Set for a sell-out clash with Malmo this week – the first full house in Scottish football since their meeting with Bayer Leverkusen back in March 2020, just days before the COVID-19 pandemic shut the sport down – Rangers will be keen to respond to their fans’ demands for Champions League qualification.

As they attempt to overcome their third qualifying round first-leg loss at the Eleda Stadion, it is certain that Steven Gerrard’s side will need such backing, given their opponents’ imperious form in recent times.

Finding themselves with a sudden two-goal deficit when Soren Rieks and Veljko Birmancevic both netted for the Swedish champions – within a matter of seconds in the second half – veteran midfielder Steven Davis rode to the rescue with the last kick of the game.

While his crucial strike sees Rangers back in contention, it still leaves them with a tough task in hand to set up a playoff tie with either Ludogorets or Olympiakos later this month, particularly considering their aura of invincibility has dimmed of late.

Just days after defeat in Sweden, on Saturday, Jamie Robson’s goal for Dundee United was enough to condemn Gerrard’s side to a first league reverse since losing to Hamilton Academical in March 2020 – a remarkable total of 41 Scottish Premiership matches.

The Light Blues have failed to reach the Champions League proper for over a decade – having suffered serious off-pitch travails in the intervening period, that is perhaps no surprise –

and their nerves will not be helped by noting what happened the last time the club reached this stage of the competition. Back in the qualifiers of 2011, it was in fact Malmo who knocked them out.

Current Malmo coach Jon Dahl Tomasson has the club on course for successive titles under his leadership, after they won three of their last four Allsvenskan matches by a cumulative scoreline of 11-0; cruising past Sirius, Degerfors and Mjallby respectively.

Though, in the aftermath of their win over Rangers, they were held to a goalless draw by Halmstad on Saturday, they remain tied on points with Djurgarden at the top of the table, and European progress represents the next target for an upwardly mobile club.

It has been a challenging route they have taken so far, though, as Di Blae only made it through the first two stages last month by virtue of a 2-1 aggregate win against Riga and a hard-fought 2-2 draw in Helsinki, which secured a 3-2 overall victory over HJK
