'That's the team to win it in Gdansk'; 'Please make subs'; 'Get Zungu on to balance the game': Fans react to Rangers line-up to face Standard Liege

Steven Gerrard’s starting line-up had a familiar look to it – and most felt Rangers were fielding their strongest line-up against Standard Liege.

Allan McGregor took his place for a record-breaking appearance and the omission of Ianis Hagi was a topic of debate, indeed the whole midfield set-up was discussed by the fans on social media.

However there was confidence in the starting XI – and even beyond tonight’s match and the group stage…

@LiamWATP: “That's the team that's going to win the Europa League in Gdansk next year.”

Greg Sutherland: “What a squad. Bench looking great also. Re: Hagi - he was one i was very much looking forward to seeing this year, but so far he's been unable to get in the first XI. Has ability, but needs to run and tackle far more in the SPL. Very much like Aribo - needs a year to adapt, but will come good next year when he fully understands the needs of a Rangers player.”

@CF3Loyal: “Good to have Aribo on the bench tonight, he’s the one player who we can almost guarantee to come on and give us ‘something’ - whether we need a goal or want to shore things up. He’s someone who can offer both, and might result in us actually making a sub today.”

@Pena_Cartel: “Strong team, let's do this.”

Mark McGrath: “That is obviously Gerrard’s strongest XI bar Jack. Let's get the job done tonight and we can rest some players next week and have a few youngsters on and give them a bit more experience.”

Daren Kennedy: “Strong side, out and finish the job lads.”

@ThomasDMM1: “Team picks itself tbh”

@18Mason72: “Why Davis? we are trying to win tonight not draw

Sandy Njomane: “Zungu will come on to balance the game when Rangers is leading coz it has become a habit to throw away two goal leads in Europa.”

Trevor Kerr: “Hopefully get Dickson and King on again, if not today quality with game to go they can get run out next game.”

Meanwhile there was a plea of the management – @RFC1872II: “Please make subs when players look tired.”
