Around 20,000 Gers supporters were left without water as refreshment kiosks at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium were closed ahead of kick-off against Eintracht Frankfurt on Wednesday night.

Some Rangers fans resorted to drinking water from toilet taps as temperatures soared above 30 degrees celsius inside the exposed arena and the club were forced to contact Uefa regarding the situation.

Uefa has now issued an apology with a spokesperson telling the Herald and Times: "Even though the quantity of food and beverages planned by concessionaires was much bigger than what is usually served during a domestic sold out match at the Sanchez Pizjuan stadium, it still was not enough to meet the extraordinary demand of the day and UEFA wishes to sincerely apologise to fans for the inconvenience created."
