5 things we spotted at Rangers training as Alfredo Morelos and Co turn rugby stars

The long delay between the two matches has had a significant impact on the Rangers squad.
The likes of Sheyi Ojo, Wes Foderingham and Florian Kamberi have left the club but cannot be replaced by any of Gerrard’s summer signings.
That’s led to a reprieve of sorts for winger Jordan Jones, who has been added to the Europa League squad for this match.
With not much of a pool for his manager to choose from, could the former Kilmarnock man be given one last chance to save his Ibrox career?
Rangers took something of a break from the norm as they worked on the pitch at the BayArena.
The squad indulged in a bit of throwing rather than kicking in a bibs vs non-bibs training exercise.
The likes of Jones and Greg Stewart were in the non-bib team while Joe Aribo and captain James Tavernier were on the opposing side. Bibs are always an indication of who might be starting as well.
With VAR in operation for European games though, Gerrard will be keen for his players to keep their hands as far away from the ball as possible on Thursday night…
It’s a fairly safe bet that the Colombian will start against Leverkusen, given he’s the only fit striker available.
The signings of Kemar Roofe and Cedric Itten have raised further questions about El Bufalo’s future, with interest from Lille and West Brom.
Ahead of the match though Gerrard assured Morelos’ focus is entirely on the task at hand.
He said: “Alfredo is focused on the game tomorrow. He is fit to play and wants to play.”
Can Rangers take the heat?
Temperatures topped 30 degrees in Leverkusen, and the Rangers players were clearly feeling the heat as they stopped for a well-earned drinks break.
They look to be facing a similarly sweltering experience on Thursday with a 7pm local time kick-off, and while there will be cooling breaks it could be a draining evening.
However, the hosts haven’t played in nearly a month after the end of the Bundesliga season and if Rangers can stay in the tie they may be able to use the conditions to their advantage as legs get heavy toward the end.
Steven Gerrard will be under no illusions about the size of task that faces his team.
They have to score at least three times against one of Germany’s finest teams, and that will only be enough if they can keep Kai Havertz and co quiet at the other end.
The Liverpool legend was known for big European moments as a player though, and is quickly forging a similar reputation as a manager.
Will he have something special up his sleeve for at the BayArena.
