THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL – HAPPY DAYS!

The Gers face Sporting Lisbon at Ibrox tonight in the final 32 of The Europa League.

Its the third European tie between the teams, with Rangers not only winning both of the previous ties but progressing to the final of the respective European tournaments on each occassion.

Older members will remember the dramatic circumstances surrounding the win on the way to Barcelona and winning the European Cup Winners Cup in 1971/72, while more recently The Gers won a memorable tie on the way to the UEFA Cup Final in Manchester.
