LONDON: Wolves marked their return to European football after a 39-year absence with a 2-0 home win over Crusaders of Northern Ireland in the Europa League second qualifying round on Thursday.

Diogo Jota and Ruben Vinagre were on target at Molineux in the first leg clash.

However, it was a nervous evening for the Premier League side with Vinagre's goal only coming in injury time after a mistake by goalkeeper Sean O'Neill.

Rangers were also 2-0 winners over bogey team Progres Niederkorn at Ibrox.

The part-timers from Luxembourg dished out one of the biggest upsets in Rangers' history when they dumped Pedro Caixinha's side out of the same competition two years ago.
