Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos challenges for the ball

Rangers missed a brilliant chance to strengthen their position in Europa League Group G after a sloppy 4-3 defeat to Spartak Moscow on Thursday.

An early Roman Eremenko own goal was followed by strikes from Daniel Candeias and Glenn Middleton as Rangers took the lead three times in a remarkable first half.

Spartak replied through Lorenzo Melgarejo in the 22nd minute and then an own goal from Connor Goldson to trail 3-2 at half-time.

But two goals in 69 seconds from Luiz Adriano and Sofiane Hanni in the second half put Spartak ahead and they held on to get their first win in the group and leave Rangers’ qualification hopes in the balance.
