Rangers fans on Twitter gearing up for massive Maribor clash

Steven Gerrard’s Rangers have an unbelievable opportunity tonight. The club kick-off away at Maribor in just an hour and 15 minutes and if they can overcome the Slovakian’s then they’ll find themselves just 180 more minutes of football away from a place in the Europa League group stages.

The Bluenoses absolutely pumped Maribor 3-1 this time last week and now nearly all of the bookies are backing Stevie G’s boys to get past their Slovakian opposition and get to the final qualifying match before the Europa League group stages and if they can get that far then Gerrard will already be viewed as a success before he’s even made it halfway through his first season at Ibrox.

That won’t be on any of the players’ minds at the moment, though, as they’ll all be focused on playing Maribor off the park and keeping them at bay. If Gerrard’s side come out of the traps slowly and concede an early goal then they’ll be right under the cosh for the rest of the game. Due to the away goals rule, Maribor will progress if they win 2-0 and that is something that Gerrard and Rangers need to avoid at all costs.

The supporters will be watching this one nervously and hoping they can hold out and get the result they need to advance to the final qualifying round.
