Rangers boss Steven Gerrard beside himself after famous Europa League comeback victory

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard went berserk at Ibrox on Thursday night as his side registered a famous European comeback victory against Portuguese outfit Sporting Braga.

The visitors scored the opener in the 11th minute through Fransergio, with Abel Ruiz doubling the advantage in the second half for the Archbishops.

The prospect of a miserable night loomed large for the Gers, but they mustered an incredible fight to turn-around the situation.

Ianis Hagi struck the first blow before Joe Aribo came off the bench to cancel out their opponent’s advantage.

The Ibrox stadium erupted when the Romanian midfielder grabbed his second goal to register a memorable victory for the Light Blues.

While talking to BT Sport via BBC, Gerrard expressed his feelings thus:

“Fantastic night obviously, very pleased for the supporters. I think we’ve rediscovered ourselves, certainly from the second-half performance. We were disappointed with a few things at half-time.

‘We’ve beat a good team. We showed unbelievable character, we ran hard for each other, we were more compact, more organised, we had a better shape and we were on the front-foot more in the second half.”

Rangers will travel to Portugal next week as they hope to win or earn a draw to progress to the last-16 of the competition.

Although they will have to make do without their star player Alfredo Morelos as the player earned himself a suspension for the next match at Estádio Municipal de Braga.

Meanwhile, they will face St. Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership as they hope to build on their good result against Livingston.
