The Europa League playoff round draw has thrown up a familiar opponent for Rangers should they get past Maribor – Luxembourg outfit Progres Niederkorn!

Progres inflicted what was described as the worst result in the Glasgow team’s history after humbling them 2-1 across two legs in the first qualifying round.

They are currently drawn against Russian Premier League outfit FC Ufa in the third qualifying round, and should they pull off a huge result against the Russians, they’ll play the winner of Rangers’ tie with Maribor for a spot in the Europa League proper.

Unsurprisingly, Rangers fans are salivating at the prospect at meeting the team that humbled Pedro Caixinha’s team last year. Needless to say, under Gerrard Rangers fans are confident they can get their revenge.

Rangers have a tough tie with Maribor to focus on first, but should they get though the two legs, you won’t find many fans who wouldn’t love to face off against Progres and redeem one of the worst results in the club’s history.
