It has been a remarkable adventure for Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side who have dispatched Borussia Dortmund, Red Star Belgrade, Braga and RB Leipzig to reach the club’s first European final in 14 years.
Bundesliga outfit Frankfurt, who knocked out Spanish giants Barcelona in the quarter-finals before ending West Ham’s hopes of an all-British final will provide tough opposition in what promises to be an unmissable clash.
Rangers finished runners-up in the 2008 UEFA Cup Final to Zenit St. Petersburg and they will be targeting a second European trophy in 50 years after clinching the 1972 Cup Winners’ Cup.
The Light Blues will be backed by 100,000 travelling supporters in the south of Spain, with 9,500 fans estimated inside the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium.
Should the Gers prevail, it will be a triumph built on resilience and squad depth after the loss of key players, including top goal scorer Alfredo Morelos.
The Colombian travelled with the squad yesterday to provide his support alongside Kemar Roofe who has won his fitness battle after sustaining a knee injury during the Scottish Cup semi-final win over Celtic five weeks ago.
Whether he is risked from the start remains unclear, with Fashion Sakala remaining the most obvious replacement to spearhead the Gers frontline, while the versatile Joe Aribo could also be deployed in a more advanced role.
The match will be Rangers’ 19th game of a European campaign which started with defeat against Swedish side Malmo in the Champions League qualifiers back in August.
Frankfurt, who finished 11th in the Bundesliga, stand in their way in what will be just the second meeting between the sides.
The only other previous encounters came in the semi-final of the 1959/60 European Cup when the Ibrox club lost 6-3 and 6-1 over two legs to bow out 12-4 on aggregate.

What’s the team news ahead of Eintracht Frankfurt vs Rangers?
Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst has received a major boost after striker Kemar Roofe was declared fit after five weeks out with a knee injury.
The Jamaican returned to full training with his team-mates on Monday morning prior to boarding their flight to Seville and had been given every opportunity to prove his fitness.
He is now likely to feature against Frankfurt on Wednesday, while Aaron Ramsey, who has enjoyed his best run of form since joining the Ibrox side on loan from Juventus in January, could be in contention to start.
Alfredo Morelos (thigh), Ianis Hagi (knee) and Filip Helander (foot) are sidelined until pre-season after undergoing surgery.
Youngsters Leon King and Alex Lowry are part of the travelling squad but are unlikely to feature.
Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Van Bronckhorst confirmed: “Kemar is available. He trained for the first time with us yesterday (Monday). He had individual training before that and he will be training later.
“He will be in the squad and if I want to use him he is available. It’s a boost for us.
“He got injured a couple of weeks ago, he was in a good spell, very important for the team. I’m happy that he is back because he was working hard to be ready for the Leipzig game.
“He didn’t make it so we just extended it for him for the final. He is here and he is ready to play his part.”
Roofe, who hasn’t played since suffering the injury in the Scottish Cup semi-final win over Celtic, has scored 17 goals this season from 17 starts and 16 substitute appearances.
Eintracht Frankfurt head coach Oliver Glasner has played down his squad’s injury concerns following their 2-2 draw against Mainz in their final domestic game of the campaign.
Glasner surprisingly named a full strength but French defender Evan Ndicka limped off injured with blisters on his feet. Brazilian star Tuta also reported an issue and doubts remains over Danny da Costa’s involvement.
Diant Ramaj and Martin Hinteregger are expected to miss out, while Setfan Ilsanker and Erik Durm are ineligible.
