Rangers fans have reacted to the news that the club will face SC Braga in the Europa League Round of 32.
The Gers qualified for the knockout stages by finishing as runners-up behind Porto in Group G, ahead of Dutch giants Feyenoord and Swiss champions Young Boys.
The final fixture against the Berne-based outfit on Thursday night was a tense affair at Ibrox, but Steven Gerrard’s side got over the line in the end with a 1-1 draw taking them a step further than they managed during his first season in charge.
Braga reached the last 32 having topped the Group K ahead of Wolves, Slovan Bratislava and Besiktas, remaining unbeaten across their six fixtures.
That suggests they are a very well organised European opponent, but their league form paints a more encouraging picture.
The Portuguese club are currently ninth in the Primeira Liga and they lost 1-0 at home to second-bottom placed Pacos Ferreira over the weekend.
The overall reaction from Bears on social media has been positive, considering the teams they’ve managed to avoid.
Inter Milan, Ajax, Manchester United, Arsenal and Benfica are just some of the sides who the Gers could have drawn.
Here’s a selection of reactions from Twitter:
