BEFORE tonight’s UEFA Europa League Round of 32 first leg against SC Braga at Ibrox Stadium, fans can buy a souvenir 84-page matchday programme – with either a stunning blue OR red cover – packed with interviews and features.

Inside issue 26 for the season supporters can read the following:

  • An exclusive, in-depth interview with January loan signing Ianis Hagi. The 21-year-old playmaker discusses his time in Glasgow so far and playing in the Europa League with Rangers having already sampled the Champions League group stage with Genk this season.
  • Interviews with former players Maurice Edu – who remembers scoring a dramatic late winner against Portuguese side Sporting in February 2011 which booked Rangers’ place in the last 16 stage of the Europa League – and Barca Bear Peter McCloy, who recalls the referee blunder in Lisbon in 1971 – again against Sporting – that nearly cost the Light Blues European glory.
  • A new feature on the Rangers Women’s squad, with midfielder Kirsten Reilly reflecting on her career so far as she gets ready for the start of the 2020 SWPL season.
  • An Academy interview with Kai Kennedy, who recently made his first team debut in January against Stranraer in the Scottish Cup.
  • Manager Steven Gerrard and captain James Tavernier’s programme notes as they get ready for another massive European night under the Ibrox lights.
  • A fascinating archive feature from club historian David Mason, who looks back at Rangers’ first European match against OGC Nice in 1956.
  • An interview with Saint PHNX brothers – and big Bluenoses – Alan and Stevie Jukes, who are currently on tour in Europe after the recent launch of their band’s debut album DDMN. The Wishaw lads – who will be playing TRNSMT this summer – came to Ibrox for photos and to chat about their love for the Gers and their hopes for the year ahead.

Also in tonight’s UEFA Europa League 84-page issue there is a tricky quiz to test your football knowledge, a Hall of Fame feature on club legend Terry Butcher, Oppo Focus and Match Fast Facts, On This Day and a Junior Gers section for young fans, plus so much more. Price just £3.50, don’t miss it!
