• Celtic eliminated after 4-3 defeat to Cluj at Parkhead • Rangers face FC Midtjylland in Europa League on Thursday Steven Gerrard has said that Celtic’s Champions League exit should be a warning to his Rangers squad.

“From that aspect [Celtic’s defeat] is very disappointing.



Celtic crashed out after suffering a shock 4-3 defeat to Romanian champions Cluj at Parkhead while Rangers have their own Europa League ambitions to focus on and will now look complete the job against FC Midtjylland and move a step closer to the group stages after last week’s 4-2 win in Denmark.



With Scotland ranked 20th in Uefa’s ranking system, Rangers and fellow Europa League competitors Aberdeen and Kilmarnock were all forced to kick off at the first qualifying round this season, as were Celtic in the continent’s premier competition.

And Gerrard wants his men to take note of Celtic’s fate and take appropriate action, saying: “What it shows last night is that European ties are never over, even when you get a positive result in the first leg.

A rise to 17th could yet see the top two in this year’s Premiership start at the second qualifying round next term and Gerrard admits it is crucial the country’s top sides do their bit in Europe.

Scott Arfield restored their advantage to two goals and Gerrard now expects his men to finish the job at Ibrox.
