As Rangers prepare for their match tonight against Braga, many fans are looking back on European nights gone by. 

One of the Ibrox classics that fans are remembering was from last season when Rangers took on Rapid Vienna in the UEFA Europa League group stages. The match placed Rangers at the top of Group G, though they would failed to qualify after all six games were played.

The match ended shortly after Alfredo Morelos scored a late goal to seal the Gers’ victory.

But footage of the goal, shared on Twitter by Rangers fan Michael Seafarer, had supporters focusing on a different player. They couldn’t help but marvel at the ingenuity of Daniel Candeias in the build-up to the goal. The footage shows Candeias charge down the cleared ball, winning it off the Rapid Vienna defender before back-heeling it into the path of Morelos.

Candeias left Rangers in the summer for Genclerbirligi. In response to the post, these Rangers fans praised him, claiming that they would take him back instantly.

Would Danny Candeias start for this Rangers team?

Yes

Yes

No

No

What do we think?

This season, Candeias has scored three goals and registered six assists in 21 league appearances.

While the fans want him back, the fact that Rangers sold him for £650,000 less than his market value suggests that Steven doesn’t rate him as highly as the supporters do. Candeias was worth £900,000 at the time but was sold for just £250,000.

He is still valued at the same price at the time of writing.
