Rangers drawn to face Progres Niederkorn in Europa League first qualifying round

Celtic and Barcelona players line up for the Champions League anthem at the Nou Camp

Celtic and Barcelona players line up for the Champions League anthem at the Nou Camp

Partizani, who previous year replaced banned Skenderbeu in the Champions League qualifying campaign, were drawn against Bulgaria's Botev Plovdiv in the first Europa League round.

Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham have all earned automatic spots into the Champions League group stage, but five British sides will have to go through qualification to join them.

They play their matches at the Stade Jos Haupert, which holds fewer than 5,000 spectators.

If Rangers are able to navigate their way through the Europa League qualifiers to the group stage of the competition, it would hand the club a big financial boost as they seek to close the gap to Celtic.

Fellow Scottish Premiership side St Johnstone will face FK Trakai of Lithuania in their tie, also at home in the first leg.

The Albanian teams will play their first round qualification matches in late June and early July.

Should TNS clear the first round of qualifying, they will then face HNK Rijeka, who finished top of the Croatian HNL table - two points ahead of Dinamo Zagreb.

TNS, who won their 11th title in 2016-17, are seeded and will face opposition from either Armenia, Estonia, Gibraltar, San Marino or Kosovo.
