Rangers pulled off a stunning recovery tonight to beat Braga 3-2 at Ibrox, having been 2-0 down with less than half an hour to play.

The Gers had been in patchy form ahead of tonight's game, and faced an in-form Braga side who beat Benfica 1-0 last weekend, meaning this was a tricky tie.

Braga managed to snatch an early lead as Fransergio put the Portuguese side in front, and Abel Ruiz pounced on the hour mark to make it 2-0.

 

Rangers looked dead and buried, started to mount their fight back as Ianis Hagi pulled one back, before Joe Aribo danced his way through the Braga defence to equalise.

Ibrox was already raucous, but the roof flew off the place when Hagi's free kick was deflected in, giving Rangers a 3-2 lead – and it's a lead they held on to.

The focus is of course on playmaker Hagi after his two-goal display, but fellow deadline day arrival Florian Kamberi also had a huge impact.
