EUROPEAN football makes a return to Ibrox tonight with Maribor the visitors, and to mark the occasion there will be a bumper souvenir programme on sale outside the stadium in the build-up to kick-off.
Inside, fans can read programme notes from Rangers manager Steven Gerrard and captain James Tavernier, who also answers a range of questions from fans in the popular ‘On The Spot’ feature.
Winger Glenn Middleton also chats about his recent move from the youth wing at the Hummel Training Centre to the first-team dressing room.
It’s been an exciting season so far for the talented teen and he hopes to feature against Maribor having gained Europa League experience against Shkupe and Osijek in previous rounds.
