Villarreal star wants his fans to be like Rangers supporters

Villarreal midfielder Manu Morlanes wants his fans to be like Rangers supporters for their final fixture with Spartak Moscow.

And the 19-year-old has said Ibrox was the noisiest he has heard in his career so far. He added that the experience “will live with him forever”.

The youngster was clearly impressed by the passion of the Rangers supporters. He also described the noise as “deafening”.

As quoted in the Daily Record, Morlanes said: “The truth is the noise in the stadium was deafening for our players.

“It was great to play on a stage like Ibrox. It didn’t scare me, in fact it motivated me more. I think the whole team stood up to the test.

“If we can play at a stadium like that, then we can perform anywhere.

“We need something from our last game against Spartak Moscow and I hope our fans support us like the Rangers fans did on Thursday.

He should’ve seen it had we scored

When Glenn Middleton’s offside goal hit the back of their net there was barely enough time for it to register before the assistant flagged and the ref blew.

Nonetheless, it’s a nice touch from Manu Morlanes, and it was an amazing result for Rangers.

And just like the fans clearly played their part in Govan Thursday past, they’ll need to do the same in a fortnight’s time.

All four teams can still qualify from Group G. It’s going to be a huge night.
