Impressive John Lundstram praised Gio van Bronckhorst’s tactical acumen that led them to the Europa League Final.

The Dutchman turned heads in a thrilling run to Seville and is targeting another night for the ages against Eintracht Frankfurt.

Lundstram has become an Ibrox favorite and his strike secured a 3-1 win over Leipzig, securing a place in the Finals.

And the former Sheffield United star was dumped by the former Feyenoord manager van Bronckhorst and his ability to outpace the opposition.

He said: “Tactically, he’s just an absolute genius. Honestly, his composure was always there and he instilled that in the whole team.

“The tactical switches that he put me where he wanted, in the back and then back in midfield. But it seemed to work and it was fantastic.

He added: “We’re just happy to be there.

“Whoever it is, West Ham or Frankfurt, get a huge achievement. But the players want to win it. Of course we do.

“Into a final, you don’t think otherwise. That’s thinking.”
