‘Level-headed’ Rangers ready for Frankfurt

Rangers will not get carried away despite being only one game from making history when they play Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League final, midfielder Aaron Ramsey has said.

The Scottish club, who are in their first European League final since finishing runners-up in the same competition in 2008, will be bidding to win a second continental trophy 50 years after they claimed the 1972 Cup Winners’ Cup.

“There’s a lot of energy around the place,” Ramsey said. “Just looking forward to [Wednesday], you’re one game away from making history.

“It’s a great group, a very level-headed squad, so there are no issues about anybody getting carried away.

“It’s obviously very difficult to reach this stage, you need a bit of luck along the way, but some of our performances have been brilliant. There is a lot of quality in this squad. I’m not surprised with what we’ve done and how we’ve gone about it.”

Ramsey did not feature in either leg of the semi-final tie against RB Leipzig, but started two of Rangers’ last three league games of the season.

The Wales midfielder said he was hoping to make up for missing Arsenal’s 4-1 defeat by Chelsea in the 2019 Europa League final due to a hamstring injury.

“It’s definitely right up there, to play in a final in a European competition,” added Ramsey.

“They don’t come around very often. Unfortunately I missed the Arsenal one a few years back, hopefully I can make up for it in this one.”

Frankfurt, who finished 11th in the Bundesliga this season, are the third German club Rangers will have faced in this edition of the tournament, having already knocked out Borussia Dortmund and Leipzig in earlier rounds.
