Thomas Hitzlsperger has warned Champions League opponents Rangers that he and Stuttgart have regained the belief which brought them the Bundesliga title last season.

The former Aston Villa midfielder is a key figure in the Stuttgart team and was as dismayed as anyone when their season began in lacklustre fashion, but Stuttgart made it four wins in a row with Saturday´s 4-1 victory away to Eintracht Frankfurt.

Hitzlsperger said, after Stuttgart turned on the style: "We are back to our old strength because we believe in ourselves again. After the terrible start we were determined to come back. The results have given us new self-confidence. Many players are back and therefore we can play like this."
