It was definitely a game of two halves for Rangers tonight in Rotterdam.

They were very poor in the first half, with both Sheyi Ojo and Borna Barisic looking off the pace and clumsy.

Feyenoord took the lead, Rangers saw the rest of the half out and Steven Gerrard’s half-time talk worked wonders.

They came out a different side and Alfredo Morelos – who else – scored the crucial equaliser that would have seen them qualify if the score stayed at 1-0 to Young Boys in the other game.

But Rangers didn’t want to leave anything to chance and Morelos got his second of the game and his 25th of the season to send Gerrard into raptures and Dick Advocaat into despair.

Morelos just can’t stop scoring and there will definitely be teams after him in January. He won’t be sold though. Everyone from Gerrard to Ross Wilson to Dave King have said as much.

In this form he could win Rangers the Premiership and each goal against quality opposition makes him that much more valuable.

There was more drama though. Rangers got a bit excited and pushed too many men forward, letting Feyenoord back in for an equaliser.

They couldn’t find a winner, but Porto found a quickfire double to leave everything to play for in the final game.

It’s slightly disappointing but it’s still a brilliant result that will see Rangers just needing a point from the final group game at home against Young Boys.

Meanwhile, here are the best reactions from the fans to Morelos…
