Rangers manager Walter Smith admits reaching the UEFA Cup final would be one of the proudest moments of his career after taking another step closer to the Manchester showcase.

The Ibrox club booked their place in the last four of the competition for the first time - and their first European semi-final for 36 years - after defeating Sporting Lisbon 2-0 in their own back yard on Thursday.

"It will be [one of my proudest moments] if we manage to get to the final," Smith said. "I´ve been proud of the team all season and the way they´ve handled the pressure of having to win these games, especially the qualifiers for the Champions League."
