It's the hottest ticket in town.

Rangers fans across Scotland are flocking to travel websites to book their flights to Spain for the Europa League final.

The clash against Frankfurt will take place in Seville but a direct flight to the Andalusia city will be almost impossible to find.

No airport in Scotland provides the trip and direct flights from other UK destinations have already been snapped up.

So fans are exploring realistic travel routes to ensure they'll be in Seville to cheer on Giovanni van Bronckhorst's men.

Football Scotland has looked at five alternative destinations for Rangers fans to fly to.

It's not even in Spain, but the Portuguese city is arguably the best bet for Rangers fans to fly to.

Faro is one of the closest alternatives to Seville and it's accessible via UK airports.

You can fly from Edinburgh but you'd be required to change at another airport.

But fans can fly direct from London, Manchester and Durham, amongst others.

A bus from Faro to Seville takes under 2 hours and prices start from as little as £10.

The Andalusian city, on the Mediterranean cost, is a popular holiday destination

Rangers fans can fly directly to Malaga from both Glasgow and Edinburgh - but getting a space could be tough!

It's relatively straight forward to get to Seville, with a train taking just under 2 hours and priced at £17.

The Spanish capital is further away than Faro or Malaga but it's easily accessible from Scotland.

Flights regularly depart from all three Scottish airports - Glasgow, Edinburgh and Prestwick.

EasyJet and Ryanair both offer direct flights but expect the cost to be higher than usual!

It will take around two and a half hours to reach Madrid from Malaga by train.

That will cost under £30 but there is a bus option but it takes up to six hours.

The closest alternative to flying directly to Seville.

Rangers fans can't fly to Jerez from Scotland but flights are available from London, although you'd need to switch at Madrid.

But getting from Jerez to Seville by train takes just one hour and it costs less than a tenner!

It might not be the most popular route so prices are likely to be affordable than other destinations.

Barca is absolutely miles away from Seville but the Catalan capital holds a special appeal to Rangers fans.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Light Blues' European Cup Winners' Cup triumph over Dynamo Moscow in 1972.

The game was famously played in the Nou Camp and Rangers fans could fancy a trip to memory lane by visiting Barcelona on their way to Seville.

You can fly directly to Barca from Edinburgh, while a change is required is heading off from Glasgow.

A train to Seville costs around £100 and it takes approximately six hours but it could be worth it to witness James Tavernier lift the trophy.
