The official UEFA Europa League account tweeted praise for Rangers star Allan McGregor to millions of followers on Wednesday.
McGregor has been a top performer for Steven Gerrard ever since returning for a second spell at Ibrox in 2018.
He received the SPFL Player of the Year award at the end of the 55-winning campaign after committing to playing on for another year.
He’s already missed six matches this season, with Jon McLaughlin receiving increased playing time.
However, the 39-year-old showed in Prague last Thursday that he’s still as sharp as ever between the sticks.
He produced several saves across the 90 minutes against Sparta, but a particularly impressive one came in the early stages of the match when he dived full-stretch to his left to keep a fizzing Jakub Pesek effort out of the top corner.
On Wednesday afternoon, the UEFA Europa League Twitter account shared multiple angles of the save and some belated praise for the Gers keeper.
The official account, which has 8.6m followers, captioned the clip ‘A top stop from Allan McGregor’, before adding three clapping emojis.

Fans will be delighted to see McGregor receiving recognition for what is just the latest in a large collection of outstanding saves he’s pulled off in the competition in recent seasons.
Gerrard will need the former Scotland international to be at his very best over the remaining group stage matchdays if Rangers are to reach the knockout stages, given that they’ve lost their opening two Group A fixtures.
