Undercover Rangers fan spotted behind enemy lines at Frankfurt match

A fan has been pictured hoisting high a Rangers scarf as Mainz held Europa League rivals Frankfurt to a draw in their final match before the competition’s Final.

The Gers are set to face off against the Bundesliga club in Seville with immortality awaiting the victor as both sets of fans prepare to take tens of thousands to Spain.

But before the match there was the small matter of weekend fixtures and whilst Rangers had the pleasure of resting key players against Hearts Frankfurt started a strong squad for the trip to Mainz.

And as the two clubs played out a 2-2 draw one cheeky Rangers fan showed up to the match with a Rangers scarf as the curtain came down on the Bundesliga season [Mainz].

We’re not sure which team this gentleman supports but perhaps he’s one of the thousands of Gers fans taking the unorthodox route to Seville via other European countries.

With flights filled to the brim supporters are taking planes, train and automobiles via the continent – and some even via North Africa – to make it to Seville for the game.

Rangers fan spotted as Frankfurt draw with Mainz

Frankfurt’s final match this season ended in disappointment despite the side coming back from a goal down to go in front in Mainz.

The German side have had a disappointing season in the country’s top flight with European football very much the focus.

Marten Invargtsen got a double on the day and gave Mainz the lead after only 10 minutes before Brazilian centre-back Tuta got an equaliser.

Rafael Santos Borre then put Frankfurt up ahead of halftime but Mainz were level minutes after the restart and we bet that Rangers fan was buzzing to Invargtsen level proceedings.

The result means Mainz finish above Frankfurt in the Bundesliga table, finishing four points ahead of Die Adler (11th) in 8th place.

Rangers have already defeated German competition to reach the Europa League final, having knocked out Borussia Dortmund (2nd) and RB Leipzig (4th).

Meanwhile, Rangers fans are furious amid accusations a leading journalist has stoked tensions ahead of the club’s trip to Seville.
