West Ham duo Craig Dawson and Declan Rice have both been named in the UEFA Europa League Team of the Year.

David Moyes’ side made it through to the semi-final stage where they were knocked out by eventual winners Eintracht Frankfurt after a memorable campaign.

Both Dawson and Rice impressed as West Ham, battling relegation when Moyes arrived for the second time in late-2019, overcome European royalty Sevilla and Lyon on their way to the last four.

Rangers, meanwhile, were also well-represented after making it all the way to the final.

Competition top-scorer James Tavernier was joined by Ibrox teammates Ryan Kent and Calvin Bassey following their dramatic journey to the showpiece in Seville, where they lost on penalties.

Naturally, Frankfurt largely made up the rest of the XI with Kevin Trapp, Filip Kostic (voted player of the tournament), Rafa Borre and Martin Hinteregger all named.

Christopher Nkuku and Martin Laimer, both of the other semi-finalists RB Leipzig, made up the rest.
