The Scottish Premiership side progressed to the Europa League group stage after a last minute winner from striker Alfredo Morelos sealed a huge 1-0 win for Steven Gerrard's men.
After the final whistle, the 39-year-old, former Liverpool midfielder said he had to "provoke" his players at half-time to find the win.
"I had to go for them at half-time. In the first half we never went into top gear," Gerrard told RangersTV.
"We had the handbrake and seatbelts on. They needed to be provoked and I got the reaction I wanted because second half we took the shackles off and really went for Legia."

He continued, saying: "Then it was about people stepping up for moments of quality and Jordan Jones provided it with an exquisite cross and Alfredo does what he does, scoring goals.
"The players deserve all the plaudits. I've just had to get myself off the ceiling."
