A heartbreaking loss in the UEL final saw Rangers walk away runners up in Seville.

Ibrox Noise returns to giving some ratings on an intense night for the Famous.


Had no chance with any penalties, but made one or two ok stops in normal time. Failed to come for any crosses as usual, and was slow off his line. Wasn’t the performance he was looking for overall. 6


Seemed to let the occasion get to him, but did more get up to speed as the game grew. His crossing and corners were mostly poor and defensively he was frequently out of position. 6


Hugely responsible for the goal lost – just weakly let the cross past him rather than reading it. Left it for others to deal with. A host of misdirected long balls and overall it wasn’t the display he looked for. Nearly cost a goal with a bad slip. 5


Did not deserve to lose this match. Nothing got past him, and the one thing that did, still didn’t. He was flawless and by far and away the MOTM. 10


Mirrored Tav – didn’t influence the game in the way he should have, with mediocre crossing. Negative passing always saw him turn back the way. Another one who let the evening get to him. 5


His worst display since becoming Lunny 2.0. He had no impact anywhere on the pitch, probably caused by uncertainty over a reckless early tackle. 5


Cut a lot of balls out and read a lot of the play – didn’t really understand why he was removed, he was doing a lot of good work. 6


Was excellent for large spells of the first half but faded desperately into nothing in the second. 6


Wasn’t being fed at all. Got into good positions but wasn’t being seen. Did look dangerous when he had the ball but it just didn’t fall for him. Missed the chance to win the Europa League right on the death. 6


Fair play to Scott, he gave it what he had and he was one of the brighter performers. He did better than expected and successfully opened up the channels. 7


Scored the goal of his life but it amounted to nothing. Wasn’t really able to exert himself and often looked tired. Did create one good scoring chance and missed it. Struggled after the break. 6



Was quiet and composed and did his part for sure. Did little wrong when he came on. 6


Horrendous passing and first touch but started causing problems with his pace. Completely lacks a football brain though. 5


Tidy enough, no idea why he was brought on. 5


Took his pen well and nearly assisted the winning goal. Looked energetic and probably should have been on much earlier. 7


His Rangers loan was summed up here. We’re not blaming him for the penalty, they’re a lottery, but he has been a diabolical fail. 1


We must admit, Gio could have done some things differently. His team was way too passive at the start, but it grew into the game, even if it lacked fluidity. He should have used Roofe earlier, and Sakala was a puzzling introduction as was Sands. The players worked like dogs, one and all, for the fans, manager and each other but there was a lack of quality at times. And it was probably our worst Euro performance in terms of conviction. No lack of heart. But Gio didn’t shine in this one. Occasion got to him too we think. 5


We rarely rate the fans but sorry, they were ****. About a quarter of the stadium was Eintracht and they made all the noise. The fans in the ground did not support our team the way they should have and they were disappointing and passive. Respect to them for spending the money to get there but they were a let down on the night. 3

  1. I totally agree with you in most of your comments Ryan Kent should have taken one of the penalties and roofe should have been brought on earlier as he nearly missed the penalty (very lucky)as for the fans they were too quiet which was unusual

  2. Fair and accurate assessment IN. We’ve went to a European final and only Bassey, Jack and Kamara have turned up to anything like what we expected. This was a game there for the taking. Eintracht were no great shakes with no outstanding dangerous players. They were comfortably the worst team we played in the knock out stages. This is one we will live to regret. A really poor performance from GVB.

  3. You must be joking re comments on Kamara. Goes through the motions and flatters to deceive, disappointing performance
