PSG boss Thomas Tuchel has been given a history lesson by Rangers and some of the club’s fans after claiming he didn’t know if “any team in history has beaten another team with 9 men vs 11.”
The PSG boss was speaking after his side beat Metz 1-0 last night and saw them end the game with nine men, feeling it was some sort of historic achievement.

Rangers fans only need to cast their mind back to the Scottish League Cup final in 2010 as Kenny Miller scored the only goal of the game to bring the trophy back to Ibrox.
Kevin Thomson and Danny Wilson were both dismissed for the Light Blues before Miller’s 84th-minute header broke the Saints’ hearts and secured a famous win for Walter Smith’s side at Hampden.
The win would see Rangers lift the trophy for the 26th time in the club’s history and is still viewed by many as the archetypical Walter Smith performance as the Gers dug deep to beat the Buddies.
Fans on Twitter were joined by the club’s official account by letting the PSG boss that 9 men beating 11 isn’t a first – with one fan calling the game a ‘Walter Smith masterclass.”
Here are some of the comments from Rangers and some of the club’s fans:
