Gers lose again as Sevilla march on

The Ibrox side had hoped to claim at least one victory in the tournament this season but a Frederic Kanoute penalty early on after Steven Whittaker had tripped Fernando Navarro proved to be the difference between the two teams.

In fact, Rangers would have felt fortunate to leave Spain with such a narrow defeat on a night when the hosts dominated and they failed to trouble Andres Palop in the Sevilla goal.

There was a touch of glamour surrounding the game with Tom Cruise and his wife Katie Holmes watching the action at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium after the Hollywood actor took a break from filming his new movie Knight and Day in the Spanish city.
