Bruno Rangel Domingues (12 December 1981 – 28 November 2016) was a Brazilian footballer who last played as a striker for Chapecoense.

Club career

Born in Campos dos Goytacazes, Rio de Janeiro, Rangel started playing as a senior for hometown club Goytacaz in 2002. In 2004, he moved to cross-town rivals Americano, but was rarely used at the club.[1] After leaving the club in 2006, he worked as a general assistant for Caixa Econômica Federal[2] before joining Ananindeua.[3]

On 16 December 2006 Rangel renewed with the club, and subsequently represented Angra dos Reis, Macaé, Bonsucesso and Baraúnas[4] before returning to Pará in 2009, with Águia de Marabá.[5] After being the latter's top goalscorer in 2009 Série C with six goals in only seven matches, he signed for Paysandu on 1 December 2009.[6]

On 23 December 2010, Rangel moved to Guarani also in the third division.[7] He rescinded with the club the following 26 July,[8] and agreed to a contract with Joinville just hours later.[9] Released in June 2011,[10] he subsequently joined Metropolitano.[11]

In 2013, Rangel signed for Chapecoense. He also became a prolific striker during his first season at the club, scoring a career-best 31 goals in only 34 league matches; his side also achieved promotion to Série A. On 9 January of the following year he moved abroad for the first time in his career, joining Qatar Stars League side Al-Arabi SC.[12]

After appearing rarely, Rangel returned to Chape on 1 June 2014.[13] He made his re-debut on 19 July, in a 1–0 away win against São Paulo, and scored his first goal on 30 August in a 2–4 loss at Cruzeiro.

On 26 July 2015, Rangel scored all his team's goals in a 2–1 home win against Fluminense. He repeated the feat on 28 October, in a Copa Sudamericana home success over River Plate, but it was not enough to ensure qualification to the following round. On 12 December 2015, he renewed his contract for a further year.[14]

Rangel finished the 2016 Campeonato Catarinense as both champion and top goalscorer, with ten goals under his name; during the tournament he became Chape's biggest goalscorer, surpassing Índio.[15] On 1 June 2016 he scored a hat-trick in a 4–3 away win against Coritiba,[16] and reached his 80th goal for the club on 7 September in a 2–2 draw against Santa Cruz, through a penalty kick.[17]

On 29 October 2016, again from the spot, Rangel scored his last goal as a footballer, in a 1–1 away draw against Corinthians.[15]


On 28 November 2016, whilst at the service of Chapecoense, Rangel was among the fatalities of the LaMia Airlines Flight 2933 accident in the Colombian village of Cerro Gordo, La Unión, Antioquia.[18]
