Rangers captain James Tavernier sent a message to Gers fans after last night’s 0-0 draw with Legia Warsaw thanking them for their support and insisting the Light Blues are “more than capable” of reaching the Europa League group stages – and fans on Twitter have got right behind the skipper ahead of Thursday’s crunch Ibrox clash.
Both sides had their chances to win last night’s first leg in Warsaw and Tavernier said he was “pleased” to have left the Polish Army Stadium with a clean sheet after a string of saves from Allan McGregor.
Steven Gerrard’s side will now have the backing of a noisy Ibrox on Thursday night as they look to reach the Europa League groups for the second season in a row and Tavernier is confident the Gers have enough to make it there.
Tavernier didn’t have the best of games against Legia but grew into the game as the Gers looked to snatch an away goal to bring back to Glasgow.
Gers fans on Twitter were happy with the result overall – with a few praising Tavernier’s performance against the Poles and encouraging Rangers to finish the job on Thursday.
Here are some of the best comments from Rangers fans:

@LegiaWarszawa are a good team, so whilst tonight was disappointing it is not the end of the world to go there & leave with a no score draw. The lads played well, and as you say on to Sunday & @saintmirrenfc and another hard game. #foreveryoneandanyone
