Rangers' 1-1 draw in with CSKA Moscow saw them bow out of the Champions League.
Rangers controversially had a goal chalked off, as their 1-1 draw with CSKA Moscow saw them bow out of the UEFA Champions League.
Nacho Novo thought he had given Rangers a first half lead three minutes before the break, but to his disbelief found that play had been dragged back because of a foul on him.
It compounded an awful 18th minute miss by Peter Lovenkrands, who fired over the bar after Dado Prso had headed the ball into his path.
The crowd signalled their anger at referee Wolfgang Stark at the half time break - but things went from bad to worse, when the Russian side put themselves 3-1 up on aggregate in the second half.
Silva Vagner Love was the man who broke Scottish hearts, benefiting from a fine Ivica Olic run to bundle home from close range.
Steve Thompson gave Gers fans brief hope in the final stages when he lashed home from the edge of the box.
Marvin Andrews did have a chance to take the tie into extra time, but could not find the back of the net - meaning Rangers have the consolation of the Uefa Cup to look forward to.
