Whittaker relieved Rangers finally win at Ibrox in Europe

Steven Whittaker believes Rangers have got rid of the elephant in the room thanks to their Champions League win over Bursaspor at Ibrox. The Scottish champions had already earned plaudits for kicking off the campaign with a draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford in their Group C opener.

The 1-0 win over the Turkish champions was Rangers' first European victory at Ibrox in seven attempts and Whittaker is now relishing the visit of Valencia in a few weeks.

"The home form is obviously something we wanted to improve on from last year," he said.

"We have managed to do that in our first home game. We've got another home game against Valencia next and we are looking forward to that one as well."

Rangers sit joint top of the group with Manchester United but Walter Smith's men will proceed with caution.

"We can't get too carried away," Whittaker added.

"We are two games in and we have had two good results. We'll enjoy that but there is still a lot of football to be played.

"We have four points from six and that's a good start but we have two tough ties against Valencia next."
