Rijkaard refused to acknowledge Thierry Henry's opener appeared to involve his arm and instead declared: "It was important to score early. But even then, they still played the same way - even at 2-0. It will have been boring for the fans.

"The good thing is that we showed the right attitude throughout the game.

"It is not a question of being annoyed with Rangers or not, but if you want a good football match, you need both teams to attack. The intention should always be to entertain the fans, so they can leave the ground happy."
