Rangers left with work to do to ensure Europa League progress
  • Home draw against Aris secures Conference League insurance
  • McCausland comes off the bench to level the scores
  • Rangers face tough task away at Betis

Ross McCausland marked his debut goal for Rangers, securing their place in continental football until 2024. However, a Europa League draw against Aris Limassol raises the possibility of the Ibrox side dropping into the Conference League.

McCausland hits equaliser but Europa League hopes still in the balance for Rangers

The first half saw Shavy Babicka elude a square defence to round Jack Butland and put Aris in the lead, exposing a lacklustre performance from the hosts.

In the second half, substitute Ross McCausland levelled the score by striking low off the post from the right. While a victory would have ensured Europa League progress for Rangers, the top two slots are still contested by Real Betis, Rangers, and Sparta Prague.

Despite the draw, Rangers are guaranteed to finish no lower than third, which grants them a parachute into the Conference League. The upcoming challenging fixture against Betis will play a crucial role in determining their final standing in the competition.

Betting Implications

Rangers have guaranteed European football in the second half of the season, however, if they are to progress into the knock-out stages of the Europa League they face a tough task against a good Betis side. At the time of writing,bet365 have Rangers as 3/1 second favourites to win the group and also have them as second favourites to qualify. Bettors need to decide whether they feel that Rangers have enough to get a result against Betis.
