Rangers fans have responded on social media after the Gers team news was confirmed for the Europa League Round of 32 second-leg clash vs Royal Antwerp.

The hosts carry an advantage into this evening’s match under the lights at Ibrox, having triumphed 4-3 in a dramatic first leg in Antwerp last week.

Ahead of the game, James Tavernier, Ryan Jack and Kemar Roofe were all ruled out through injury, but Steven Gerrard has still managed to name a strong side.

Allan McGregor continues in goal and the back four is unchanged from Sunday’s Premiership win over Dundee United, with Leon Balogun and Borna Barisic named as the full-backs and Connor Goldson and Filip Helander pairing up at centre-back.

In midfield, Glen Kamara replaces the injured Jack, slotting in alongside in-form duo Steven Davis and Joe Aribo.
