‘Just one step further’: Aaron Ramsey targets Europa League glory with Rangers SNS Group

Aaron Ramsey says Rangers need to give everything to take the final step and lift the Europa League trophy in Seville.

The Ibrox club have travelled to face Eintracht Frankfurt in Wednesday’s final, hoping to win a European title for the first time since 1972.

Wales international Ramsey, on loan at Rangers from Juventus, believes that’s more than possible given the teams that have been beaten so far, and just need one final effort.

“There’s a lot of excitement around the club,” the midfielder said. “We’ve put ourselves in an unbelievable position and we’ve produced some memorable results and performances throughout this campaign.

“Now it’s just one step further. We’re there. So we have a chance of creating history with this club.

“We’ve adapted our game plan throughout the competition. Now it’s just about putting it into one game and giving absolutely everything to walk off that pitch with the trophy.”

For a player that’s played in major matches with Arsenal and Juventus, as well as reaching the last four of the European Championships with Wales, it’s an unexpected challenge and one that Ramsey says is on a level with the big games he’s faced previously in his career.

“It’s definitely right up there,” he said. “To play in the final of a European competition, that doesn’t come around very often.

“Unfortunately I missed the Arsenal one a few years back but hopefully I can make up for it with this one.

“Obviously we got to the final that year and lost to Chelsea but for me to miss it through injury was tough.

“Hopefully I get another opportunity and can make up for that.”
