Villarreal need another draw in their last match against Spartak Moscow to secure their place in the knock-out stage after they were held 0-0 at Glasgow Rangers (the fourth time they have shared the points in five games). The Scottish side had Candeias sent off for a second bookable offence on the stroke of half time, but local keeper MacGregor made a string of saves, and Middleton could have won it for the locals had his strike not been ruled out for a marginal offside later on .
