Scotland's reputation in Europe was dealt a further blow thanks to this afternoon's UEFA Cup ties. With Celtic out of the CL at the qualifying stages and the national side recently only drawing against the minnows of the Faroe Islands, it was left to Aberdeen and Rangers to salvage some much needed pride – and they failed.

Rangers face an uphill task to remain in the competition after slumping to a 2-0 defeat in Prague against Zizkov. Barry Ferguson summed up the night for the Glasgow side when he saw his penalty saved just before half time. By this time, Ales Piki had already headed the Czech side into the lead and just past the hour, Ludek Straceny doubled the tally. Rangers had a stoppage time goal chalked off and needed to score at least twice in a fortnight at Ibrox.

Their SPL neighbours Aberdeen fared little better as they were held to a goalless draw at home to German side Hertha Berlin. Laurent D'Jaffo came closest for the hosts, only to see his header well saved, whilst Marcelinho scorched an effort just wide of the post for the visitors.

Elsewhere, Bordeaux comfortably saw off Matador Puchov with a 6-0 demolition. The goals were spread throughout the team with Sommeil, Dugarry, Feindouno and Darchville all getting in on the act. A penalty from Pauleta and an own goal by Vavrik completed the rout.

Just how low can we (Scotland) fall?
We suck

A busy night of UEFA Cup action is in its final stages with just four matches yet to finish. Here is the best of the first round action:

Celtic have recorded the biggest win of the night, a 8-1 win at home to Lithuanian minnows Suduva. A goal glut was always on the cards and lethal Swedish striker Henrik Larsson got the ball rolling with a hat-trick inside the opening half hour.

Anderlecht were surprisingly beaten 1-0 at home by Stabaek. The Norwegian's victoy is quite an achievement as the Belgium giants are usually formidable at home.

Greek giants Panathinaikos edged a 1-0 victory away to Litex Lovech of Bulgaria thanks to a second half own goal. Another Bulgarian outfit, Levski Sofia , have humbled Michael Laudrup's Brondby 4-1 in their first leg tie, while Stuttgart won by the same scoreline at home to Latvia's Ventspils.


It has been a bad night for Dutch duo Heerenveen and FC Utrecht after 3-0 and 4-1 defeats away to National Bucharest and Legia Warsaw respectively.

Turkish outfits Besiktas and Fenerbahce were both held to draws. Werner Lorant's out of form side threw away a 3-1 lead away to AIK Stockholm, while Besiktas were also held at home to FK Sarajevo despite storming into a 2-0 lead.

Paris St. Germain had little trouble in their home tie with Ujpest, beating the Hungarians 3-0.

Thanks for the results dpf
No problem ;)


I think Parma, Chievo, and Lazio have a big chance of making it to the next stage .. Parma played better against the home side (CSKA) and got a draw .. while Lazio won 4-0 .. Chievo needs to win at home in the return leg to make it through ..
