Rangers Fan Uses Tinder To Find Room For Europa League Final

Rangers Fan Uses Tinder To Find Room For Europa League Final

A Rangers fan has gone viral after he attempted to find a room for the Europa League final on Tinder.

It's 13 years since The Gers made the UEFA Cup final against Zenit in Manchester, which they lost 2-0.

Now The Gers will be hoping to go all the way, having reached the showpiece in Seville, where they will take on Eintracht Frankfurt.

One excited fan has made it out to the Spanish city for the final on Wednesday (18 May) - though he hasn't figured out where he's going to stay yet.

Keen to save a bit of cash, 23-year-old Connor has decided to go down an unconventional route by searching for a room on Tinder.

In a series of Love Actually-esque messages – handwritten in Spanish – the lad explained his peculiar proposal.

Donning a Rangers shirt and hat, Connor can be seen holding up sheets of paper, which read: "Hello Madam, my name is Connor and I'm a Rangers fan in Seville for the final.

"I'm desperately searching for a place to stay.

"Hotels cost more than 600 euros so if you have a free bed or a sofa I can sleep on, it would be a big help.

"I'd be prepared to pay for this service. Thank you. Come on Rangers!"

Clearly then, Connor is hoping fortune will favour the brave.

His unusual profile has gone viral, with one Twitter user sharing the photos with the caption: "tinder >>> airbnb"

The tweet has been liked more than 36,000 times, but there's still no word on whether he's secured a room - you'd like to think with this kind of viral success though, he will surely manage to secure a sofa somewhere.

Based on the reaction on Twitter, it seems people reckon he deserves a free stay for the night, purely for his cheek and ingenuity.

One person said: "This crazy f***ing genius has his house here. If it's one night and he's alone, free."

Another commented: "What is clear is that the fridge will be filled with beer."

A third added: "What a guy, I hope he gets lodging."
