Fiorentina manager Cesare Prandelli and president Andrea Della Valle accused Rangers of reaching the UEFA Cup final by using deliberately negative tactics.

The Italians dominated Thursday night´s second leg of the semi-final in Florence and repeatedly pounded the Rangers defence, who kept a clean sheet thanks to some brave play and plenty of luck as Fiorentina wasted chance after chance.

Rangers then secured victory in a penalty shootout and Prandelli said: "I´m sure we deserved to reach the final. Rangers came here just to stop us playing our best football and got the result they wanted."
