So Rangers lost. I didn't see the game, (a busy Surgery and then a planning meeting for events later this week and over the weekend) , but by all accounts . They did not embarrass themselves, and nor Scotland either. And it has to be said that it is good news for Scottish Football that they made it, coming not that long after Celtic were finalists in the same competition.
There are many things I struggle with about how Rangers are perceived as a club, not least of which the sectarianism of a thankfully dwindling band of their support, but they are to be congratulated for getting this far and for holding Scotland's flag high on the European stage, something for which all of us, even lowly Dunfermline fans like myself, will benefit from in the long run as Scotland's game improves in quality and in self confidence.
