Rangers roared into the Champions League play-offs after they overcame Union Saint-Gilloise and a two-goal first-leg defeat in a rousing showing.

The hosts had it all to do after losing in Belgium, but goals from James Tavernier, Antonio Colak, and Malik Tillman gave Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side a spirited victory at Ibrox. While blunt in the first leg, the Rangers were by far the better team in Glasgow against a Union side who had Lazare Amani sent off late on.

Tavernier’s penalty and Colak’s close-range header set up a tense finale, before Tillman’s fantastic 79th-minute header put Rangers ahead in the tie for the very first time during a strong second half.

They will now face PSV Eindhoven in the play-offs as they bid to return to the group stage for the first time since 2010.
