Rangers bounced back from domestic defeat by securing a one-goal first-leg advantage over 10-man Servette in Champions League qualifying.
Labelled a “mega game” by Michael Beale, his pumped players delivered an electric opening following the weekend loss at Kilmarnock.
James Tavernier netted a composed penalty before Cyriel Dessers bundled in his first goal for the club in the opening 15 minutes.
The wasteful hosts could have effectively killed the tie, but the depleted Swiss visitors pulled one back out of nowhere just before the break when Dessers’ handball – spotted by the VAR – allowed Chris Bedia to slam in a spot-kick.
