Erling Haaland spotted sulking in stands as Borussia Dortmund suffer Rangers defeat

Borussia Dortmund hotshot Erling Haaland has been snapped sulking after watching his side get battered by Rangers in the Europa League.

The Bundesliga outfit were left stunned after Rangers opened up a 4-1 lead an hour into their first-leg tie at the Westfalenstadion.

Dortmund have already been dumped out of the Champions League after a disappointing group campaign.

But now their spot in the Europa League is already in grave jeopardy after their 4-2 loss.

And it was all too much to bear for their star man, who did not look impressed when he was captured in the stands during the crunch clash on Thursday night.

Dortmund boss Marco Rose chose not to throw Haaland into the action after the Norwegian superstar only just made his return to training after an injury scare.

But it could be a decision that comes back to haunt him - with Dortmund now facing a huge task to overhaul the deficit ahead of the second-leg clash at Ibrox.

The reigning Scottish champions surged into a shock two goal lead in Germany thanks to two quick-fire goals from James Tavernier and Alfredo Morales.

Tavernier's 37th minute penalty was followed up by Morelos just four minutes later before John Lundstram added a third for the Gers just four minutes after the break.

Dortmund wonderkid Jude Bellingham rifled home to give the hosts hope of mounting a comeback, but Dan-Axel Zagadou turned Morelos' striker into his own net to restore Rangers three-goal cushion. Raphael Guerreiro netted to give Dortmund a late lifeline.

While he was pictured in the stands looking glum, Haaland is unlikely to be a regular at Dortmund for much longer - and he may have played his final European game for the club with Dortmund on the brink of elimination at the hands of Rangers.

The striker is one of the most coveted players in the world after his phenomenal record at Dortmund, where he's fired 80 goals in just 79 games.

The 21-year-old has been persistently linked with a move away from Germany when a reported £67million release clause in his contract kicks in at the end of the season.

Barcelona, Real Madrid and a host of Premier League sides are set to lock horns in a frantic bid to snap up the ex-RB Salzburg man in the coming months.
