However, Rangers were transformed after the break as they put in a brilliant display.

Alfredo Morelos and Steven Davis both hit the back of the net in the second half to provide Rangers with an impressive win.

 

And Kamara suggests that Gerrard’s words at half-time helped Rangers to show their best.

“You know what ‘have some bravery, go out there and play our stuff’,” the midfielder said, when asked what Gerrard had told the Rangers squad at the break.

“We showed it in the first leg and hopefully we can keep it on going now.”

Rangers’ win over Porto has pushed them to the verge of qualification out of their group in the Europa League.
