German press stunned as Rangers reach final of the Europa League

Rangers move into the finals of the Europa League after winning 3-1 (and 3-2 on aggregate) against RB Leipzig in the second leg at Ibrox on Thursday (05 May).

Despite losing the first leg 1-0 in Germany, the Gers once again stepped up their gear at Ibrox, and they have delivered when it mattered most.

German press are absolutely stunned with this result. Bild has called it a “collapse” while Sportsbuzzer.de claim the Gers have “shocked” everyone.

Heroic win

The dream run continues, and the Gers need to beat one more Germans to lift the Europa League trophy.

On an emotionally charged and memorable night at Ibrox, the players sent a fitting tribute to Jimmy Bell with a performance that will be etched in the memory forever.

The Gers needed a strong start and they turned it around within 25 minutes through goals from James Tavernier and Glen Kamara.

Christopher Nkunku’s 32nd goal of the season pulled the visitors back into the contest before John Lundstram left the Ibrox crowd in delirium with 10 minutes left after netting home.

Amid a cauldron of noise, Rangers players held their nerves as Leipzig struggled to find a way to level the tie.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side will now face Eintracht Frankfurt in Seville on 18 May after the German defeated West Ham in the other semi-final.

The Gers are now on the verge of lifting their first European trophy for 50 years. The dream is on.
