FT

FULL-TIME: RANGERS WIN 6-4 ON AGGREGATE!

One of the best night's in the club's history is complete! Rangers have done it! They have knocked out the mighty Dortmund and progress to the last-16 of the Europa League!

90'+2

SAVE!

Kent eats up a lot of ground as he looks to rubber-stamp the victory with a run on the counter, he tries an early shot but it's straightforward for Kobel. It matters little as Rangers are moments from what would be a famous victory.

90'

FOUR ADDITIONAL MINUTES ARE CONFIRMED

It's all Dortmund but Rangers are standing firm defensively.

88' 

RANGERS ARE ALMOST THERE

There are going to be four minutes of added time, apparently.

FIVE MINUTES REMAINING

Rangers are almost there. Ibrox has turned up the volume. The Scottish giants are on the verge of a great result.

81' 

OVER!

Reus floats in a cross, Moukoko meets it but can't keep his header down.

Time is running out for Dortmund and their desperation is evident. They need two goals in nine minutes.

  • Steffen Tigges

76' 

RANGERS COUNTER

With Dortmund throwing so many bodies forward in search of a goal, they're leaving themselves sort at the back. Ken races through the centre on the counter but the attack fizzles out.

73' 

DORTMUND CHANCE

Moukoko is immediately involved, dragging a shot wide of the post. If Rangers go out now - after having a seemingly good goal ruled out for offside - it would be hugely controversial.

But the visitors still have a lot to do.

RANGERS GOAL DISALLOWED!

Wow, what a big decision this is! Ally McCoist on BT Sport commentary calls it scandalous! Morelos robs Can, races through on goal and rolls it to Kent for a tap-in.

It goes to VAR and after a lengthy check the goal is disallowed! Morelos is adjudged to have fouled Can but that is... harsh.

- 

WATCH: TAVERNIER AT THE DOUBLE

Wow, what scenes!

62'

CHANCE FOR DORTMUND!

Bellingham's perfectly weighted pass releases Reus, he rounds McGregor but slips at the crucial moment and he can only find the side-netting from a tight angle.

59' 

A HUGE MOMENT AT IBROX

And suddenly the momentum is back with the hosts! Van Bronckhorst's decision to move to a back five has paid dividends, it seems.

  • James Tavernier

Rangers' dream is alive!

SAVE!

Kent does brilliantly, cutting in from the left. Morelos takes control, his first touch allows him the space to get his shot away but Kobel is down quickly to make the save.

RANGERS CHANCE!

Morelos gives Hummers a nudge and gets free down the right. He carves in and tries to beat Kobel at his near post, but the Dortmund goalkeeper is equal to it!

48' 

A NERVY MOMENT IN RANGERS' DEFENCE

Balogun receives a pass from his goalkeeper that he clearly doesn't want. He's put under immediate pressure by the press and his attempted clearance is charged down, the ball bouncing behind for a goal-kick.

47' 

DORTMUND ON THE ATTACK IMMEDIATELY

Dahoud has a chance to play Malen through on goal but he overhits the pass and Rangers have a goal-kick.

HALF-TIME: RANGERS 1-2 DORTMUND - 5-4 ON AGGREGATE

After Rangers took an early lead through Tavernier's penalty, the momentum shifted as Bellingham drew Dortmund level before Malen gave the visitors the lead.

Rangers' aggregate lead is now extremely slender. It's all set up for a fascinating second half!

45'+2

MCGREGOR COMES TO RANGERS' RESCUE!

Malen stands up a teasing cross into the home side's box, Meunier can only get a slight touch on the ball and McGregor is alert to make the save!

45'

TWO MINUTES WILL BE ADDED ON

Rangers will be glad to hear the half-time whistle.

44'

ANOTHER CHANCE FOR MALEN!

Rangers are living really dangerously! Malen tricks his way into the penalty area, he gives the goalkeeper the eyes as he creates space for a shot but drags his effort wide of McGregor's near post.

  • Donyell Malen

YELLOW CARD

Lundstrum 'takes one for the team' with a cynical foul as Dortmund counter and it's no surprise when the referee produces a yellow card.

35'

RANGERS CHANCES!

Arfield is through one on one with the goalkeeper! Kent is unmarked and waiting for the tap in but his team mate opts to go for goal but his low shot is repelled by Kobel!

Morelos pounces on the rebound but it's cleared off the line!

34' 

PLAY RESUMES

Both players return to the action and are fine to continue.

HEAD INJURY

There's a stoppage in play as Meunier collides with Barisic, with the latter receiving a blow to the head.

GOAL! RANGERS 1-1 DORTMUND (JUDE BELLINGHAM) - 5-3 ON AGGREGATE

Poor defensive work from Rangers and Bellingham takes full advantage as Dortmund draw level on the night!

Goldson fails to clear inside the box, it falls kindly to the England international and he makes no mistake, slotting it past McGregor at his near post.

28' 

WHAT A MOMENT FOR RANGERS

And what an excellent spot-kick from Tavenier, who scored his 10th European goal for the club in some style.

25'

BIG SAVE FROM MCGREGOR!

Bellingham tees up Brandt who gets plenty of power in his shot but it's straight down the middle and McGregor pushes it clear.

