Rangers bowed out of the Europa League with defeat to Bayer Leverkusen in Germany but with £7m added to the club’s balance sheet.

Steven Gerrard’s side went into the Round of 16 return clash needing a miracle in the Bay Arena after losing the first leg at Ibrox 3-1 in March before football was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The home side dominated the match with Moussa Diaby scoring the only goal of the game in the second half to complete a comfortable 4-1 aggregate win.

The Germans now face Inter Milan in Monday’s quarter-final in Dusseldorf.

Rangers, though, can take some solace from the fact their run in the competition earned them nearly £7 million.
