Rangers looking for Champions League recovery

Rangers face a crunch Champions League night this week and one of their stars has stressed the importance of the tie.

The Scots are currently bottom of Group G with only one point and enter a tie away in Romania against Unirea Urziceni knowing that another defeat will put an end to their distant hopes of qualifying for the next round, or even booking a place in the Europa League.

In the first game between the two sides at Ibrox, the Romanians triumphed 4-1 and striker Kenny Miller has said he hopes the club can wipe that game from their memory.

He added the team’s performances in the Scottish Premier League have improved since that game but last weekend’s match against Dundee United was abandoned at half-time due to torrential rain with Rangers winning 1-0.

Miller highlighted that his side need to keep tight in defence and hope to nick a goal in Romania to appease the memories of that disappointing night at Ibrox last month.

“It puts it right in our own hands again if we can win this game,” said Miller. “It obviously depends on the other score. We’ve got a home game against Stuttgart next and if we can win that as well then you never know.”

Rangers will need to attempt to upset the Champions League football odds without a number of first-team players. Madjid Bougherra, Pedro Mendes, Kirk Broadfoot and Maurice Edu are all missing for the game against Unirea Urziceni.

Walter Smith’s men have been dealt some good news as Lee McCulloch has been passed fit for the tie.
