Smith not giving up on Europe

Rangers boss Walter Smith is refusing to give up hope of Champions League progression despite failing to overcome Unirea Urziceni on Wednesday night. The Scottish champions conceded a late equaliser in a 1-1 draw in Romania to leave themselves at the bottom of the Group G table. Rangers, who lost 4-1 to Unirea at Ibrox two weeks ago, must now win their final two games against Stuttgart and Sevilla and hope that Unirea can do them a favour in order to reach the last 16. "It was a very good performance and we more than made amends for the last game," said Smith. "But it was really disappointing to give away a goal so late in the game. Victory would have put us back into at least having an opportunity to qualify. "It's going to be far more difficult now but we just have to hope we can get ourselves together. "We can put pressure on by winning our home games."
