STEVEN GERRARD has called for other Scottish clubs to play their part in boosting the co-efficient as Rangers continue to raise the profile of our game in Europe.

The Scottish FA confirmed this week that UEFA had granted the SPFL a fifth European berth for next term.

Scotland will now have two teams in the qualifying rounds for the Champions League, two in the Europa League qualifiers and one in the early stages of the new Conference League.

Rangers have had a significant impact on the co-efficient over the last three seasons and are well on course to reach the Europa League knockout rounds once again.

The Gers beat Lech Poznan on Thursday night and Gerrard said: "We are all very proud here at Rangers, the job we've done from a European point of view since we've came in.

"But we need to continue and push and keep improving, ourselves and everyone else who is representing the country from a European point of view.

"It is fantastic for the country that there is extra places but at the same time all the teams have to continue to keep trying as well to try to maintain those positions because as quickly as they come or hard as we battle for them to come, they can be taken away as well."
