STEVEN DAVIS said he was proud of his Rangers team-mates after they produced a thrilling comeback win over Royal Antwerp.

Joe Aribo gave Steven Gerrard’s side a first-half lead before two goals in quick succession left the visitors trailing at the break.

Borna Barisic scored twice from the penalty spot and Ryan Kent scored a wonderful solo goal as the Glasgow club sealed a memorable victory.

“It was a bit of a roller-coaster,” Davis said. “It’s difficult to sum up how I feel about the match.

“In the first half I felt that we weren’t quite at it but there were spaces there.

“In the second half we thought if we could exploit that a little bit better with our quality going forward that we would definitely get our chances and that proved to be the case.

“You work so hard to try and get yourself in front so to concede two goals in quick succession was really disappointing. Especially when one is a set-piece and then obviously the penalty.”

Davis added that he was impressed with the way Rangers reacted to falling behind at the end of the first half.

He said: “The most important thing was the reaction after that and we felt we were still well in the game. We felt we could go on and win it.

“Credit to the boys for their attitude and to the subs as well for making an impact.

“At the time I thought [the penalty] was a little bit soft. I think the lad was quite clever in terms of how he played for it and obviously with VAR, the referee has decided it’s a penalty.

“I was a bit disappointed but luckily we went on to create chances ourselves, got a couple of good opportunities and won the game in the end.”
