Rangers make Uefa Cup semi-finals

Steven Whittaker

Rangers have booked their place in the semi-finals of the Uefa Cup with a 2-0 victory over Sporting Lisbon.

The first leg in the two-part quarter-final ended 0-0, so Rangers were looking for the win when the teams met again in Portugal.

Jean-Claude Darcheville opened the scoring for them, with substitute Steven Whittaker getting the second in injury time.

Rangers face Italian side Fiorentina in their next big match.

Fiorentina got through by beating Dutch side PSV Eindhoven 2-0 on the night, for a 3-1 overall victory.

The other semi will be contested by Russian side Zenit St Petersburg and Bayern Munich from Germany.
