Gers midfielder vows to take revenge

19th July 2019, 15:37 by Bobbie Jackson

Rangers will be seeking revenge over Progres Niederkorn when they meet in the Europa League, according to Andy Halliday.

The Scottish outfit booked their place in the second qualifying round of the Europa League on Thursday courtesy of a 10-0 aggregate victory against St Joseph's.

Their reward is a tie against Progres Niederkorn of Luxembourg and the match-up will undoubtedly bring back some troubling memories for the Gers.

Rangers threw away a 2-0 lead when they last met Progres in 2017 and boss Pedro Caixinha, who had expensively assembled a squad, was left red faced.

Halliday wasn't involved on that day but insists the current crop will do everything possible to exact some revenge this season.

"There will be question marks on the basis of the result two years ago so it's a good chance for the boys who were here at that time to put things right," Halliday said.

"Will we raise what happened two years ago with the new guys here now? 100 per cent, although I do believe we're a different team.

"We could have had an upset against St Joseph's home or away but we approached the game in the right manner and did the job we had to do."
