Jul 6, 2017-

Rangers suffered one of the worst defeats in their 145-year history on Tuesday after part-timers Progres Niederkorn sent them spinning out of the Europa League qualifiers with a 2-0 win in Luxembourg. Rangers, the 54-times champions of Scotland, won the first leg in Glasgow 1-0 last week but were undone by second-half strikes from Emmanuel Francoise and Sebastien Thill as Niederkorn recorded their first win in 14 European games. Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha, who brought in eight new players in a bid to close the gap on last season’s runaway champions Celtic, described the defeat as “unthinkable” and said it was the worst result of his managerial career.
