Rangers’ latest European triumph last night proved one absolute truth above any other – Rangers are too good for the Europa League, and while they might not win Europe’s second best competition, this team and this manager clearly belong in the Promised Land of the Champions League.

In the last three seasons Steve Gerrard’s Rangers have overcome:

The best of Turkey in Galatasary.

The best of Poland in Legia Warsaw.

The best of Portugal in Porto and Braga while coming ridiculously close to besting Benfica.

The best of Holland in Feyenoord and Willem II.

The best of Belgium in Antwerp and Liege.

The best of Austria in Rapid Wien.

In short, Rangers have overcome a lot of the best sides in the ‘second tier’ nations like Holland, Belgium, Portugal and Turkey, which is fantastic ground work to take on the best of the serious Champions League nations like Germany, France, England and Italy.

Beating the best of the ‘second tier’ in Europe proves just where Stevie’s Rangers are, and regardless of what happens v Slavia Prague, the past three seasons proves the level of competition Rangers are capable of handling.

This is a remarkable European side Steven Gerrard has built, and he and his side are a real threat now to anyone in the Europa League.
