Former Scotland defender praises Rangers ‘fabulous’ Europa League result

Former Aberdeen defender Willy Miller has said Rangers’ 2-2 draw against Villarreal was a fabulous result, despite it not being their best performance.

The Spanish side took the lead in the first minute through Carlos Bacca, before Scott Arfield got the Gers back level on 67 minutes. However, parity only lasted for two minutes, with Gerard putting Los Amarillos back in the lead just two minutes later.

Northern Ireland international Kyle Lafferty saved the day for Steven Gerrard’s side, netting a 76th-minute equaliser to their Europa League campaign off to an unbeaten start after a seven-year absence from European football, a result which left former Scotland defender Willy Miller delighted with the result:

“It’s a fabulous result, particularly having not played that well, but having moments and almost winning it towards the end,” Willy Miller told the BBC.

“There are positive aspects there but I’m sure Gerrard will be looking at the defensive side and knowing that game could’ve been out of their reach early in the second half.”

Rangers’ next Europa League clash is on October 4 against Austrian side Rapid Vienna
