Rangers travelled to Moscow to take on Spartak Moscva who were in desperate need of three points. The game must have been entertaining for any neutrals watching, but the tie slowly ended into a nightmare for Steven Gerrard’s men as they succumbed to their first defeat in Europe this season.
The game was open and end to end as the home side had to go for three points. Therefore they were attacking in numbers. The first half was full of action, some brilliant play, some shoddy defensive work, some good runs and a poor call from the linesman. You name it and the first half had everything. The Gers went ahead twice and were pegged back by the Russian outfit who brought it on level terms. However, Glenn Middleton’s goal late in the first half saw them take the lead once again and end the half at 3-2.
Rangers failed to turn up in the second half and were stunned by two quick goals. The Light Blues were unable to threaten much in the second 45 apart from the final 5 minutes and what seemed like a comfortable win at one stage ended with Gerrard and his men returning empty-handed from Russia.
Here is how the fans reacted on Twitter after their unbeaten run in Europe came to an end.
Some fans were seemingly miffed with Joe Worrall’s earlier comments where he clearly indicated that he didn’t want to extend his stay at Ibrox beyond this season.
