Giovanni van Bronckhorst saw his team lose against RB Leipzig in the first leg of the Europa League semi-final.

The manager plans to counter the loss with an attacking approach in the second leg scheduled for next week at Ibrox.

“I don’t think we’re going to play the same way like we did today,” he said. “You know, we have to win.

“We have to win by a margin of two and of course, one goal gets us back into the tie. I think we’re capable in doing so with respecting the quality of the opponent but, you know, we had many, many great European nights at home.

“The fans will definitely give us energy and will give us all the, all the old ambiance we need. And my players should, should fight for the final.”

“I think we defended and we played really well,” van Bronckhorst said. “We wanted to get a good result.

“I think first half we were well organised, especially defensively, to give not many chances away.

“Of course, with the quality of their players you know they will always create something but we made it really difficult for them to create chances. I think the first half we defended really well and we weren’t comfortable on the ball and in the second half we changed a little bit our set-up, especially in midfield and we were much more confident and created some chances.

“It’s always disappointing that you lose a goal so late in the game, but it’s a 1-0 defeat and we know what to do next week.

“It’s a final in Seville we can qualify for that we have to give everything for.

“I’m sure that our home game at Ibrox will give us a lot of energy to overcome Leipzig.”
