Rangers' Champions League hopes were shattered as they crashed out of the competition 2-1 on aggregate at the hands of Malmo after being reduced to nine men in the qualifier in Sweden.

Steven Whittaker and Madjid Bougherra were both shown straight red cards, before Malmo's Ricardinho was also dismissed by Russian referee Vladislav Bezborodov on a night of drama at the Swedbank stadium.

Nikica Jelavic cancelled out Daniel Larsson's strike from last week's clash in Glasgow but it was Jiloan Hamad who had the final say, with Rangers forced to settle for a Europa League play-off spot instead of taking a step closer to joining Europe's elite in the Champions League group stages.
