Michael Beale has trolled Willem II's ultras after the group set off fireworks outside Rangers' hotel before their Europa League clash with the Dutch outfit.

Footage appeared online of the fans pulling off a pyro stunt in the dead of night while Ibrox players and management were trying to get some sleep.

The lack of shut eye obviously never affected the Light Blues though as they romped to a 4-0 victory in third round qualifying of the Europa League.

Goals from James Tavernier, Ryan Kent, Filip Helander and Connor Goldson sealed the win for Rangers and coach Beale was quick to hit back at the ultras for their prank.

He posted footage of the fireworks from his hotel room on Instagram and wrote: “Nice firework display from the Willem II fans at 2.30am last night."

The official Rangers Twitter account also saw the funny side as they shared a Still Game clip in response to the fireworks.

The video showed the character Vince sitting in the Clansman as he says: "Quiet the night, boys. I like it quiet."
