Rangers may have one foot in the Europa League play-offs but Steven Gerrard has warned his players they only have to look at Celtic to realise the pitfalls that lie in wait if they take their eye off the ball.

"From that aspect (Celtic's defeat) is very disappointing.

Celtic saw their Champions League group stage hopes crumble after suffering a shock 4-3 defeat to Romanian champions Cluj at Parkhead and they will now join the Rangers in the Europa League.

A rise to 17th could yet see the top two in this year's Premiership start at the second qualifying round next term and Gerrard admits it is crucial the country's top sides do their bit in Europe.

The Ibrox side go into the second leg of their third round qualifier against Midtjylland with a 4-2 advantage thanks to last week's impressive win in Denmark.

There was certainly no joy to be taken from Celtic's flop for Gerrard who acknowledged the damaging effect failure in Europe can have on the country's coefficient.

With Scotland ranked 20th in Uefa's ranking system, Gers and fellow Europa League competitors Aberdeen and Kilmarnock were all forced to kick off at the first qualifying round this season, as were Celtic in the continent's premier competition.
