Match preview

Following a dreadful display on Tuesday night, Rangers need to show a reaction.

In mid-week, last season’s Europa League runners-up began their latest bid to reach the Champions League group stages.

The Light Blues went into their tie with Royale Union Saint-Gilloise as big favourites, given that the Belgian club haven’t played in European competition for 58 years.

However, Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side offered nothing all night, slumping to a 2-0 defat at Den Dreef.

Jon McLaughlin was at fault for the first goal, with the host’s second one of the most scandalous penalty decisions you’re ever likely to see.

So, if Rangers are to reach the Champions League play-offs, they’re going to need a big turnaround when USG visit Ibrox this forthcoming Tuesday.

Before then, can they make it back-to-back wins to start the Premiership season?

Last Saturday, they came from a goal down to beat Livingston 2-1 at the Tony Macaroni Arena.

Scott Arfield volleying home an equaliser at Almondvale before, 101 seconds later, James Tavernier’s magnificent free-kick snatched the points.

Here, in-between two massive European games, will the Gers avoid a domestic slip-up?

Kilmarnock meanwhile are back in the top-flight as Championship champions, starting with a point on the opening day.

They did leave it late, but Ash Taylor’s emphatic stoppage time equaliser saw Killie hold Dundee United to a 1-1 draw at Rugby Park.

Manager Derek McInnes has won just six of 30 meetings with Rangers, so would love to improve that ratio here.

Can Kilmarnock spring a massive surprise?
