Rangers fans are still raving about how good an atmosphere there was inside Ibrox last night.
Steven Gerrard’s men continued their push for the Europa League group stages with a 3-1 victory over Maribor in the first leg of their third round qualifier.
Rangers knew it was going to be a tough game against a Slovenian side that contested the Champions League group stages last season.
But one away goal aside, it was the perfect night for Rangers – and they head to Slovenia for next week’s second leg knowing that even a defeat could send them through to the playoff stage.
Ibrox was packed for the game – Gerrard’s sixth competitive match since taking over as manager in the summer – and those who were in attendance are still raving about the atmosphere:

So we had some negativity about cutting the mankys allowcation and people saying it could effect the atmosphere, if you seen it last night and think of the team being the other lot it will be bouncing in Ibrox when it comes around

Honestly don't believe that many other teams (if any) can match the Ibrox atmosphere last night. Full stadium absolutely rocking for 90 minutes. Unreal. https://t.co/YzlXr2UrOr

Waited a long time to see ibrox like that last night. Wee Morelos gets it tight but he was unplayable at times, send on Slovenia with the troops Thursday to hopefully finish it off ✈️ 🐻 🇸🇮

You get the idea.
Rangers will play St Mirren on Sunday at 3pm in their next Scottish Premiership match before going to Slovenia next week to close out the job.
Rangers fans – how did you enjoy last night’s game?
