Rangers 2 – 0 Brondby
Information about Rangers 2 – 0 Brondby
First-half goals from Leon Balogun and Kemar Roofe saw Rangers beat Brondby 2-0 at Ibrox to keep alive their hopes of progressing to the knockout stages of the Europa League.
Rangers had lost their opening two Group A matches, making this a vital clash for Steven Gerrard’s side, who made the perfect start when Balogun’s powerful header gave them an 18th-minute lead.
Things got even better on the half-hour mark when Roofe tapped home after Alfredo Morelos’ close-range header had been saved, although Rangers needed the intervention of the Video Assistant Referee to confirm that goal after it had initially been ruled out by the referee’s assistant.
As a result, Rangers have moved up to third in the group at the halfway stage, a point behind Sparta Prague in second ahead of their return meeting at Brondby on November 4.

Rangers travel to St Mirren in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday, with the game getting under way at 12.30pm on Sky Sports Football.
