Rangers 'superseded' all expectations with Europa League win over RB Leipzig - Trevor Sinclair
Trevor Sinclair says Rangers ‘superseded’ all expectations with their 3-1 win over RB Leipzig on Thursday as they reached the Europa League final.
The light blues overturned a 1-0 deficit from the first leg thanks to goals from James Tavernier, Glen Kamara and John Lundstram to make their first European final since 2008.
Speaking on the talkSPORT breakfast show [May 6, 8:08am], Sinclair praised the performance of the players as ‘excellent’ and says the players will be ‘super proud’ of the result.
“Brilliant result for Rangers last night,” he said.
“Undeniable what they’ve achieved. RB Leipzig are a real powerhouse in Europe, a top, top side who have been there many times before. Rangers superseded every expectation I had.
“You know going into that game one down, obviously the players played really well, they’ve got strikers missing out of the side. They’ve got a new manager, the fans played their part, the players were excellent.
“To have players missing and still achieve that result, they’ll be super proud of what they’ve achieved and they’ll be in Sevilla.”
What a night at Ibrox and what a win for Rangers on an emotionally charged night for the club.
It was a fast start once again with the fans behind them and they got a good start, before holding steady under the pressure of Leipzig’s goal that levelled things on aggregate.
Lundstram turned in a magnificent performance once again and Rangers now have the chance for history on May 18th when they will take on Eintracht Frankfurt in the final.
Regardless of the result it’s been a tremendous campaign for Rangers and Giovanni van Bronckhorst and this set of players have etched their name in history going forward.
But this isn’t the end and they have a huge chance to make it even better by winning the tournament, where they’ll go in as underdogs once again and will be relying on their fans to help push them over the line one more time.
