Steven Gerrard’s team travels to Belgium to fly the flag of Scottish football in Europe

Rangers are back in for vibrant Europa League action tonight with a place in the last 16 of the Prize

With Steven Gerrard’s side, only four wins move from the Premiership title focus to the continental stage to mimic the last 16 qualifications from last season

Rangers are unbeaten in competition this season and have led a difficult group with Portuguese giant Benfica

You have two wins against Standard Liege in the group and it is a return to Belgium to face Franky Vercauteren’s side

Gerrard welcomes Alfredo Morelos back from the lock The striker wants to continue his impressive record in this competition

He will support Kemar Roofe in attack, but there is no room for Ryan Kent or Ryan Jack

Antwerp: Beiranvand, Seck, Le Marchand, De Laet, Buta, Boya, Hongla, Lukaku, Rafaelov, Gerkens, Avenatti Subs: Chevaughn, De Wolf, Versraete, Miyoshi, Nsimba, Ampimah, Gelin, Pavlic, Van Den Bosch

Rangers: McGregor, Barisic, Tavernier, Helander, Goldson, Kamara, Davis, Arfield, Aribo, Roofe, Morelos Subs: McLaughlin, Hagi, Jack, Itten, Kent, Wright, Stewart, Balogun, Simpson

Barisic puts in the top corner and Rangers are a target for the good guys as only injury time is available

Another problem that arises from a set piece and Ryan Jack has to leave the line

The winger should have scored, but the ball is put back into play and Antwerp cancels

Kent picks up the ball and plays a one-two with Morelos before weaving through the defense and rolling a finish past De Wolf

Barisic drills a teasing ball across the penalty area and Hagi breaks free from the defender

The Romanian is six meters from the gate, but his drilled shot misses the post

Gerrard winces in frustration and you can see why Das asked to be converted

De Wolf replaces the Israeli, who has been treated more than once and is clearly in trouble

Gerrard will be hoping Jack can give the midfield some boost and Hagi can conjure up a moment of magic

They had started half-time so well, but that goal took the fill out of their game

A 3-2 loss would still be a decent result for the last 16

It’s the Belgian’s first attack in the second half and Honglas’s shot from outside the box spins around Goldson and past McGregor

The goalkeeper has no chance as the ball spins in the opposite direction from the first stroke

Both Goldson and Balogun dived in to protect their target, but it was intervention that proved crucial

They were aggressive from the start and the forefoot manager clearly got into them during the break

Seck is booked and the great defender will miss a return. That was a nasty, naughty foul on Kent

Beiranvand doesn’t cover himself with fame again as he guesses the right way, but he doesn’t have enough hands

The referee checks the video monitor and grants Rangers the penalty after Morelos is knocked down in the pits

The midfielder pushes it past the goalkeeper, but De Laet comes first and clears the ball while Morelos lies in wait

Davis takes it on in midfield, but his ball floats back with no connection

The Croatian was to blame for the goal and now he has made a foul in a dangerous area

Bulgarian referee Georgi Kabakov allowed seven minutes of injury in the first half, and Antwerp counted

They were second best for most of the first half, but a defensive mistake by Barisic and a mild penalty mean Gerrard’s men are now against it

There was other bad news too when Kemar Roofe and James Tavernier were both pushed off the field with injuries

The loss of Captain Tavernier will be of particular concern to Rangers as he is the only available right-back who is vital to the team’s tactical workings

However, it’s not all doom and gloom, Antwerp isn’t a big shock and Morelos et al have the attack quality to score more goals

He didn’t look right for a while and now Kent, who is not 100 percent himself, has replaced the striker

Borna Barisic is caught on the wrong side of the busy target man and the header is brilliantly shot into the corner

Allan McGregor doesn’t stand a chance, but the defense is bad. Gerrard will be raging after all the hard work in this first half

It was a small encounter in the first 20 minutes, but slowly and surely Gerrard’s men have taken control

They pushed their way forward ten minutes before the kick-off and were very happy about the balls thrown up in the background

The striker can’t quite make it when the goalkeeper rushes out, but he inexplicably lets the ball fall out of his grip

The ball falls about 25 yards in front of Aribo and he shows icy composure to throw the ball past a crowd of bodies

That was so cool from the midfielder and it’s 100 Goal of the Ibrox men’s season

Great skills from Glen Kamara set him free on the line of contact, but his low cross is held by Beiranvand

This is the best Ibrox men saying in the game yet. They are now dominant in terms of possession and territory

The Antwerp goalkeeper gives the ball away a moment later and Roofe is pushed back in, but he can’t quite get away from his marker
