Rangers 3-2 victory over SC Braga at Ibrox is one of the best matches of Steven Gerrard’s time with the Scottish Premiership club.

The Portuguese side went 2-0 down but a great performance, and two goals, from Ianis Hagi, and a further goal from Joe Aribo sealed victory for Rangers, and means Gerrard will have some confidence his team can progress in the Europa League.

Domestically, Rangers had another blow at the weekend as they drew 2-2 with St Johnstone, Aribo again found the back of the net, this time joined by Florian Kamberi.

Gerrard can put all that behind him for now, and Rangers fans are expected to travel to Portugal in large numbers.

Tuesday’s edition of Portuguese newspaper O Jogo reports five thousand Rangers fans are expected for the match, with some having already arrived.

There’s worry about attendance from the Braga perspective, with the 5pm kick-off time making it hard for many working fans to attend.

Therefore, O Jogo reports Braga are giving out free tickets to students, they just have to present their identification. It’s hoped this can fill the stadium up and provide some answer to the travelling Rangers supporters.
