    Just turned it on in the second half and Rangers look well on top. Soft Penalty, but when you tug a shirt the ref has a decision to make.

    Haven't watched it but when a diehard like Chick Young says there was a big suspicion of offside at their goal and he thought Morelos dived that tells you something.

    CS you're saying it was a penalty, can't argue with that as I've not seen any of it. Heard their keepers been dodgy?

    Another penalty for them in a European game.

    There was a tug, when Morelos is getting clear from the defender but its again nit enough for anyone to go down.

    The Maribor defence is shocking.

    Hibs still 0-0, it would be a good result if they nick it.

    One thing I noticed about Rangers in the 45 minutes of the Osijek game is they are very easily got at, their midfield don't offer much protection to the back four who seem well disciplined tbf but Maribor like Osijek are getting from their box to the Rangers end with only a couple passes forward.

    3-1 Rangers, game over and should be tie over as Rangers will score against that defence next week.

    Osijek were a better side.

    Maribor are a decent footballing side but very poor at the back.

    Rangers were much the better team in the second half and their overall work rate is impressive. They chased and harried the whole game. The boy Coulibilay will prove to be a good signing, especially in the hustle and bustle of domestic games.

    I think that third goal takes Rangers through as I see them scoring at least one over there.

    Good result for Rangers, decent result for Hibs.

    Sportsound telling the world the first was offside, the second a dive and the third was put into the net by the players hand.

    If so, that's real luck.

    Scottish clubs finally making a fist of it in Europe. Rangers should go through and Hibs are in a decent position also. Regardless of next week with Celtic where I still think we can do it there is a small chance we could get 3 sides into group stages of European competition.

    We'll go through whether it's the CL or the Europa. Rangers will go through if they beat Maribor, which they should now and Hibs have a better chance against Dinamo Minsk than they would have had in Zenit if they can see off Molde.

    Just seen a poorish video of this. First one looks offside to me but could be close. Second one was a dive but the defender did pull his shirt as well. Similar to Windsass against the sheep. Gerrard has clearly instructed his players to hit the deck at all times, not that he needed to as most clubs do this anyway. Third was a handball and the video here shows it quite well. Hit the upper part of his arm and would't have went in otherwise. I'm also not convinced their goal was what the fella was intending but if he was then it was some strike.

    Not sure where the offside is in that first goal and the second was definately a penalty.

    1st goal Onside- winger in line with last defender at time ball was kicked; 2nd- defender tried to defend with left hand then switched to right, definitely tugged shirt but light on for penalty; 3rd- wasnt hand to ball so goal should stand

    From the video you can't see whether that's offside or not. Morelos goes down easily, but on review he's pulled his shirt which is a foul. Third goal is a shoulder for me.
