Rangers now need to go to Sweden and win on Wednesday night after failing to beat Malmo at Ibrox yesterday.
The Gers went down 1-0 as Daniel Larsson got the only goal of the game. Rangers should have got a few goals in the second half but Steven Naismith was unable to convert two different taps ins.
David Weir had to be subsituted and it looks like he might miss the second leg but new signing Dorin Goian might be able to play if his work permit comes through in time.
Both teams went on to create chances but were unable to score and it leaves Rangers with a lot of work to do if they want to progress to the next round.
