Steven Gerrard faces perhaps the most important match of his short managerial career tonight, able to get his Rangers side through to the next stage of the Europa League.
In the home game in October, two goals from Alfredo Morelos and another from James Tavernier, via the penalty spot, helped Gerrard’s men to a 3-1 victory at Ibrox.
That would certainly do again, and the Austrian media believe more than 10,000 followers of the Scottish Premiership club have travelled to Vienna for the match.
Local police are expecting a lot of drinking to be going on, and have taken steps to warn Rangers fans that mulled wine isn’t quite the pop it sometimes tastes like.
With Christmas markets around Vienna at this time of year, the warming and alcoholic drink is often a big hit.
Any plans for the evening? Consider one of the many international pubs all over the city, or have a traditional hot wine at one of our Christmas markets. Pay attention for pickpockets and please note: Hot wine is a lot stronger than Jaw Brew! 😉 #SCRRFC

Fans have also been warned that a demonstration has been planned in the city centre against the government, and that the area is usually extremely busy at this time of year anyway.
