Video: Some Scenes at Rugby Park as Kilmarnock Beat Rangers to Secure Europe

There were some scenes at Rugby Park after Kilmarnock beat Rangers to secure European football next season.

Steve Clarke’s side went into today’s final Scottish Premiership game of the campaign knowing that a win would most likely see them secure third and qualification for the Europa League.

And they got a 2-1 win to do just that, with Chris Burke and Eamonn Brophy scoring their goals.

It was Burke who opened the scoring and Rangers got level through Alfredo Morelos in the second half.

But a penalty gave Brophy the opportunity to hit a late winner – and he produced the goods to secure Europe.

The 2-1 win means Aberdeen’s 2-1 victory away at Hibs meant nothing in the battle for third.

The scenes at Rugby Park afterwards were brilliant:

How good is that?

Kilmarnock will enter Europa League qualifying alongside Rangers next season and will fancy their chances of doing something if they can keep the majority of their squad.

But it’s believed Clarke is unlikely to be around for it – as reports link him with Scotland.
