Stewart, on BBC Sportsound, said: “Everything is positive for Rangers on the park at the moment. They've got nothing to look at and be overly concerned about the way they are playing – it's generally good, and yes they have conceded two goals but there are no fundamental issues.

"They're still in a great position to get out of the group.”

Summarising on BT Sport, McCoist said: “There’s everything to be very, very proud so far this season - unbeaten in the group and league, the positives more than outweigh the negatives. Take a step back and they’ll think they’re doing OK.”
