Video: Steven Gerrard Praises ‘Outstanding’ Sheyi Ojo and ‘Brilliant’ Rangers Display

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has singled-out Sheyi Ojo for praise following the winger’s ‘outstanding’ display against FC Midtjylland tonight.

Having won 4-2 away from home against the Danish side, the Gers were always big favourites to progress through to the next round and did so in comfortable fashion by claiming a 3-1 win at Ibrox.

In his typical fashion, Alfredo Morelos bagged two poacher’s goals but Ojo was arguably the star of the show, as he set-up both of Morelos’s strikes as well as claiming a goal for himself.

The 22-year-old – spending the season-loan in Glasgow from Gerrard’s former side Liverpool – seems to be in a battle with Jordan Jones to be the club’s first-choice left-winger and, judging by his manager’s reaction, he did himself no harm with his display tonight:

Rangers will now face Legia Warsaw in the Europa League’s playoff round, with the Glasgow giants bidding to reach the competition’s group stages for the second successive season.

But how crucial could Ojo be to Rangers this season?
