Liverpool, English Premier League (EPL) side, scored once in each half to overcome Rangers 2-0 in their UEFA Champions League (UCL) group A encounter at Anfield on Tuesday night.
Goals from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Mohamed Salah helped the Reds put behind their domestic troubles to earn consecutive UCL group match victories.
Alexander-Arnold set the tone for an easy evening with a well-struck free kick in seven minutes before Salah, who has been a shadow of his brilliant past, scored from the spot early in the second period following a penalty won by Luiz Diaz.
Liverpool, last season’s UCL finalists, remain second in the group behind Victor Osimhen’s Napoli who continued their perfect group record this season with a 6-1 victory at Ajax Amsterdam.
Calvin Bassey, Super Eagles of Nigeria defender, played the entire game for Ajax.
Elsewhere, Inter Milan provided a gutsy display to overcome resurgent Barcelona 1-0 at the Guiseppe Meazza stadium in Italy.
