Eintracht Frankfurt won the Europa League final against Rangers on Wednesday in a shootout as Aaron Ramsey missed his attempt.
Rangers suffered an agonising penalty shootout defeat in their fifth European final as Eintracht Frankfurt triumphed in an absorbing Europa League decider.
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.
“It’s a hard one to take,” said midfielder John Lundstram to BT Sport. “I thought we could have played better. It’s hard to perform on a big stage like this, it’s nervous for everyone. I’m just severely disappointed.
“To let everyone down is just heartbreaking.”
Steven Davis, meanwhile, noted how reaching this point would be a difficult feat to replicate.
“It’s going to be a sore one to take,” he said. “We know how difficult it will be to get to this stage again.
“But I couldn’t be more proud of the the lads, staff and fans. We left everything out on the pitch.”
With the victory, Frankfurt secured automatic qualification to the 2022-23 Champions League group stage.
