Remember Ibrox Noise and our nerves leading up to Seville?
Obviously resting on that one were rewards on a scale we’d never seen before – the UEL trophy, super cup final place, £40M-60M+ for group in UCL, and being a pot 1 side with a stronger chance of going to KO.
It was a veritable treasure trove, and it was worth everything to us.
Frankfurt took it on a single penalty, and even though they probably did deserve the win overall, Rangers could easily have taken it had we been more clinical, defended better, and not signed Aaron Ramsey.
However, the tension leading to that final was massive.
And guess what – it’s exactly the same for this two-legged juggernaut against PSV.
A place in the CL, a deserved place that Rangers have surely earned over 4 years (even if Celtic stole it) awaits the winners of this one, and the gorgeous finance that this entails.
We explained how the CL is effectively worth in the region of about £60M these days, JUST for getting to the group.
Well, that still stands, and that lucrative spot awaits the triumphant party – this is effectively why Gio is our manager.
This is his true earning of his crust – if he can overcome mighty PSV and get us into the group stage, it will arguably eclipse getting to Seville because this is a much higher level.
The Promised Land is the CL, and PSV stand in our way.
This will be anything but easy, but Gio can do it.
