Rangers finally got their Europa League campaign off to a start following a comfortable 2-0 win over hapless Brondby.

The double-header v the Danes looks set to ignite the campaign and 3 points in the next one seem very possible, giving Rangers a strong position with 6 points after 4 matches, putting Steven Gerrard’s men into sudden last 32 progression.

Of course, you don’t count points before you’ve won them, but it’s pretty safe to say this is the worst group team Steven Gerrard has faced in all his UEL campaigns to date, and while they had a couple of hairy moments, Rangers were a league apart from the Scandinavians.

Guest writer Toke Theilade, a massive Brondby supporter, warned us in advance how bad his team were these days, and we guess we underestimated just how astonishingly rotten they actually were.

They did have one or two moments, mostly self-inflicted by some dreadfully poor Rangers defending, but all in all this was an easy win for Rangers and gives the Ibrox side a foothold in the group at last.

Win the next one, and Rangers will almost certainly be second and with a genuine chance of last 32 participation.

Not a bad night really.

  1. How can we not play like that every week ? And hopefully on Sunday we beat the Paisley Buddies that easy, teams we should be hammering every single week

  2. Much more like Rangers tonight and with all respect to your “hapless” summation of Brondby we did ride our luck on a few occasions. Brondby were much like we have been at times recently in front of goal, clumsy and panicked when presented with half a chance. The difference is that when we are failing to put teams to the sword we are generally still dominating possession. If they had a top striker in their ranks we could have had a very different evening giving away a few clear cut chances. I think we will win away and against Sparta but we need to repeat tonight’s efforts and attack with pace to unsettle defences rather than play ping pong around the box. If Lyon beat Sparta while we pick up the points in Denmark and we win against Sparta then the Lyon match can just be enjoyed as you’d expect them to go into the game against us on 15 points.
