Roaring success: James Tavernier celebrates his goal

There was joy and despair for the Old Firm in the Europa League last night.

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard was all smiles after his side claimed a 3-1 victory over Rapid Vienna.

But the mood was very different in the Celtic camp where manager Brendan Rodgers was critical of his side's defending in their 3-1 defeat at Red Bull Salzburg. James Forrest was sent off as the Hoops let a first-half lead slip and Ulsterman Rodgers admitted: "In the second half we gave away disappointing goals, that was the frustration for us."

After seeing his side storm to the top of Group G, Gerrard said: "That's the Rangers I want to see. I was blown away by my players' performance, we were excellent."

Chelsea beat Hungarian champions Vidi 1-0 while Arsenal recorded a 3-0 victory against Qarabag.
