Rangers are in the Europa League final and Ibrox were absolutely bouncing back – literally!

The faithful Gersois created quite a din throughout the semi-final second leg and at the full-time whistle, the stadium burst.

A 3-2 aggregate win over RB Leipzing in the Bundesliga propelled them to the final in Sevilla and the fans made their emotion felt.

Our own Ally McCoist watched in awe – and may well have partied late into the night with Alan Brazil struggling to join him on the talkSPORT breakfast.

He told BT SPORT: “I can’t tell you how proud I am of this team.

“I’ve been lucky enough to come here and I’ve seen wins over Bayern Munich, I’ve seen wins over Dynamo Kyiv, I’ve seen wins over Leeds United but the atmosphere tonight has been the best – the best!”

He’s not wrong !

Video from the night showed the BT gantry swinging up and down dramatically as supporters made sure the night’s goalscorers James Tavernier, Glen Kamara and John Lundstrum felt their presence.


talkSPORT host Adrian Durham was also present and confirmed the stadium was definitely rocking.

He said in Brazil: “It was absolutely amazing. I’ve been watching football for 50 years and I’ve never seen such an atmosphere. I have attended great matches all over the world.

“The big stand was literally shaking. I’m not even kidding. It’s a cliché but it was absolutely true. It was shaking. It was absolutely breathtaking.

“Baby Ibrox, it’s just different,” Ianis Hagi tweeted after the game – and he’s right.

But as supporters of Glasgow’s light blue side partied the night away, one of them rang the Sports Bar.

He’d peeked into his cupboard and found Jamie O’Hara’s recipes – and he wasn’t going to let him forget them.

“Jamie, I have a question for you,” Steve said sarcastically. “About, maybe a year ago, you announced Rangers on the radio and said the job at Bournemouth was more important than the job of Rangers.

“I did it,” confirmed the former Tottenham midfielder.

The fan continued: “I hope you have an egg on your face tonight my son because you have it. Fair play you are fattening Rangers [now] but how stupid do you feel?

“Not really. You make me change my mind, I kind of want Frankfurt to win now,” O’Hara joked after the call.

“I took stick for that, guys. We all make mistakes. I said it was bigger work, I meant better, we tackled this over a year ago.

“Well done tonight. You deserve everything you have. It was an amazing performance to get there.

But O’Hara had one last thing to say.

Asked if he still felt the same, he said: “Yes – because Bournemouth are in the Premier League now.”

He better hope Ally doesn’t find him…
