Richard Foster shocked by lack of Rangers attack live on BBC v RB Leipzig

Richard Foster was far from impressed at the “non-existent” Rangers attack against RB Leipzig this evening.

The Bears travelled to Germany for the opening leg of the Europa League semi-finals and were comfortable for most of it.

Ryan Kent had the best chance of the game in the second half, but that meant nothing when Angelino smashed home the winner.

Speaking live on BBC coverage, as shared on their blog, Foster singled out the area in the final third that he was concerned with.

“As an attacking threat Rangers have been non-existent,” he said.

“But defensively they’ve been comfortable. Allan McGregor hasn’t had anything to do. Leipzig need someone to go and beat a man to break up Rangers’ shape.”


It wasn’t good enough by certain individuals this evening, but the game plan on the whole certainly worked.

After all of that work, it took a screamer from distance to get the only goal, and that is hugely unfortunate from our point of view.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst will not be too disappointed with his men in the end, who gave their all, and they are still in the tie.

It will be much different at Ibrox next week, with the huge crowd set to make this a cauldron for Leipzig.

The main key was making sure it was all to play for, and it certainly is with one early goal changing it all around next week.

With Kemar Roofe hopefully back in action, there will be an actual centre-forward to utilise and we will look instantly better with that.

Bring it on.
