Former Rangers and Poland defender Dariusz Adamczuk thinks the Gers will beat his compatriots Legia Warsaw in the Europa League playoff – and pointed to the “great style” shown in the win over FC Midtjylland to make his case.
Adamczuk spent three years at Ibrox between 1999 and 2002 and expects two “great matches” with a “special” atmosphere when the sides meet over the coming weeks.
“I make it 70-30 in favour of Rangers,”
“My former club has a really good manager in Steven Gerrard and look at the way they got past FC Midtjylland in great style. I know that Rangers lost to Progres Niederkorn of Luxembourg a couple of years ago, but a lot has changed since then.
“They were runners-up to Celtic in Scotland, but they have improved.
“It should be a couple of great matches and the atmosphere at both games will be special. It would be good and important for Polish football if Legia qualify, but I don’t see it.”
After joining the Gers from Dundee in 1999, the Pole was used sparingly before hanging his boots up in 2002.
The defender won 11 caps for his country during his career and was part of the squad who won the silver medal at the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona, losing thanks to a last-minute goal and handing a Spanish squad including the likes of Pep Guardiola, Santiago Canizares and Luis Enrique the gold.
