Rangers stunned Porto with two goals in three minutes at Ibrox tonight to pick up a fantastic win over the Portuguese giants – and Gers fans on Twitter are in dreamland with the result.
Goals from Alfredo Morelos and Steven Davis gave Steven Gerrard’s side a huge win in their bid to reach the knockout rounds and leave the Gers undefeated against last season’s Champions League quarter-finalists.

Rangers were far from at their best against Porto and struggled to really get going in the first half before a brilliant turnaround saw them dominate much of the second 45.
Despite the poor first half, the two goals were both the result of some really good football and Alfredo Morelos played a huge part in both.
The Colombian expertly fired home the first from Ryan Jack’s cross before turning creator and picking out Davis for the Ulsterman to double the Gers lead and send Ibrox absolutely crazy.
Fans on Twitter were absolutely delighted with the result – with one saying Gerrard has “given us our Rangers back” and it is hard to disagree with that sentiment.
Here are some of the best comments from Rangers fans:
That's a magnificent result. Absolutely exhilarating! Proud. Proud. Proud.

Winning ugly at a higher level of football – that’s a statement result for Rangers’ progress under Gerrard.

If you'd told me a few years back we'd be back in the Europa League group stages taking 4 points off Porto I'd have called you a doctor!
