Liverpool central defender Virgil van Dijk has expressed his delight at his side’s second-half performance against Rangers in Glasgow in the UEFA Champions League this week.

Premier League side Liverpool hammered Scottish Premiership club Rangers 7-1 away from home at Ibrox in UEFA Champions League Group A on Wednesday evening.

Egypt international forward Mohamed Salah came on as a substitute midway through the second half to score a six-minute hat-trick.

Roberto Firmino scored two goals in the match, while Darwin Nunez and Harvey Elliott bagged a goal each.

It was 1-1 at half time, and former Celtic centre-back Van Dijk was pleased with how Liverpool played in the second half.

Van Dijk told Liverpool’s official website: “Yeah, it was great. I think obviously what we expected definitely happened with the fans behind them, especially in the beginning. 

“They tried to give everything and you have to be very composed and play the ball quick from side to side, between the lines, get on the ball, put your body in between the ball and the player and play with composure. 

“I think at times we did it, in the first half we could have done it better, but second half we did it much more.”

Liverpool will return to action on Sunday when they take on Manchester City at Anfield in the Premier League.

The Reds can be backed at 20/1 on Betfair to win 3-1 against defending champions City.
