pressure on the football authorities to admit them to the EPL.
Until then we'll remain as we are with the odd punching above our weight as in Seville and Manchester.

Rangers offering extended and improved contracts to both Joe Aribo and Connor Goldston.
Looks like both will rundown their contracts and leave at the end of the season.
Rangers will in that case try to sell in the January window.
Not too bothered at Aribo going as we have plenty of cover but Goldston will need to be replaced.

0-0 at HT and no complaints but Rangers stepped up in the second half and piled on the pressure.
A deserved victory in the end thanks to a stonewaller of a penalty, courtesy of the headless chicken that is Porteous, which Roofe expertly despatched into the back of the net.
