The German club, second in the Bundesliga, took on Rangers in the knockout playoffs of the Europe League, but were humbled 4-2 by the Glasgow club at home; at one stage Rangers were 4-1 up.


It was claimed that in the aftermath of the crushing defeat, the Dortmund hierarchy held a crisis meeting.



However, Hans-Joachim Watzke, the managing director of the Bundesliga club, has denied that there was a meeting after the Rangers defeat.


The managing director is adamant that any reports of a meeting taking place are completely false.



“Total bulls**t”, Watzke was quoted as saying by German journalist Thomas Nowag about the supposed meeting.


“There was no meeting.”



While the club have denied the existence of a crisis meeting, they will be hoping to improve in the second leg at Ibrox and turn around the deficit in Scotland.


Dortmund were missing their talisman Erling Haaland in the first leg of the tie and will be hoping to have him available, while the Gers will be looking to continue in the same vein as the first leg.
