Rangers turn their attention to the Champions League qualifying campaign again this week with a 2-1 lead against Servette with Danilo hoping to lead his side to glory.

The Swiss outfit will be a different proposition at home given their formidable record and Michael Beale will have to have his side fully prepared.

One player who is certain to start for Rangers is Danilo, who made a goalscoring debut at Ibrox at the weekend, and he can’t wait to fire his side into the continent’s elite tournament, as reported by The Scotsman.

Rangers dream could come true for Danilo

After scoring against Livingston, Danilo will be on a high but is focussed on the job in hand:

“For me it would be a dream and I’m really looking forward to that.

“It’s not guaranteed for Rangers to play in the Champions League but we’re going to do our best and hope we can come through.

“And I would be a really happy boy to be able to go to the Champions League.

“First we need to look at Servette and maybe another game.

“We need to take it step by step.”

Servette were lucky to escape Ibrox with just a one goal deficit.

Good chances were missed in the first leg but Sam Lammers, Abdallah Sima and Danilo all hit the mark against Livingston and will be confident ahead of the trip to Geneva.

More goals have been scored from open play and the manager’s ideas look a lot closer to becoming a reality.

Qualifying for the Champions League is never easy and the other side of Servette is, probably, PSV Eindhoven, fresh from announcing Malik Tillman in a weird twist of fate.

Hopefully, Danilo’s dream comes true.
