Michael Beale will hope some of his recent signings can showcase their attacking prowess when Rangers face Kilmarnock at Ibrox on Wednesday in their Champions League qualifier, but Kenny Miller warns they must also improve defensively.
Rangers went behind League Cup opponents Park End within 12 seconds as Richie Parker’s clearance flew straight into their goal, almost taking them further behind before Ste Docherty levelled up by scoring from a free-kick.
But the Rangers won’t give up easily. Zordon attempts to contact them via the Morpher, but they remain too scared to answer him. He assures them they will gain back their confidence by dismantling the Crystal of Nightmares.

As the inning progressed, however, it became clear that nothing would stop the Orioles. Even Manny Alexander — whom manager Johnson hadn’t used as a pitcher prior to this game due to principle — became too tired and lost control. After walking Hamilton to load up bases for him to hit into two outs at once and giving up three runs with only two outs left he ended up giving up three more runs with only two outs still available – an outrageous sequence which continued for 56 minutes!
Rangers’ season in the Scottish Premiership has started off poorly, leaving fans craving an immediate lift. Qualifying for the Champions League group stage would provide much-needed morale boost as well as further prove Giovanni van Bronckhorst has assembled an effective squad capable of competing at such levels.

Chris Sutton of BT Sport believes former Ranger striker Miller and Chris Sutton (current BT Sport pundit) can help spark Rangers into action for their play off match against Servette on August 22/23 and 29/30 respectively.
If the Gers reach this stage they should be seeded ahead of Celtic due to their co-efficient ranking and thus avoid playing Club Brugge or Sporting CP. They might instead find themselves drawn against one of Qarabag FK, Viktoria Plzen or Dinamo Zagreb instead.
Miller offers hope to the Blueshirts as they aim to improve their defensive performances this season, who is shaping up as a top pro prospect. His reach, skating ability and physicality could make him a reliable defender that makes an impactful contribution – something the Rangers may need from him this season.
Ibrox will look to rebound from their narrow loss against Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership when they take on Swiss outfit Servette on Wednesday. Former Gers striker Miller believes Michael Beale’s new signings can meet this test.

At present, Glasgow Rangers sit second in their league – four points behind Celtic – and stand to gain financially by qualifying for Champions League group stage play. If successful in making it past the first qualifying round, UEFA will pay them $15.5 million as a reward; an achievement which would mark an important step forward for an organization which hasn’t competed at Europe’s premier tier for 10 years.
After spending half a billion dollars in five consecutive losing seasons and engaging in massive spending sprees, Rangers management fired manager Chris Woodward on Monday. Third base coach Tony Beasley will serve as interim manager until next year’s full-time managerial position can be filled by another manager.
Rangers have been drawn into a challenging Champions League group featuring Liverpool, Ajax and Napoli – providing an excellent opportunity for them to make an impressionful statement about themselves in Europe.
The Rangers require a manager who embraces baseball’s evolving era of data-driven strategy. Their ideal candidate should collaborate closely with both their front office and pitching coach when setting lineups and strategies, rather than be resistant to such collaboration. Old school managers might cringe at this approach; but times have changed; teams now win with greater insight into their players.
