  4. Both Rangers & Porto on four points in Group G, two behind leaders Young Boys
  5. Celtic qualify for last 32 after beating Lazio
  6. Stoppage-time Ntcham goal earns stunning win

Large admission. I lasted 65 minutes and turned over as I really didn't see us getting anything out of the game. I flicked back at 83 min and was soo nervous for the last 10min.

It is one thing to play badly against livi, well etc and win. But this is one of the few times we have been able to do it in Europe and one of the fewer times to do it against a class act like Porto.

Let's just hope the new manager effect dick is having tonight is a dead cat bounce. We have been so near too many times for me to think we are now through.
Got to admit I could never turn a Gers game off when we are still drawing especially a European game. A strange choice ?

7. UEFA to investigate Lazio players betting against themselves.
I've never seen a performance like it from any team from any country.

Porto had loads of the ball in the first half and played some nice stuff, but apart from Kamara's brilliant clearance off the line, Shagger had very little to do
We started to come into it in the second half and once we scored there was only going to be one winner.... Goldson was immense

Don't care what anybody says out with Rangers, Alfie is the top player in Scotland and if he played with the tims the media would be salivating about him

Quite surprised to see a paragraph like this in the BBC match report. Positively effusive by their standards:

"Not for the first time, Rangers faced a daunting task under a dark sky in Govan, only to send a household name away beleaguered and bemused into the chilled night. Spartak Moscow. Villareal. Legia Warsaw. Feyenoord. And now Porto. All have come to Glasgow, all sent away again without even scoring a goal."

"Plenty has been made of the European ties across the city at Celtic Park. And rightly so. Yet there is something fascinating about watching Rangers on these evenings. For a group largely untested at this level prior to last year, there is a swagger and courage to their play. Against Sergio Conceicao's men, they survived an early scare to at least make the first half competitive, before fearlessly dictating the play once they had their blue noses in front."

the pass that gifted the Taigs the win was ridiculous. You would be forgiven for thinking the Tallies had thrown that game
It happened more than once. It was a very odd game to be sure.
The point is that the Beeb would have been sure to mention that Rangers ONLY won by one goal had we faced such an effort. Lazio played at walking pace.
The reality is that after watching both games I'm starting to believe this is going to a great season.
Morelos, in the past month has added so much to his game. Can't wait for the LC Final.

Alfie’s two against them are of the finest quality you’ll see anywhere.

Great team goal that he finished off and a fecking sublime touch and boom from tonight. Also special mention for Ryan Jack‘s assist. Must have been tempted to fire it across hard and hope but instead he picks out Alfie with a great cut-back.

I wouldn’t want to be laundering Ally’s undercrackers this week.
