Rangers could yet get their chance for revenge as old foes Progres Niederkorn took a 2-0 advantage in their Europa League QR1 tie against Cork City.

The Luxembourg minnows famously knocked Rangers out of the competition at the first qualifying phase two seasons ago.

The 2-0 defeat in Luxembourg remains one of the worst in Rangers history and fans are determined to set the record straight.

Progres’ 2-0 win in Ireland also comes of a bit of a surprise with Cork City originally the favourites for the tie.

The Irish outfit already had one eye on the potential match-up with Rangers, with their chairman talking up the possibility of the clash [the 42].


But it appears they have seriously underestimated an organised and professional Progres Niederkorn side.

Now the County Cork club will need a huge performance away in Luxembourg at the same ground Rangers toiled in two years ago.

Should they fail to turn the tie around, things should come full circle when they face Rangers in the next round.

Expect a packed Ibrox baying for blood should Progres hold it together for the second leg.

The Ibrox club is a shoo-in for QR2 after dismantling Gibraltar side St. Joseph’s 4-0 in the first leg of their QR1 tie this week.
