The win was Rangers’ eleventh game without defeat in Europe this season and Gerrard and his players will be excited to see who they are taking on next month for a place in the quarter-finals.
Gerrard’s side have been relentless this season so far, with the quality of football played in Europe at times a joy to watch.
While there are some massive names in the draw for the last 16, Rangers have no reason to fear any of the big names left in the competition.
Fans were absolutely delighted as they took to Twitter to celebrate the 9-5 aggregate win and Gerrard’s side taking their place in tomorrow’s draw.
Here are some of the comments from Rangers fans on Twitter:
This team is an absolute joy 💙

Steven Gerrard’s Rangers in Europe are RELENTLESS. Another brilliant night in Europe, thoroughly entertaining – the complete opposite of Walter Smith’s side in 2008. We can not defend like that in the next round but I can’t wait for the draw tomorrow because WE ARE THROUGH!
