Rangers will face FC Midtjylland in the next round of Europa League qualifying, should they get past Progres Niederkorn, and the Ibrox faithful are happy with the draw.
In Monday’s third round Europa League draw Steven Gerrard’s men were drawn against Danish cup winners FC Midtjylland. The Gers must first get past old foes Progres of Luxembourg.
The minows knocked the Ibrox side out of the same tournament two years ago and the fans will be hoping for an easier time of it under Gerrard than Pedro Caixinha. Despite winning the home leg, Caixinha’s team were beaten in Luxembourg and sent home in one of the worst nights in the club’s history.
The Gers will be hoping to replicate last season’s feat of reaching the group stages, in which Gerrard’s side were unlucky to finish third in a strong group alongside Villareal, Spartak Moscow and Rapid Vienna.
Europe was a great source of memorable moments and goals last term, and here’s what Rangers fans had to say about the draw in this year’s competition…
Weighted balls again! Great draw but let’s get past Progres first and rest assured that is being drilled home by SG and coaching staff right now.??????

Favourable draw, happy with that.
Really hope we pump this lot on Thursday, finish the tie in the first leg.

That’s not a bad outcome, could’ve been a lot worse!
But first we need to see off Progres

Decent draw now but means we won’t be seeded if we progress to the playoff round

Happy enough with that to be honest still be a test for us Mon the Gers ?? that’s should we get by progress, I don’t think it should be a problem this time round. So much quality in our squad now from back to front…
