Rangers 1-3 Ajax: Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side record worst campaign in CL history

Rangers recorded the worst campaign in Champions League history as they lost 3-1 to Ajax in their final group match.

Rangers needed five-goal swing to beat Ajax to third place and the Europa League while knowing a two-goal defeat would leave them tagged as statistically the competition’s worst side.

Goals from Steven Berghuis, Mohammed Kudus and Francisco Conceicao made it six straight defeats for Ibrox men, and a James Tavernier penalty was not enough to prevent them registering a goal difference of minus 20.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side are the first Scottish team to lose all of their group matches in Europe’s top competition, while Ajax finished in third to secure a place in the knockout play-off round of the Europa League.
