(Rangers win 3-2 on penalties)
Rangers Under-23s booked their place in the King's Lynn Town Football Club Challenge Cup final with a penalty victory over their counterparts from Legia Warsaw after the two teams couldn't be separated at full time.
An entertaining encounter saw the Scottish giants take the lead in the 24th minute after good work from Serge Mantata-Atajkayi led to Kai Kennedy laying the ball off to Stephen Kelly for an emphatic finish.
Legia Warsaw levelled matters from a free-kick in the 58th minute when Radoseaw Pruchnik thumped home a delightful set-piece  from 25 yards out.
The Polish outfit took the lead seven minutes later as Rangers failed to deal with a corner and Bartosz Brodzinski was on hand to convert at the far post.
Rangers took the tie to penalties with a spot-kick of their own in the 85th minute from Jordan Houston following a handball in the box.
Rangers will go on to play the winners of today's (Saturday) clash between King's Lynn Town and Norwich City Under-23s at The Walks (3pm) in Sunday's final which will kick-off at 5pm.
Legia Warsaw will take on the losers in the third-place match at 2pm.
