Rangers were knocked out of the Europa League following a tense last-16 second leg at Ibrox.

After a 1-1 draw in Prague, Steven Gerrard’s side came into it full of optimism, but it started poorly for the Scottish champions when Peter Olayinka headed the visitors ahead.

Rangers pushed for an equalizer and hurled Kemar Roofe into the fray, but the striker lasted just six minutes before being sent off for a high boot on Ondrej Kolar.

All was going wrong for the home team, but it had just started.

After 12 minutes, Leon Balogun scythed down Lukas Masopust, and Nicolae Stanciu – Slavia’s first-leg hero – curved in a stunner from the ensuing free-kick.

Slavia’s Ondrej Kudela sparked a furious debate on the touchline people are trying to spring in Glen Kamara’s ear.

But that was the extent of her contribution to Rangers’ Europa League campaign.

Relive the action as it unfolded right now.

Steven Gerrard has spoken out in defense of Glen Kamara after he was reportedly subjected to racist violence.

“It’s over to UEFA now. I hope it doesn’t get swept under the carpet. I 100% believe Glen [Kamara] and other players around it heard. “I’m proud of all of my players showing solidarity. The disappointing thing for me is there are people trying to defend the opposition player – calling us liars.”
