Rangers v Eintracht Frankfurt: When is the Europa League final? Date, location, kick-off time, ticket details

Rangers have made history by defeating RB Leipzig 3-2 on aggregate to reach the 2022 Europa League final.

Last season's Scottish champions claimed a 3-1 victory in the semi-final second leg at an energy-charged Ibrox Stadium to overturn a 1-0 deficit from the first leg in Germany and reach their first European final in 14 years and their seventh of all-time.

Rangers will face another Bundesliga side in the final after the other last four tie saw Eintracht Frankfurt claim a 3-1 aggregate win over West Ham, with the Germans winning the second leg 1-0 against the 10-man Hammers after a 2-1 win in London last week.