23' 

IBROX IS ABSOLUTELY BOUNCING

It was loud before, but now... wow. What an atmosphere! The first goal tonight was always going to be crucial and Rangers have grabbed it. This could completely kill Dortmund's spirit.

21'

PENALTY TO RANGERS!

Kent is tripped at the top of the box and it's a simple decision for the referee as he points to the spot!

18' 

WIDE!

A snapshot from Bellingham fails to trouble McGregor in the Rangers goal. Van Bronckhorst insisted his side wouldn't sit back to protect their lead but in this instance their defence didn't get out quickly enough after successfully defending a corner.

17' 

SHOT DEFLECTED BEHIND

Dortmund are beginning to exert pressure as Hazard picks up a pocket of space and wins a corner with a deflected shot. Lundstrum wins the header at the near post to clear the resulting set-piece.

16' 

NO PENALTY!

Lundstrum sticks out an arm across the chest of Meunier, who throws himself to ground inside the Rangers penalty area. Dortmund's appeals for a penalty are half-hearted and the referee isn't interested.

15' 

GOOD FOOTBALL FROM THE HOSTS

Rangers build out from the back with patient possession, spreading it out wide to Tavernier. However, he takes a heavy touch and Schulz nips in to stop him in his tracks.

13'

OFFSIDE

Morelos looks level with the defence as he latches onto a chipped ball over the top but the offside flag goes up

10' 

FOUL

Meunier is fortunate not to receive a yellow card for a foul on Kent. The Rangers supporters certainly make their feelings known to the referee as he keeps his cards in his pocket.

7' 

A MISTAKE BY RANGERS AS ...

Tavernier is robbed by Reus but his attempted pass is intercepted by Jack in a scrappy passage of play.

5'

BELLINGHAM DENIED BY THE POST!

The corner delivery isn't dealt with and Bellingham comes out of nowhere and gets something on the ball. Ibrox stands still for a moment as the ball hits the post!

4' 

DORTMUND WIN A CORNER

Schulz controls Dahoud's diagonal ball and forces a corner as his cross is blocked by Tavernier.

3' 

RANGERS START ON THE FRONT FOOT

The hosts win an early free-kick. Tavernier whips in a great ball, it's slightly behind Morelos and he can't keep his header down.

1'

WE'RE LIVE!

Rangers get the ball moving!

There's a terrific atmosphere, as you would expect and Ibrox is filled to capacity with around 3,000 travelling supporters in attendance.

19:55 

FIVE MINUTES UNTIL KICK-OFF!

It's Rangers versus Dortmund in the Europa League playoff. After the first leg ended 4-2 to the Scottish giants, tonight's visitors to Ibrox have it all to do.

Strap yourself in, this is going to be a great game!

19:50

PRE-MATCH STAT

Dortmund have lost four of their seven away matches against Scottish sides in European competition (W2 D1), although this is their first visit since November 1999 in the UEFA Cup, a 2-0 defeat to Rangers. Their two wins have come against Celtic (1992, UEFA Cup) and Motherwell (1994, UEFA Cup).

19:45 

CELTIC ARE OUT OF THE EUROPA CONFERENCE LEAGUE

Fans of Rangers will take great delight!

19:35

GOOD OMENS FOR GERS

In the UEFA Europa League (since 2009-10), only one side has ever won the first leg of a knockout tie by 2+ goals away from home and then not gone on to qualify: Real Betis vs Sevilla in 2013-14 (won 2-0 first leg, lost 2-0 second leg, lost on pens).

19:30 

DORTMUND NEED TO FIND BALANCE - MARCO ROSE

“The situation is clear and we need to score two goals," said the Dortmund boss.

“We know that but we are trying not to think too much about it.

“We know we have to keep the balance between attacking and defending but we need to score two goals so of course we need to attack."

Bleibt wohl weiter im Amt: Marco Rose
19:25 

WE WILL TRY TO WIN THE GAME - VAN BRONCKHORST

Are Rangers tempted to sit back and defend their lead? Their manager insists not...

"Sitting deep? You get in positions in moments in games where you have to," he said.

“But what we did last week is also at the right time we pressed them a little bit higher and tried to win the ball and be dangerous. But to begin the game and sit deep? I don’t think that’s in our system. We have to avoid it.

“I can believe we can pass this round, which is the most important thing. We had a great performance last week and we are all happy with the game we played. We also know it’s only halfway.

“Tomorrow we are going to face a very good team, a very strong team in Europe and we have to be ready to overcome them.

“We are in a good position to play the second game, but I think our focus tomorrow will be to play as strong as possible and try to win the game. That is our intention for tomorrow.”

AND THE VISITORS...

Three changes from the side that Gladbach 6-0 on Sunday and the biggest talking point is the inclusion of Thomas Meunier who has returned from injury.

Luckily for Rangers, Erling Haaland still isn't available nor is Giovanni Reyna, whose father Claudio played for Rangers between 1999 and 2001.

19:05

HERE'S HOW RANGERS LINE-UP

Giovanni Van Bronckhorst names the same Rangers side that started the famous 4-2 win at Dortmund last Thursday.

Aaron Ramsey misses out with injury and Manchester United loanee Amad Diallo again starts on the bench.

Borna Barisic was dropped to the bench in the draw with Dundee but returns to his usual left-back position tonight.
