Rangers 2-2 Borussia Dortmund Highlights: Dortmund are OUT


Rangers 2-2 Borussia Dortmund Highlights: Borussia Dortmund KNOCKED OUT – An incredible victory for Rangers, who fully deserved to go through after their performances across the two legs. It was a sluggish first half from the hosts, who found themselves somewhat fortunate to only be 2-1 down following some energetic, high-tempo football from Dortmund. The second half was a different story, however, as Rangers dominated from start to finish, and didn’t really give their opponents much of a chance to draw level in the tie.

Tavernier scored his second of the night with a thumping volley, and they could have had more after Kent’s goal was harshly ruled out for a foul on Can moments after. They then comfortably saw out the rest of the game, much to the delight of a packed Ibrox.

There will be some reckoning for Dortmund though, who first crashed out of the Champions League, and now the Europa League at the very first opportunity. They were heavy favourites at the start of the tie, but some shambolic defending left them conceding six over two legs, and facing a trophyless season.

Rangers completed a stunning victory over Borussia Dortmund at Ibrox, progressing through 6-4 on aggregate. James Tavernier scored a brace on the night, the first coming from the penalty spot after Julian Brandt had fouled Borna Barišić in the box.

Dortmund pulled themselves back into it through Jude Bellingham after he took advantage of some poor defending from the hosts before slotting past Allan McGregor at the near post. Donyell Malen then poked home from nine yards out three minutes before the break to seemingly set up a potential tricky second half as the comeback looked on.

But the Scottish champions moved closer to the dream result with Tavernier bagged his second with a right-footed effort at the back post in the 57th minute after being found by Calvin Bassey.

Marco Rose’s side failed to test McGregor in the second half and in the end stumbled out of a second European competition in two months as Rangers pulled off a remarkable win.
