Charlie Adam helped Rangers claim a 2-1 win in their Champions League group F opener against Stuttgart, while making a point of his own to manager Walter Smith.

The midfielder paid the price for a poor performance in a qualifier against FK Zeta back in July and his involvement since then had been limited to a cameo role in the return leg in Montenegro.

He was thrown back into the top team at Ibrox and made the most of the opportunity by cancelling out Mario Gomez´s opener before Jean-Claude Darcheville secured the win from the penalty spot.
