Lincoln Red Imps Among Six Possible Opponents For Rangers in UEL Draw

Lincoln Red Imps are among the six possible opponents for Rangers in today’s Europa League draw.

Pedro Caixinha’s men are already back in training ahead of this European qualifying campaign kicking off on June 29th.

This year, UEFA have released groupings ahead of the draw being made later this afternoon and it’s confirmed that Rangers could be heading to the scene of Celtic’s embarrassing Champions League opening defeat last season.

Brendan Rodgers’ men may have routed Scottish football to secure an unbeaten domestic campaign, but it all started with a shock 1-0 defeat to Gibraltar minnows Lincoln Red Imps.

They’re among Rangers’ potential opponents, joining Progrès Niederkorn of Luxembourg, Zaria Balti of Moldova, Folgore of San Marino and Sant Julià of Andorra, per uefa.com.

St Johnstone fans also know where they could potentially be going after their grouping was revealed.

Tommy Wright’s men are seeded for qualifying, but could find themselves with the tough task of beating Irish side Shamrock Rovers if they’re drawn together.

Alongside Rovers, the Saints could play Faroe Islands side NSÍ Runavík, Latvians Liepāja, VPS Vaasa of Finland and Trakai of Lithuania.

The draw will be made in Switzerland by UEFA at 12pm, with the second round following at 1.30pm.
