Nigeria internationals and Rangers players, Leon Balogun and Joe Aribo, were both on duty last night when their team beat Royal Antwerp 5-2 to qualify for the next round of the Europa League on a 9-5 aggregate score.
Aribo played the entire duration of the match while Balogun was substituted during half-time after bagging a yellow card earlier.
Balogun’s replacement, Nathan Patterson, scored within 17 seconds of coming on to restore Rangers’ lead on the night after Alfredo Morelos and Antwerp’s Lior Refaelov had traded goals.
Ryan Kent quickly made it 3-1 before Didier Lamkel Ze replied in a breathless start to the second half, but penalties from Borna Barisic and Cedric Itten dispelled any doubts.
Rangers will discover their last-16 opponents in Friday’s draw at 12:00 GMT.
