Rangers, Frankfurt to make UEFA recommendations after EL final concerns

Rangers, Eintracht Frankfurt and Football Supporters Europe (FSE) will make recommendations to UEFA following major concerns at the Europa League final in Seville.

The two clubs alongside FSE - who are an independent, non-profit association of fans recognised as a representative body on fan issues by UEFA - are working together after receiving a "huge amount of complaints and witness statements" from supporters

Rangers already reported "major concerns" around the treatment of supporters including "overzealous" search procedures at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium which resulted in police removing battery packs, ear pods and ladies' make-up bags - all items which were permitted.

The clubs also raised concerns over facilities within the stadium including a lack of bottled water which Rangers said caused "severe distress" to many supporters as the temperature exceeded 30 degrees.

All three parties believe there could have been even more severe problems on the night were it not for the calm actions of the fans.
