With progression to the Europa League third qualifying round in the bag, Rangers fans are continuing to praise Nikola Katic and Connor Goldson.
The defensive pair’s clean sheet run ended at five after Osijek grabbed a late leveller, but an early second half strike from Katic meant that Rangers secured qualification with a deserved 2-1 aggregate victory.
Much has been made of the new defensive recruits Steven Gerrard brought in over the summer, and fans were queuing up to show their love for them once again on Thursday night.
Here’s a look at what some fans had to say about the Katic/Goldson partnership on Twitter:
Don't think there's any doubt that Goldson and Katic are the best defenders in European football history

Between Goldson, Katic and McGregor we should get used to the fact that the opposition getting into our half isn't like having a penalty

Job done. Thought Candeias and Kent were brilliant with their energy. Well chuffed for big Katic, happy for him to get headlines while big Goldson mops everything up at the back. Solid. We march on.

Katic n Goldson are unreal man, McGregor in goals been excellent. We won't be conceding many goals this season.

Late goal aside, superb team performance against tough opposition. Katic MOTM but so many outstanding. Jack, Flanagan, Goldson. Really deserved the win.

Goldson n Katic best centre back pairing since Nesta n Maldini #fact
