Rangers defender James Tavernier has been crowned as top scorer of the 2021/22 UEFA Europa League season after his seven goals for the competition runners-up.

The Scottish side's captain and right-back could not add to his tally in the Seville final but had already done enough to finish ahead of Lyon forward Karl Toko Ekambi and Galeno, who swapped Braga for Porto in January. All seven of Tavernier's goals came in the knockout rounds, with at least one in each round until Rangers lost the decider on penalties.

In terms of assists, Frankfurt's Filip Kostić finished out in front on six after increasing his lead with the decisive pass for Rafael Borré's equaliser against Rangers at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán. That put the Serbian on nine goal involvements in total (goals and assists combined) – level with Tavernier.
