Former Scotland international, Pat Nevin, has told former Arsenal midfielder, Aaron Ramsey that the memories of his penalty miss against Frankfurt in the final of the Europa League on Wednesday will forever stay with him.
Nevin, who hailed the ‘astonishingly high’ level of the spot kicks in the shoot-out, said the Scottish giants, Rangers, will be ‘kicking themselves’ after the missed opportunity to lift the trophy.
Rafael Borre cancelled out Joe Aribo’s opener for Rangers in Seville to take the game into extra time.
Ramsey, who was brought on in the final minutes of extra time, stepped up but saw his effort saved by goalkeeper, Kevin Trapp.
Frankfurt’s goal scorer Borre stepped up again to score the winner and seal a 5-4 win.
“Every time you lose a cup final is torture. After the work they put in, after the fact they got better as the game went on,” he told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“They really believed. The standard of penalties was astonishingly high except for Ramsey. He has to live with that for the rest of his life.
“What an opportunity Rangers had. They’ll kick themselves. It was there to be won.”
