Rangers set up Parma clash
Gabriel Amato: Made it 3-0 to book a clash with Parma
Glasgow 3-0 (7-1 agg) FC Haka
Rangers strolled past Finnish part-timers FC Haka on Wednesday to book a Champions' League clash against Italian giants Parma.
Goals from Rod Wallace, Jonatan Johansson and Gabriel Amato secured a 3-0 (7-1 agg) victory as the Scottish outfit cruised to an easy win.
Rangers welcomed back Michael Mols for his Ibrox debut after the Dutchman, who scored twice in the first leg, missed Saturday's league opener through injury.
Defender Craig Moore retained his place in defence, despite his humiliating substitution at the weekend, while Finn Johansson was recalled to form a three-man strike force.
Mols had the ball in the net after just four minutes only to be denied by offside and then went close to repeating the feat at the near post from a Jorg Albertz cross.
But it took Rangers only 14 minutes to move in front, when Mols combined with Barry Ferguson who fed a close at hand Wallace to fire low past Andras Vilnrotter.
Amoruso's back header was clawed away by Vilnrotter, but Johansson was lurking to nudge home a close range effort to add to his goal as a substitute in his native Finland.
Rangers suffered a blow five minutes before the interval however when Arthur Numan was substituted seemingly through injury with Tony Vidmar taking his place at left full-back.
With all meaningful work done, Rangers replaced Mols at the break to offer the skilful but erratic Amato another opportunity to impress and frustrate in equal measure.
Oleg Ivanov struck a powerful shot from distance against the inside of a post in a show of defiance from Haka, that was to prove only a momentary gesture.
Rangers should have moved three ahead after 57 minutes when a Vidmar cross eluded Wallace only to set up Amato with an open goal at the far post yet he picked out Lasse Karjalainen on the line.
But the third was inevitable and when Dariusz Adamczuk's burst resulted in a cross Amato header firmly into the net.
