Rangers 2 0 Sparta Prague: Giovanni Van Bronckhorsts Side Into Knockout Stages With Victory

A brace from Alfredo Morelos gave Giovanni van Bronckhorst a debut victory as Rangers manager and sent his side into the Europa League knockout round at the expense of Sparta Prague.

Morelos swept home in the first half to give Rangers control early on, before capitalising on a bizarre mistake by Sparta's Filip Panak after the break.
