Brazilian Juninho has revealed how Lyon´s humiliating home defeat to Rangers acted as the catalyst for Wednesday night´s 3-0 Champions League triumph at Ibrox.

The French champions were left reeling after slumping to a 3-0 defeat at the Stade Gerland back in October as Rangers romped to one of their best European victories, but Lyon exacted their revenge in devastating style in the return match.

"We were well worthy victors," he said. "We said that we hadn´t missed out on qualifying for three years and we certainly didn´t want to miss out here. Pride was a huge factor for us. When you look back at the match in Lyon, we must have had 25 or 26 attempts on goal yet we lost the three goals."
