Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst: “It’s a very good result for us against a big team in Europe. We wanted to take a result back with us to Glasgow for a good game next week. I think we achieved that with the two-goal difference. I’m really proud of the performance the players have shown today. We also know it’s only halfway, there is still another game to be played, but to come here and score four away goals in Europe is a very good achievement. I’m more than happy with the result and especially the performance. We also presented well as a club. We played against a quality side, got a good result and we’re going to have a good game next week at a full Ibrox.”
