Rangers launch Europa League campaign against Prodgres Niederkorn of Luxembourg

Caixinha has already made a raft of signings this summer, with more on the way, and he will be targeting progress in the Europa League to give the Gers a boost.

They will be seeded in every qualifying round they play.

Rangers have been drawn to face Progres Niederkorn in the first qualifying round of the Europa League.

Skenderbeu, whose six-year domination of Albanian football came to an end only this year when they finished third, will face an easy test against Andorra's Sant Julia in the first qualifying round.




Niederkorn have failed to win any of their 12 matches in Europe, scoring only once. They were eliminated in the first qualifying round previous year after a 5-3 aggregate loss to Estonian side Nomme Kalju. They lost 3-0 on aggregate to Shamrock Rovers in the 2015/16 Europa league.

Both sides will need to negotiate three qualifying rounds if they are to reach the group stages of the competition. Champions League play-off losers automatically make it to the Europa League group stage like Skenderbeu did in the 2015-16 campaign.

The Welsh champions were drawn at home for the first leg, with the fixture set to take place on the 27/28 June.
