Dortmund delusion

Dortmund delusion…

Congratulations to Borussia Dortmund who will take on Real Madrid in the Champions League final at the start of next month after beating PSG over two legs to book their place in the final of the prestigious competition.

The Bundesliga side are aiming to win the trophy for the second time and most neutrals will be cheering on the Germans in the showpiece final at Wembley next month.

Meanwhile our friends over at Ibrox will certainly be cheering them on, and not because it has any bearing on them regarding European coefficient etc but for a different reason all together.

According to the deluded minds of theRangers supporters, Dortmund’s European glory somewhat shines a good light on them.

The reason? Well as we know the Ibrox side produced a magnificent result a couple of years back when they dumped the Bundesliga side out the Europa league on their way to the final.

A 4-2 victory in Dortmund is a decent result, as was holding them to a 2-2 draw at Ibrox as they advanced in the Europa league. That is not in question, you grudgingly have to applaud that.

But what that has to do with today’s two sides is anyone’s guess. The Dortmund side that were dumped out by theRangers is a completely different side than the one that is presently in a champions league final.

Only a handful of players remain from those two matches. Only two or three are considered first team starters in the present side. Not to mention they have a totally different manager and coaching staff.

And of course theRangers also have a different set of players, manager, and coaching staff. Both have two totally different sides, so any shouts of ‘look where they are now’ are completely irrelevant.

If Dortmund were to play theRangers at this moment, what would the outcome be? I think we can all hazard a guess.

And with Real Madrid reaching another Champions League final – they have won six European Cups and eight champions leagues and will be favourites to make in nine at Wembley, those same deluded Rangers supporters still go on about their group of clubs being the most successful in world football!

Imagine overhearing a conversation in the pub between one of their supporters and a Real Madrid fan hearing that claim! Hopefully tomorrow Celtic put them back in their box for another season.
