A stunning new UEFA rule could massively impact Rangers in July during the CL qualifiers should it pass in time for next season’s competition to begin.

Europe’s governing body have dramatically voted in favour of ditching the away goals rule, which is a seismic change for modern football with it being 56 years in force, and this could hugely alter tactical approach in football, in two-legged ties.

Rangers of course, hopefully, have two of these such fixtures this summer to get to the CL proper, and if this vote is enforced by the time the CL qualifiers begin, it will stunningly alter the value of goals scored on foreign shores.

Indeed, part of the glory of these qualifiers and KO two-legged matches is the ‘worth its weight in gold’ idea of scoring a goal on the away ground, a massive goal more valuable than those scored on home turf.

And that adds such a dynamic and such excitement to these ties that removing the rule has not gone down well with a tonne of football people in the game.

It basically changes everything.

Nothing quite like a governing body with its finger on the pulse hmmm?
