Rangers fan Seville omen as RB Leipzig support come up short - report

Rangers’ Europa League rivals RB Leipzig have only sold half their tickets for their Europa League semi-final trip to Ibrox.

The Scottish Daily Express are claiming that the German side’s fans have only taken up 1000 of their 2200 briefs for the game with the Gers support to outnumber Leipzig fans 50/1.

The situation appears to highlight the lack of feeling surrounding the German side, who have been heavily criticised in their home country for the mass investment from Red Bull.

Created by the energy drink giant in 2009, Red Bull then bought over Rasenballsport in the East German town and ploughed millions into the side.

The only East German participant in the Bundesliga, there are a growing number of fans of the club in that side of the country.

But the fact they are not taking fans in their numbers to Ibrox serves as an interesting omen regarding the potential spectacle should they make the final in Seville.

RB Leipzig in hunt for first major trophy ahead of Rangers battle

RB Leipzig are yet to win a major trophy and have reached the DFB Pokal Final this season and lead 1-0 in their Europa League semi with Rangers.

There is no doubt that in terms of a spectacle, Rangers would bring 100s of thousands to Seville and already take thousands everywhere they go.

The Ibrox side’s support is dedicated and will travel from across the globe to Spain to see their side compete for a European trophy if they can get past the German club.

If this report is true, and RB Leipzig cannot muster the following to defend their side in one of football’s most ferocious arenas, then if you ask us, they’re not worthy of a trip to Spain either.

Rangers have confirmed a minute’s silence will be held at Ibrox against RB Leipzig to remember the legendary Ibrox kitman.
