Steven warns of dangers

Steven Gerrard says Celtic's Champions League exit should be a warning to Rangers.

The Hoops saw their group stage hopes crumble after suffering a shock 4-3 defeat to Romanian champions Cluj at Parkhead.

Gers have Europa League ambitions to focus on and will now look complete the job against Midtjylland tonight.

Last week's 4-2 victory in Denmark has put the Light Blues in the driving seat but Gerrard wants his men to take note of Celtic's fate and take appropriate action.

He said: "What last night shows is that European ties are never over, even when you get a positive result in the first leg.

"Some of these teams that people don't know much about - Cluj from Romania, for example, or Midtjylland from Denmark - they carry a huge threat.

"They're so desperate for financial reasons to progress, like most of us, so my players need to take note of last night and make sure we deal with our second leg much better."
