Liverpool vs Rangers LIVE: Champions League Result, Full Time Result and Reaction

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits the team lacks confidence

In the clash between the clubs from the banks of the Mersey and the Clyde, the real winner was Trent. Pressured right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold put Liverpool on the expected path to victory. Perhaps he made a quick transition from scapegoat to top dog, and certainly his celebration of a cathartic goal had an air of justification.

Whether his brilliant free-kick was an eloquent response to criticism or simply a display of the gifts that make him a unique right-back, it gave him respite on an evening that ended not with another investigation but with a standing ovation.

It was a relaxing affair for Liverpool too, as Mohamed Salah added a second with casual ease. A continental season that began at the nadir of their worst performance under Jurgen Klopp now appears on course to end somewhere in the knockout stages. Napoli’s win over Ajax helps Liverpool qualify if not win Group A and they can plan the return trip to Ibrox next week as they need more points in the Premier League than in the Champions League.
