Maksim Maksimov (centre) celebrates against St Johnstone

St Johnstone joined Rangers in exiting the first qualifying round of the Europa League, beaten by 10-man Trakai in Lithuania.

Saints were the better side at the LFF Stadium in Vilnius, but Maksim Maksimov’s late strike added to his side’s 2-1 first-leg win in Perth.

Joe Shaughnessy had two first-half headers well saved by goalkeeper Ignas Plukas and missed badly in the second.
