“It’s a big disappointment because we all wanted it. We have made every effort to win this competition. Unfortunately we run into an invincible Rangers team for 4 months“adds the French.
“It was not an easy game“ends the Standard coach.”We got off to a bad start, against Rangers, with many absent from Covid, penalties a bit unfortunate.
