Eintracht Frankfurt and Rangers contest the final of the 2021/22 Europa League.

The Scottish side’s journey began in the play-off round of the competition last August, a team then under the management of Steven Gerrard overcoming Armenian side Alashkert with a scratchy 1-0 aggregate win.

Now managed by Giovanni van Bronckhorst, Rangers have knocked out two German sides on their way to the final.

They meet another in Eintracht Frankfurt, who have progressed through the rounds without defeat and beat West Ham in the semi-finals.
