Rangers fans have responded after brilliant footage from a pre-Lyon training session at Auchenhowie was shared by the club.

The Gers have their final Europa League Group A clash against the French giants at the Groupama Stadium on Thursday evening and Gio van Bronckhorst is set to rotate with progression to the preliminary knockout round already secured.

There’s still UEFA prize money and the manager’s 100% record at stake, though, and with injuries rocking Peter Bosz’s already stuttering side, the visitors have a good chance of getting a positive result.

The Light Blues flew out to France on Wednesday but only after a press conference and a final training session.

In the evening, a RangersTV training video was released via club channels, and supporters were delighted with what they saw.

After following the warm-up on a dreich day at Auchenhowie, the footage shows the players splitting off into groups for Rondos.

Action from the popular drills fills over two minutes of the four-minute video and the players look sharp.

GvB joins in and established stars are giving it 100%, with Alfredo Morelos charging around during his time as a defender and the likes of Borna Barisic and Jermain Defoe showing impressive ability on the ball.

At one stage, Connor Goldson slips a pass through Calvin Bassey’s legs prompting roars from the others in their group, but Bassey is adamant he got a touch before the ball reached Joe Aribo.

There’s certainly plenty of competitiveness within the group and Bears will be hoping similar sharpness is shown against Lyon.

Here’s a selection of reactions to the video:

After an injury blow was confirmed, it’s likely that a 17-year-old starlet will make the Rangers matchday squad.
