Rangers 3 Braga 2: Steven Gerrard's men produce famous European comback
20 Feb 2020 at 10:56pm
THERE have been some quite extraordinary European nights at Ibrox in the 64 years that Rangers have been involved in continental competition. This encounter with Braga was up there with any of them for drama and excitement and will live long in the memory of the 49,378 supporters who were fortunate enough to be in attendance. A deflected Ianis Hagi free-kick with just eight minutes of regulation time remaining capped a sensational second-half fightback by Steven Gerrard?s side and resurrected their chances of winning this last 32 double header after all hope had seemed lost. They had fallen two goals behind to Ruben Amorim?s side after an hour and appeared to be heading for their first European defeat at Ibrox under their manager in 15 games and out of the competition. They had been wasteful in attack, outclassed in midfield and repeatedly cut open at the back and looked certain to pay a heavy price for those failings with a painful and costly loss. But James Tavernier and his team mates had other ideas. Ianis Hagi pulled one back when he whipped in a shot from the edge of the Braga penalty box, substitute Joe Aribo drew them level with a stunning individual goal and then Hagi added a second in the closing stages amid extraordinary scenes. A fan jumped over the advertising hoardings to celebrate with the jubilant players before being led away by police and stewards and a flare was thrown onto the playing surface. UEFA are likely to take a dim view. But it was easy to understand the reaction to a quite remarkable and completely unexpected finale. Rangers turned defeat and a potential exit from the tournament into a famous victory with three goals in the space of 15 unbelievable minutes. The Govan ground was bouncing when the final whistle blew. There is obviously still much work to do before a place in the last 16 is secured given that the visitors, who had dominated for the first hour, notched two away goals. Rangers will also take to the field for the second leg of this double header in the Estadio Municipal De Braga next Wednesday evening without their first choice striker and leading scorer Alfredo Morelos. The absence of the Colombian, who was booked for dissent by Spanish referee Xavier Estrada Fernandez in the first-half after fouling Bruno Viana, from their starting line-up will be keenly felt. But nothing could dampen the spirits of the Rangers fans who filed out of Ibrox into the night after what they had witnessed. Rangers could have been two goals down within the opening six minutes. Raul Silva got on the end of a dipping Nuno Sequeira free-kick on the edge of their six yard box and got a downward header on target. Allan McGregor did well to react quickly and deny the defender. That said, Wallace should really have nodded in the rebound. The Lazio loanee threw his arms in the air after his effort went wide. He knew he had spurned a gilt-edged scoring opportunity. Gerrard had warned his charges that their opponents, who have claimed the scalps of Porto, Sporting Lisbon and Benfica in their domestic league this year, were deadly on the counter attack in the build-up to this encounter. But their play in the centre of the park was still poor. Steven Davis gave the ball away and Trincao Francisco supplied Abel Ruiz before receiving a cutback himself. His slow shot whistled past McGregor?s right post. The hosts were living dangerously. The crowd, deafening when the game kicked off, knew it. A concerned silence spread around the stadium. To Rangers credit they responded immediately and carved out an excellent chance of their own just a minute later. Connor Goldson sent Morelos racing down the right flank and he squared to the advancing Ryan Kent. The winger, though, just failed to make a connection in front of the Braga goal. The hope that passage of play gave the home supporters proved short-lived. Glen Kamara gave away possession in the middle of the park and then Scott Arfield failed to prevent Fransergio breaking forward. The midfielder unleashed a powerful right foot shot from fully 25 yards out which flew past McGregor and into the Rangers net off the underside of the crossbar. Wallace, the Brazilian defender, was immediately replaced by his countryman Galeno, a forward. Rangers came into the game more. Morelos broke through on the Braga goal twice before half-time, on both occasions after being supplied by Hagi. But each time keeper Mattheus blocked his attempts with his legs. Braga forged further ahead in the 59th minute when Rangers gave Ruiz time and space to tee up a shot. The Spaniard, on loan from Barcelona, took full advantage, and rifled a low shot beyond McGregor and into the bottom left corner. It looked like being the end of their European adventure for Rangers. Instead, it was just the beginning of stunning comeback. Who knows what the second leg will bring after this?


Steven Gerrard marvels at Ianis Hagi magic in famous Rangers win over Braga
20 Feb 2020 at 11:05pm
STEVEN Gerrard last night lauded Ianis Hagi for producing the magic that enabled Rangers to pull off a remarkable comeback against Braga at Ibrox ? in front of his famous footballing father Gheorghe. Gerrard?s men appeared to be heading for a painful defeat in the first leg of the Europa League last 32 double header when they fell two goals behind to their Portuguese rivals after an hour. However, Hagi, who only joined the Glasgow club on loan from Genk last month, struck twice in the space of 15 minutes to help ensure the home side recorded a famous 3-2 triumph. Gerrard, whose substitute Joe Aribo also netted, singled out the Romanian playmaker for special praise at the end of the 90 minutes and revealed his legendary dad had been in attendance. ?Ianis is an outstanding talent,? he said. ?That stage is made for him. There is a lot of pressure on him. His dad was in the crowd for the first time at Ibrox. ?But he has not just got fight in him he has got talent. He provided the magic and the spark for us to get back in the game. His first goal was with his weaker foot apparently. To have the audacity to try his luck from 30 yards out for the winner was incredible. ?I am still waiting for my heart rate to calm down a little bit. It was a fantastic game of football. We have beaten a really good dangerous team tonight. I am really proud of my players ? the character and effort and desire they put in was incredible. ?This is what Ibrox deserves and what this club deserves. At 2-0 there were people leaving a bit of negativity behind the dugout. But in European football magical nights happen. I have experienced them before as a player and I hope to experience many more in future.? Gerrard will be without his leading scorer Alfredo Morelos for the return leg in the Estadio Municipal de Braga next Wednesday after the Colombian picked up a booking for dissent in the first-half. However, the Liverpool and England great is convinced his team can travel abroad and get the result they need to progress to the last 16 of the competition. ?The tie is set up really well,? he said. ?It is only half-time. You don?t want to be missing plyers like Alfredo with the quality he has got. But we proved tonight if we show our quality and our strengths we can create against this team. ?We know we are going to have a big challenge in Portugal. Nobody in my dressing room is getting carried away. But what we have done tonight is put ourselves in a good position.?
