FATIH TERIM will demand improvement from his Galatasaray players when they face Rangers after seeing the Turkish giants held in the Istanbul derby on Sunday.

Galatasaray head to Ibrox for a one-leg play-off round shoot-out that will determine who qualifies the Europa League group stages this season.

Steven Gerrard has insisted that Terim's side will be favourites to progress but the legendary Gala gaffer was frustrated with the performance against Fenerbahce.

Terim said: "We were close to scoring many times, but that's not good enough and we know we have to do better.

"Obviously, the atmosphere in the derby wasn't quite the same, but I still wanted to see us play better and move the ball quicker.

"We couldn't find a way through and the players know they will need to do more this week against a very difficult opponent. I will turn all my attention to Rangers now. The Europa League is very important to us in many ways and of course, we will play our strongest team.

"At the moment, we are playing every three or four days and that can be a factor. But we just have to deal with it. It always hurts when you don't win a derby game and we have a chance to put it right this week in Glasgow."
