As *Rangers try to qualify for the Champions League, they will be looking at the Group Stages with eagerness as the potential guaranteed £14m jackpot awaits them if they get past Malmo and onto the next qualifying round.
Never has the need for he Glasgow club been so great to get access to the millions that Europe’s premier competition promises as they have posted losses for the past four years as they went all out to stop Celtic’s bid for ten in a row.
Former Celtic striker, Frank McAvennie was speaking to Football Insider, when he made a claim about the *Rangers board spending even more money that they don’t have , “The pressure is really on now.
“Knowing the Rangers board, they have probably spent the group stage money already.
“I think they had an eye on tonight’s game when playing Dundee but they should have still won.
“Rangers will be a different proposition tonight I’m sure. They just didn’t perform at the weekend.
“They need to start well so the crowd don’t get on their back.
“It’s a hard task but I think they will win. It would be a disaster if they lost.”
And who can argue with him? The Govan club have spent over £40m under Gerrard and only have one trophy to show for it.
The Champions League money MUST be essential to them or they could be forced to sell some prized assets to keep their “investors” happy.
