Rangers boss Walter Smith paid tribute to match-winner Steven Naismith after his crucial strike against Bursaspor at Ibrox gave the SPL champions a 1-0 win. It was their first win in 13 European ties and Naismith was instrumental in the victory, as he has been so often this season.
Smith told the club's official website: "Steven has been terrific since we started. He has been playing exceptionally well for us this season and we are delighted for him.
"He took a little bit of time to settle when he came to us then got a bit injury which kept him out.
"When he came back, Steven struggled a little bit as well but this season he has been excellent for us and he is on a great run of form."
