Rangers have progressed to the next round of Europa League football but it was not pretty watching it last night.
Progres have caused us issues before – and they shouldn’t have – and clearly last night we were very wary of them doing that again.
We saw the tie out, then, and won 2-0 overall but it was a far from convincing display where we were guilty of over-playing and looked a little short on confidence.
Anyway, the main thing is we are through and we can now look to Kilmarnock and hopefully a better display to kick our league campaign off in style.
Whether Borna Barisic features, though, remains to be seen after he struggled and was hooked at half-time.
In fairness, that was partly because the referee seemed intent on getting his red out at some point and with Borna already on a yellow it made sense.
However, you can’t escape that he had a bit of a shocker and many fans have reacted to that on Twitter…
Borna Barisic, think it was the right decision to take him off as i didn't trust that ref and he shouldn't even have been booked. Is he our number left back though? Do we need to go out and get one as Andy Halliday certainly isn't good enough to be it.

Not sounding biased but ref was shocking end of day through that's all that matters to me

Steven Gerrard taking Barisic off before he’s sent off. Another below par performance from the Croatian internationalist. Patience must be running out with him. I’d imagine we’d accept an offer which matches the price we paid for him if it came in.

Barasic was awful in first half, not surprised.
