The Gers won’t find out when the game takes place until it is clear whether or not FC Europa are also in action this week, with the two Gibraltarian sides sharing facilities.
Europa currently trail Sant Julia 3-2 on aggregate ahead of today’s second leg with defeat meaning the Rangers fixture taking place on Thursday.
It was thought that the details had been ironed out between the two clubs, with St. Joseph’s sporting director telling the Daily Record it had been arranged for Tuesday before UEFA disputed that.
“The decision has been made to play the match in Gibraltar next Tuesday, July 9 with a kick-off of 5.55pm local time (4.45 UK time)”, Hendrick told the Daily Record.

“Rangers needed some time to make arrangements so we agreed to this date.”
With FC Europa’s game not due to kick off until 1930 BST, it’ll be late tonight or early tomorrow before there is any official confirmation of when Rangers will finally get their season underway.
