RANGERS were beaten tonight by Bayer Leverkusen in their UEFA Europa League, Last 16, first-leg tie here at Ibrox.
Steven Gerrard’s side were competitive throughout the 90 minutes against the side currently sitting fifth in the Bundesliga, but a first-half penalty from Kai Havertz and then second-half strikes from Charles Aranguiz and Leon Bailey either side of a George Edmundson counter means Gers’ incredible 16-game unbeaten home run at Ibrox is at an end.
From the side which defeated Ross County on Sunday, Steven Gerrard named two changes, with James Tavernier and Scott Arfield coming into the side in place of Matt Polster and Ianis Hagi.
In front of a typically fervent Ibrox atmosphere, both sides enjoyed spells on the ball in the early periods, although chances for either proved not to be forthcoming.
