Rangers boss Steven Gerrard issued a hands-off warning to rivals that star striker Alfredo Morelos is not for sale after the Colombian's double kept their Europa League destiny in their own hands.

Morelos struck twice in the second-half to secure a point in a 2-2 draw at Feyenoord, which means as long as Gerrard's men avoid defeat in their final game against Young Boys, they will reach the last-32.

"Do you believe me now? He's not for sale. He's not for sale at any price!" said Gerrard of Morelos.

Meanwhile, Neil Lennon's Celtic secured top spot in Group E with a 3-1 win over Rennes at Celtic Park, which was confirmed when Lazio helped them out by defeating second-placed Cluj 1-0.
