Premier Sports confirm plans to screen next Rangers Europa League clash

Premier Sports have confirmed their intention to screen Rangers’ upcoming Europa League qualifying fixture against Lincoln Red Imps FC.

The Gers found out on Monday that they had received a trip to Gibraltar as their first European assignment of the 2020/21 campaign.

Steven Gerrard’s men went all the way to the Last 16 last season before crashing out to a strong Bayer Leverkusen side, but they have three tough rounds of one-leg qualifying to get through before they reach the competition proper again.


Usually, Rangers would be able to count on a sizeable contingent of away supporters to help them through potential banana skin away fixtures, but with UEFA declaring no fans will be allowed in stadia during their club competitions in September, the players will have to go it alone for the foreseeable future.

At least Bears will be able to tune in on TV, though, following Premier Sports’ announcement.

The broadcaster confirmed their intention to host the clash on 17 September, although they were not yet in a position to provide a confirmed kick-off time.

The UEFA website currently states that the match is due to begin at 4pm.

Rangers are heavy favourites going into the clash, given their performances in this competition over the last two seasons and their opponent’s lack of European pedigree.

However, Lincoln did produce a shock home win over Celtic back in 2016 and are regularly crowned champions of the Gibraltar Premier Division.

The Gers have had difficulties playing on artificial surfaces in the past, too, so they cannot afford to take this second round qualifier lightly.
