Rangers manager Walter Smith has every confidence his patched-up team will come through Thursday night´s tie against Fiorentina with their hopes of reaching the UEFA Cup final still alive.

A long, hard season and the pursuit of four trophies is finally beginning to take its toll, with several key players injured or suspended ahead of the last-four clash at Ibrox.

Smith´s squad will be stretched to the limit but he refused to be downbeat about his lack of options. He said: "It makes it easier to pick the team. The fewer players you have, the easier it is to select a team. We have looked at the opposition and then we will look at our own squad and select from there."
