Rangers 1-1 Frankfurt (4-5 pens) LIVE RESULT: Aaron Ramsey penalty SAVED as Gers lose Europa League final


RANGERS have suffered penalty shootout heartbreak as the Germans came up trumps from the spot once again.

In a game of few chances, makeshift striker Joe Aribo pounced on a defensive error to give the Gers the lead in Seville.

But Rafael Santos Borre poked home from close range to level for the Germans and force extra time.

Ryan Kent had the chance to win the Europa League trophy with seconds left but a world class save from point blank range from Kevin Trapp denied him.

And that meant a penalty shootout.

After some brilliant spot kicks, Aaron Ramsey saw his penalty saved by Trapp as the Germans scored five out of five to win the trophy.

  • All is not lost

    Rangers may have lost the Europa League final but they still have a chance of securing Champions League football.

    The Gers will now have to go through the non-champions qualifying path.

    And as a result of all Russian teams being expelled, they will enter the tournament at the third qualifying round rather than the second qualifying round.

    That means they are guaranteed Europa League football even if they lose in qualifying.

  • The match-winner

    Borre stole in to level the scores in the second half.

    He then scored the final penalty to win it for his side.

  • Caught in a Trapp

    Frankfurt goalkeeper Kevin Trapp was the hero tonight for the German side with a point black save from Ryan Kent and a penalty save from Aaron Ramsey.

    And nobody will be more delighted than his biggest fan, fiancee Izabel Goulart.

    The former Victoria’s Secret lingerie model is a regular at his games with Frankfurt and was seen sharing a kiss with him after their wins over Barcelona and West Ham.

    In 2018, she even bragged that the couple make love five times a week, which can leave him tired for matches.

  • A devastated Lundstram has his say:

    We’re so disappointed to lose like that. Penalties are a lottery, it could have been any one of us who missed. We feel like we’ve let the fans down who have come here to support us. We’re so, so heartbroken.

    John Lundstram, Rangers midfielder
