Maribor protest rejected, Rangers result stands

The protest lodged by NK Maribor against the result of their UEFA Europa League play-off home game against Rangers FC has been rejected and the 2-1 scoreline has been upheld.

The chairman of the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body as judge sitting alone did not deal with the merits of the protest lodged by NK Maribor against the result of their UEFA Europa League play-off first leg against Rangers FC and has upheld the result of the match. Therefore the protest was rejected.

The Slovenian club recorded a 2-1 win against their Scottish visitors on 18 August, as under the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations a club is entitled to lodge a protest within 24 hours of the match in question and Maribor missed this deadline.

The UEFA ruling is open to appeal within three days of the notification of the decision.
