Rangers out of Europa League after Dejan Ljubicic fires late winner for Rapid Vienna





Rangers crashed out of the Europa League on Thursday after falling 1-0 at Rapid Vienna. Steven Gerrard’s Rangers, who had to win in Vienna in their final group game in order to qualify for the last 32, finish third in Group G, two points behind Rapid thanks to Dejan Ljubicic’s 84th-minute winner, which sees the Austrians through to the knockout stages, level on 10 points with group winners Villarreal.


The Spaniards ensured top spot by beating bottom club Spartak Moscow 2-0 thanks to goals from Samuel Chukwueze and Karl Toko Ekambi.




Rangers came close to breaking the deadlock in the 21st minute of a match with few shots and little incident when Connor Goldson headed the ball against the bar, but Ljubicic rolled home the winner late on to seal Rangers’ fate.
