Rangers' Champions League qualifying campaign came to an early end, losing 2-1 on aggregate to Malmo. Coming into the second leg already down 1-0, their cause wasn't helped when Steven Whittaker decided to respond to a poor challenge in the 18th minute by pegging the offender with the ball. Right in front of the ref.
He was shown a straight red for that and though Rangers finally got a goal five minutes later. But, the comeback wouldn't last, as they were reduced to nine men when Madjid Bougherra was shown a straight red of his own in the 66th minute and Malmo took advantage of the favorable numbers by scoring in the 80th minute.
