The club have been penalised after supporters used fireworks in their Champions League qualifying clash at PSV Eindhoven.

Rangers have been fined £14,000 for the incident which took place during their 1-0 win in Holland on August 24. PSV meanwhile were fined £36,800 for a range of offences, including lighting of fireworks, throwing of objects and improper conduct of the team. Rangers edged out PSV 3-2 on aggregate with that win in Eindhoven to reach the Champions League group stage for the first time in 12 years. However, the month of September couldn't have got off to a worse start for the Scottish club. The first major blow for Giovanni van Bronckhorst's side was a 4-0 defeat in the Old Firm derby against Celtic at Parkhead. Rangers followed up that result with another 4-0 defeat, this time against Ajax Amsterdam in their Champions League opener. The Glasgow outfit will not be in action this weekend after Scottish Premiership games were postponed following the death of Queen Elizabeth II. However, Rangers will face a daunting return to action on Tuesday as they host a Napoli side who kicked off their European campaign with a 4-1 thrashing of Liverpool.
