RANGERS have come a long way in Europe under Steven Gerrard but could be sunk by the Yellow Submarine on Thursday.
Making the Europa League groups was a good achievement but Gers haven't faced a side anywhere near the quality of Villarreal.
Okay, they don't look as good as past sides but have quality players in their line-up such as Carlos Bacca, Gerard Moreno and Santi Cazorla.
Villarreal have made a poor start to La Liga with four points from four games but are usually strong at El Madrigal.
My only complaint is the prices with the Spaniards no bigger than 1-3 at Betfred – and that's been lengthened.
It’s good to hear Gerrard has identified weaknesses in the opposition, who are missing several midfielders, and he says he and won’t sit back. Gers can score if they commit men forward and I’m taking a chance on both to net at 5-4 with William Hill.
With Alfredo Morelos banned Gers will look to Kyle Lafferty who is 21-5 at Unibet to score.
Celtic face familiar opposition after beating Rosenborg in the Champions League qualifiers. Their 3-1 win at Parkhead was more emphatic than the scorelines suggests and I'm backing them again at 1-2 with Ladbrokes.
It was Odsonne Edouard who was the hero back in August with two goals and the Frenchman is 3-1 at Sky Bet to net first if he makes his comeback after injury and evens to score.
