AS Monaco 0 - 1 Rangers FC
Wed 20 September 20:45
Stade Louis II, Monaco

Rangers FC pulled off a spirited backs-to-the-wall victory against AS Monaco in the Stade Louis II to storm clear at the top of the UEFA Champions League Group D table after two games.
Dutch winger Giovanni Van Bronckhurst scored the all-important goal with a brilliant Brazilian-style swerving drive from 30 metres after only eight minutes.

Bravehearts
But German goalkeeper Stefan Klos was one of the main heroes as he kept out the French champions with a series of important saves.
More great news for Scotland's Bravehearts came in the shape Galatasaray SK's shock 3-0 defeat at the hands of SK Sturm Graz - the team who Rangers thumped 5-0 in their opening match last week.
