Rangers charged by UEFA after fans entered pitch following Borussia Dortmund win

RANGERS have been charged by UEFA after fans entered the pitch during their famous Europa League win against Borussia Dortmund.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side drew 2-2 on the night with the German giants last Thursday at Ibrox. 

That result was enough for the Gers to proceed to the last-16 of the competition, with a 6-4 aggregate victory.

However, amid the wild celebrations at full-time, the club say that some fans invaded the field in order to approach players for their shirts. 

Now, Rangers say UEFA have opened disciplinary action against the club as a result. 

They have warned their supporters that they have a “zero-tolerance approach” to those who enter the field of play, and that their players have been advised not to provide their jerseys to fans.

A club statement reads: “Rangers would like to remind fans that entering the field of play at any time is unacceptable and forbidden.

“The club have now been informed by UEFA that they have opened disciplinary proceedings after Thursday’s game v Borussia Dortmund due to children entering the pitch area.

“We have a zero-tolerance approach to those invading the pitch. In particular, any parent found to assist their child in entering the pitch area will be subject to club disciplinary policy.

“Our players have been advised that should not provide a shirt to any spectator entering the pitch area.”
