 'We'll be ready' - Dessers insists that Rangers players can handle the PSV Eindhoven crowd

Rangers forward Cyriel Dessers has revealed his side's readiness for the unfriendly atmosphere that they would encounter in their  UEFA Champions League second leg playoffs tie against PSV Eindhoven at the Philips Stadion in the Netherlands tomorrow. 

The first leg ended in a 2-2 draw at the Ibrox Stadium with Dessers playing a vital role in the Light Blues' second goal of the game having assisted Rabbi Matondo in the 76th minute of the encounter.


The Nigeria International has registered 1 goal and two assists for Rangers in the Champions League qualifiers with his only goal being the strike in the first leg of the fixture against Servette at the Ibrox Stadium


The 28-year-old has expressed what to expect ahead of their fixture against PSV and believes in the ability of his teammates to handle the circumstance 

In quotes relayed by Rangers Review, the Belgium-born forward said: "The atmosphere will be on fire there as well, like it was at Ibrox. I think Ibrox tops it! 

"I think the players at Rangers are used to the crowd here at Ibrox, they have experience in the Champions League. 

"I know they can handle this crowd as well. We will be ready and we will put in a good performance and hopefully that will be enough for us."


Rangers are hoping to make it back-to-back qualification for the UEFA Champions League for the first time in 12 years with their last being between 2009/10 and 2010/2011 seasons.


The draw for the group stage of the competition takes place on Thursday at the Grimaldi Forum in France.
