Chris Sutton's instant reaction as Rangers book place in Europa League last-32 – originally posted on Sportslens.com

Rangers secured a 1-1 draw against Young Boys to book their place in the round of 32 of the Europa League.

Alfredo Morelos put weekend’s disappointment behind him to open the scoring 30 minutes into the game, but a Borna Barisic own goal meant the visitors left with a point.

Despite the draw, Steven Gerrard’s men booked a spot in the knockout stages, and will hope to get a favourable opposition when the draws are made on Monday.

Celtic legend Chris Sutton was impressed with Rangers and particularly Morelos, reacting thus to the result on Twitter:

It’s the first time since 2010-11 that Rangers will be playing in Europe beyond Christmas, and Morelos 14th goal of the competition – the most of any player – was crucial to their progress.

Ryan Jack will miss the first-leg in February after picking up a second yellow card in stoppage-time, and that was perhaps the only disappointment of the night.
