The former Rangers midfielder has also given his take on Steven Gerrard’s side progressing to the Europa League playoff round at the expense of FC Midtjylland.

On Thursday night, Rangers won the second leg of their Europa League Qualifying Third Round 3-1 at Ibrox to progress to the playoff round 7-3 on aggregate.

Also on Thursday night, the Gers secured the services of Wales international midfielder King on a season-long loan deal from Premier League outfit Leicester.
