Rangers fans react to Bayer Leverkusen goalscorer Leon Bailey’s Tweet

Leon Bailey near-killed Rangers’ chances of qualifying for the Europa League quarter-finals with a curling effort to put Bayer Leverkusen 3-1 up at Ibrox – and Rangers supporters have reacted to his post on Twitter.

Following a sensational 4-2 aggregate win over Portuguese side Braga, Rangers were drawn against a top side in Leverkusen – managed by former Ajax and Borussia Dortmund boss Peter Bosz.

Leverkusen took the lead in the first half as George Edmundson handled inside the penalty area. A check by VAR saw a penalty awarded to Leverkusen, which wonderkid and captain Kai Havertz scored – sending Allan McGregor the wrong way.

The Germans dominated throughout despite an improved Rangers in the second half. With Steven Gerrard’s side growing into the game, Leverkusen scored a second – as Charles Aranguiz lashed home a half-volley into the corner of McGregor’s net.

Edmundson made up for the handball to give Rangers a chance with an excellent header from a James Tavernier corner with 15 minutes left on the clock. But Bailey seemingly wrapped up the tie in the 88th minute.

The 22-year-old cut inside before curling an excellent effort past McGregor, and Rangers fans have reacted to Leverkusen’s £13.3million signing (ESPN) post on Twitter after the match which read: “Job done in Scotland.”
