Rangers dump out Dortmund in epic tie

Rangers captain James Tavernier netted a brace in a memorable night at Ibrox

Rangers completed one of their greatest European triumphs after dumping German giants Borussia Dortmund out of the Europa League in an epic 10-goal tie.

As he did in last week’s 4-2 first-leg win, James Tavernier opened the scoring from the spot to set Ibrox rocking.

But Jude Bellingham slotted his second goal of the tie before Donyell Malen gave Dortmund the lead on the night.

However, Tavernier’s back-post finish restored Rangers’ two-goal aggregate advantage, sealing a last-16 place.

The Scottish side were controversially denied a more comfortable end to the tie when Ryan Kent’s goal was harshly disallowed after a VAR review.

But the Ibrox club withstood late pressure with a raucous home crowd behind them to book their place in the Europa League’s last 16 for the third successive season, and the incredible performance and swashbuckling endeavor shown to down Dortmund will give Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s men plenty of belief going into Friday’s draw.

More to follow.
