Rangers captain James Tavernier has sent a message to fans thanking them for their “amazing support” over in Warsaw last night as almost 2000 bluenoses made the trip to the Polish capital for the Europa League clash with Legia.

Tavernier didn’t have his best game for the Gers but is pleased the Light Blues kept a clean sheet to bring back to Glasgow for the second leg.

The Buddies will be another tough test for the Gers but there should me more than enough in the Rangers side to pick up the three points and maintain their 100% start to the league season.

When Legia do come calling to Ibrox, the place will be packed to the rafter and hopefully help push Rangers on to a place in the group stage for a second successive season.
