Ghana's No. 1

Rangers off the mark in Europa group

Published on: 21 October 2021

Leon Balogun's header sent Rangers on their way to a first win in Group A

Alfredo Morelos was kept waiting for his 100th Rangers goal as Steven Gerrard's men revived their Europa League knockout hopes by easing to victory over Brondby at Ibrox.

Leon Balogun's thumping header and a Kemar Roofe tap-in - from a parried Morelos header - gave Rangers their first points at the third attempt to lift them off the bottom of Group A.

Morelos hit the post and substitute Scott Arfield struck the crossbar as the hosts were denied further goals to cement their superiority.

Lyon's comeback win at Sparta Prague leaves Gerrard's side a point behind the Czechs at the halfway stage of the group.

A trip to Denmark next will hold no fears for the Scottish champions after Brondby offered feeble opposition in Glasgow.
