TalkSport pundit reacts after Rangers reach Europa League final

Rangers have reached the finals of the Europa League after beating RB Leipzig on an emotionally charged night at Ibrox on Thursday (05 May).

It’s a remarkable achievement considering where they were four or five years back. Jason Cundy on talkSport has repeated the word “astonishing”, which clearly shows that he has been left stunned.

The Gers will face another German side Eintracht Frankfurt in the final after they defeated West Ham in the other semi-final.

“Remarkable stuff. Congratulations to Rangers. That is astonishing. Astonishing,” said Cundy on TalkSport.

“If you think where they were four or five years ago…just astonishing.

“They can beat Frankfurt. It’s a brilliant result. That is top drawer.”

Stunned

Rangers deserve to be in the final of the Europa League, and they have got a brilliant opportunity to lift their first European trophy after 50 years.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side have defeated the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Red Star Belgrade, Braga, and now Leipzig on their way to the final. It’s simply remarkable.

In the quarterfinal, they came from 1-0 down in the first leg to turn the tie over the head at Ibrox. On Thursday, they achieved a similar feat again.

The Gers have shown they can beat any side on their day at their home turf. The final is anybody’s game. Surely, they have the talent and quality to beat Frankfurt.

Rangers started the game on a high tempo and took a quick 2-0 lead insider 25 minutes through James Tavernier and Glen Kamara.

The visitors responded as they have done throughout when Christopher Nkunku scored in the 70th minute, his 32nd goal of the season.

Rangers found a way to seal the winner when John Lundstram shook Ibrox with 10 minutes left on the clock.

The Gers players looked in disbelief after what they have done. On an emotional night at Ibrox, they have made everyone proud.
