  1. Thank you and goodnight

    Well, a fairly successful night for Scotland's duo. A clean sheet and comfortable win for Rangers, and a precious away goal and encouraging display from Aberdeen in Georgia.

    As always, it's been a pleasure. Keep across the BBC Sport Scotland website and our social media channels for reaction, analysis and more.


  2. Recap

    FT: Chikhura Sachkhere 1-1 Aberdeen

    A reminder from earlier, Aberdeen kicked things off in Georgia against Chikhura Sachkhere. It was a story of two penalties, with Sam Cosgrove levelling from the spot for a precious away goal.

  4. Morelos frustrated

    FT: Rangers 2-0 Progres Niederkorn

    The Colombian was quieter than normal at Ibrox this evening. He did superbly well in the first half with one swivel and shot, but he couldn't keep it on target.

  5. Pass marks or could do better?

    FT: Rangers 2-0 Progres Niederkorn

    The Rangers supporters still inside Ibrox give their team a round of applause as the full-time whistle sounds. Steven Gerrard stands on the touchline, arms folded.

    Rangers scored twice, had two goals disallowed and missed a penalty, this game undoubtedly could - and should - have been more. However, the Glasgow side will take a two-goal to Luxembourg next Thursday.

    Rangers fans, are you happy with the result? Tell us now. Thumbs up or thumbs down...

  7. Four minutes of injury time underway

    Tom Laterza

    The Progres defender is off!

    It's a second yellow for the 27-year-old, who is understandably cautioned for wrapping his arm around Jermain Defoe's neck in the centre circle.

    Can Rangers capitalise with the handful of minutes remaining?

  9. Visitors finishing with a flurry?

    Rangers 2-0 Progres Niederkorn

    Out of nowhere Progres seem to be venturing forward with a bit more bravery, obviously keen for a precious away goal. Within seconds, Rangers are back up the other end pushing, pressing and probing for what would surely be a killer third.

    It's been dominant stuff from Rangers, and perhaps against the backdrop of what happened two years ago, a two-goal lead is seen as - pardon the pun - progress. However, manager Steven Gerrard will be frustrated his team haven't put this tie to bed given their control and chances as we edge towards injury time.


    Rangers 2-0 Progres Niederkorn

    A wonderful one-two between Ryan Jack and Defoe opens the door for the former to get in behind the Progres defence. He shapes to shoot and scores with a fine finish, but celebrations are cut short with a raised flag.

    Hold on a minute.

    Mmaee goes rampaging through on goal as Rangers go sleeping. He opens his body to shoot but Allan McGregor does superbly well to get down quickly and spread himself well.

    Steven Gerrard's side could be doing without that. Ten minutes to go...

  12. SAVE!

    Rangers 2-0 Progres Niederkorn

    Substitute Jermain Defoe tries his luck from the edge of the box, but it's punched clear by Flauss.

  13. Not this time

    James Tavernier hits the post from the spot, but can Rangers find a third?

    Rangers 2-0 Progres Niederkorn

    Substitute Jordan Jones is sandwiched between two defenders after just being on the park a matter of a couple of minutes.

    James Tavernier places the ball down aiming for his first goal of the season. Instead, his right-footed effort from the spot but it comes off the base of the post with Flauss beaten.

  16. Tekiela

    Hope everyone got that tequila song reference in the last post...

  17. CLOSE!

    Rangers 2-0 Progres Niederkorn

    Inches away from number three. Joe Aribo's tantalising cross shuttles across the six-yard box as Sheyi Ojo moves in with the goal gaping. He appears to be put off by Tekiela - it makes me happy - and he can't connect.

    Moments later Flauss somehow manages to claw the ball away from Ryan Jack as the ball almost trundles into the net.

  18. Pressure builds on panicked Progres

    Rangers 2-0 Progres Niederkorn

    A sweeping move from Rangers ends in frustration. The ball is worked across the front line at pace as Progres scramble back. Eventually the ball is fed to Alfredo Morelos, his scudding shot sent wheeching (flying, for our non-Scottish readers) into the side net. Looked like it took a nick off a defender's foot, but a goal kick is awarded.

    To describe the home side as rampant at the moment doesn't quite cover it.

  19. Double trouble

    Rangers 2-0 Progres Niederkorn

    Sheyi Ojo salutes the crowd after making it two for the Glasgow club.

  20. GOAL RANGERS 2-0 Progres Niederkorn

    Sheyi Ojo

    That's more like it.

    Rangers play a short corner to Ojo. Progres switch off, allowing the man on loan from Liverpool to collect the ball on the edge of the box, turn and arrow a dipping shot into the far corner through a ruck of players.

    Tremendous finish from the 22-year-old. Will that open the floodgates?
