The Rangers won in Ibrox a victory over Midtjylland

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard "is really looking forward" to an "enemy" first leg against Legia Warsaw in the play-off round of the Europa League.

Gerrard's side are just 180 minutes from the group stage after defeating Midtjylland 7-3.

Rangers, who have lost just twice in 20 European games, are traveling to Poland next Thursday to play Legia.

"Legia have a lot of experience, so they deserve respect," said Gerrard.

"I think they've made a lot of goals lately and we're going into a hostile environment outside of home, but we're really looking forward to this game."

The Rangers have been in superb form this season in European competition, scoring 19 goals and conceding only three goals in six games.

Alfredo Morelos scored twice and Sheyi Ojo scored twice in the comfortable victory against Denmark's Midtjylland in Ibrox on Thursday.

And Gerrard is convinced that the strength of his team is the key to his team's strong and consistent start to the season.

"I think we look very strong in terms of numbers and staff," he told Rangers TV. "Players need to stay up to date with numbers and names.

"The players are in a good place, the mentality and hunger are there, they are really interested in keeping a constant run going."
