Mols warns Rangers of Feyenoord threat

17th September 2019, 17:17 by Andy Schooler

Rangers legend Michael Mols has warned Rangers "have to be careful" when they face Feyenoord in the Europa League on Thursday.

Feyenoord, the club with whom Mols ended his playing career, have finished well off the pace in the Eredivisie in each of the last two seasons but the Dutchman says that new boss Jaap Stam has them playing a dangerous brand of attacking football which could trouble his former club.

Rangers are unbeaten in their least 13 European games at Ibrox, a run which includes four wins out of four in this season’s qualifying rounds.

However, Mols, who won six trophies, including the 2002/03 domestic Treble during his time in Scotland, believes that record could come under threat this week.

He told the Glasgow Herald: “They still have quality in the team so the Rangers fans have to have that in mind.

“I think the winger, Steven Berghuis, is a dangerous player and a good player. He is very quick, very skilful and he has a good shot with his left so he is someone that Rangers will have to be aware of.

“It is always in the nature of teams from Holland to play football, to attack. We are not defensively-minded, we don’t look to park the bus. There is a certain kind of mind that means they will attack and they have some dangerous players up front, players with pace and individual skills. Rangers have to be careful.”

The game is Rangers’ first in a group which also includes Porto, of Portugal, and Swiss side Young Boys.
