Borussia Dortmund played full-time after the Scottish champions knocked them out in the Europa League after a 2-2 draw at Ibrox. Jude Bellingham appeared to have slapped Borussia Dortmund teammate Nico Schulz with a foul tirade as Borussia Dortmund were knocked out of the Europa League at the Rangers game on Thursday night. Rangers have ended a “great moment” in their history after knocking Borussia Dortmund out of the Europa League in an epic 10-goal draw. The moment could have been a turning point in the interest, but Rangers remained steadfast and held back pressure from German giants Borussia Dortmund to see a stunning win that would go down in Ibrox folklore.
Nico Schulz made a truly remarkable comeback, denying the Rangers a third goal in the second half. Gregor Kobel made a couple of great saves, depriving the Rangers of the chance to seal the win. Tavernier restored the Rangers’ two-goal lead on aggregate to secure a place in the Round of 16. Rangers skipper James Tavernier turned anxiety into joy with a 57th-minute equaliser, and Rangers stepped up in the second half when Ryan Kent’s goal was interrupted by VAR. Still, Scottish fans celebrated an incredible win at the end of a wild night—a European result. James Tavernier gave the Rangers a 22-minute lead in the second leg at Ibrox before goals from Jude Bellingham and Donyell Malen put the visitors on the brink of an extraordinary comeback.
On the pitch, as promised by manager Marco Rose, the visitors attacked. As Borussia lashed out at all the Rangers, Gers’ goal outlived their first misgivings thanks to an effort by England’s Jude Bellingham, who hit the post before the ball was finally cancelled. The rangers were pushed back into the Rangers area as Borussia Dortmund took the lead on a wild night, and winger Donyell Malen fired a shot from England’s Jude Bellingham, and the ball went past Allan McGregor from 10 yards.
Rangers Ibrox weathered the pressure in the final with a frenetic home crowd behind them to secure a spot in the Europa League round of 16 for the third consecutive season. A magical night unfolded for Rangers at Ibrox as they challenged the chances of European football. The Scottish champions stunned Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga with a 4-2 win in the first leg of the play-offs in Germany last week, and the second leg in Glasgow was equally pulsating. But the draw means Rangers have reached the round of 16 with a 6-4 aggregate scoreline. At least two more Europa League games to go will be seen as unfavourable by some as the Ibrox team look to regain a three-point lead over leaders Celtic. Celtic are at present the leaders of the league with 73 points, and the Rangers trail them with 70 points.
