Rangers midfielder John Lundstram believes their run to the Europa League final has done wonders for Scottish football. Their run has included a number of giant killings in the form of Borussia Dortmund, Red Star Belgrade, Braga, and RB Leipzig. They will now take on Eintracht Frankfurt in the final of the Europa League in Seville.
“I think the lads do deserve loads of credit, I think we stood up to the test. I think it’s brought out the best in each and every one of us. To be fair coming to Ibrox, I think we can beat anyone with the crowd behind us and now we’ve just got to do it on the European stage away from home,” Rangers midfielder John Lundstram said. “It’s a massive club to come into, a lot of pressure early doors. Hitting the ground running playing for Steven was massive for me. I think it added a bit of pressure playing for my childhood hero, but a run of games has helped me this season. You see it with better players than me at bigger clubs. It’s turned out the way it has and I’m absolutely over the moon. My main ambition was to play in Europe. Initially, it was to try and get the Champions League as I thought that it was achievable, but it wasn’t meant to be. To reach a final of a major competition is very special and I can’t wait for it.”
“I think we have done wonders for Scottish football in getting this far,” he added. “I remember Liverpool getting this far 4/5 years ago and my home city was absolutely buzzing. We got beat by Sevilla in the final and I remember how big it was for the club. So, for Rangers, it was absolutely massive.”
