Rangers suffer an agonising penalty shootout defeat in their fifth European final as Eintracht Frankfurt in an absorbing Europa League final.Breaking news

Rafael Borre crashed in the decisive spot kick after Aaron Ramsey was denied just moments earlier in front of a colossal Rangers support in the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium.

Those fans had been euphoric when the Scots took the lead through Joe Aribo’s ice-cool second-half finish in the sweltering cauldron in Seville.

However, Borre detonated raucous scenes in a jam-packed Frankfurt end 12 minutes later as he steered in a soft equaliser to send this sapping contest to extra time and penalties.

Rangers’ players crumpled to their feet as Frankfurt’s bench spewed on to the pitch as they heralded in their own second European trophy.
