COPENHAGEN manager Stale Solbakken last night revealed his injured players had received treatment at the Rangers training ground before romping to a shock win over Celtic.

Solbakken’s side beat their Scottish rivals 3-1 in the second leg of the Europa League last 32 tie at Parkhead and won 4-2 on aggregate to go through to the last 16.

The Dane recalled how the Superliga champions had met Ibrox manager Steven Gerrard, whose team defeated Braga in Portugal in the same competition on Wednesday night to progress, ahead of the match in Glasgow.

And the former Wolves boss admitted he had watched a video of the Govan club in action in the Betfred Cup final in December and their win at Celtic Park before the winter break.

“Some of our injured players went to Rangers training ground for treatment today and met Steven Gerrard,” he said. “I think he was hoping to meet us in the next round.

“I watched the League Cup Final and the last league game between them and they are two evenly matched sides. So it would be just as tough for us, if not tougher.”

Solbakken added: “It was small margins tonight. They could have killed us off in the first half last week and we could have scored the penalty.

“They had us a little bit on the ropes later in the first-half. The second-half was a very even game, it could have gone either way. We are very proud that we came to a stadium like this and scored three goals.”
