Rangers have been enjoying a fairytale story in their UEFA Europa League adventure, reaching the final of the European tournament for the first time.
The Ibrox side have beaten the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Red Star Belgrade, Braga and RB Leipzig to make it to the final of the competition. In their semi final, they went into the second leg 1-0 down after conceding in Germany.
But the Scottish fans were out in full force when Rangers hosted Leipzig a week later and it felt as if Ibrox was bouncing. The Gers captain James Tavernier kicked off the show with a goal in the 18th minute.
Glen Kamara then brought Rangers ahead with a second goal just over five minutes later.
The second-half saw a revived Leipzig and their danger-man Christopher Nkunku netted in the 70th minute, bringing the scores back to an even 2-2. However, Rangers were far from finished and an 80th minute goal from John Lundstram not only saw Rangers win the match but sent them to the final of the Europa League and in with a chance of making it to next year’s Champions League tournament.
Frankfurt secured a 1-0 win over West Ham United which sealed their place in the final of the UEFA Europa League tournament. The German side were 2-1 ahead after beating David Moyes’ squad in London the week before and continued to secure their Europa League future thanks to a first half goal from Rafael Santos Borre Maury.
