It feels like just yesterday Rangers finally ended their last Europa League campaign against Bayer Leverkusen. It was just six weeks ago but they're back in action again as they take on Lincoln Red Imps in the second qualifying round in Gibraltar. Rangers fans wouldn't normally see such a tie as a banana skin but the change in format makes these a wee bit more difficult than usual. A one-legged tie in Gibraltar means there's always potential for a slip-up, particularly when you consider the Red Imps beat Celtic 1-0 here four years ago. Rangers do have history on this ground as well, though, with a 4-0 win over St Joseph's last season. Ryan Jack scored the opener that day but won't be available after picking up an injury on Sunday. Alfredo Morelos could return to the starting lineup despite the injury he picked up in the 4-0 win over Dundee United on Sunday. Ryan Kent has been in incredible form so far this campaign but with a big game on Sunday against Hibs in the league but Steven Gerrard has decided to rest the wideman. RANGERS kick off their Europa League qualifying campaign with a one-off clash in Gibraltar this afternoon.

Rangers kick off their 2020/21 Europa League campaign against Lincoln Red Imps tonight. The trip to Gibraltar to play on the minnows' astro turf pitch needs to be professionally negotiated. Rangers reward for winning would be a meeting with Willem II in the next round, but how will Steven Gerrard line up in pursuit of victory? Rangers' domestic defensive work has been record-breaking, and Gerrard may well try to limit disruption to his backline. That said, Filip Helander may need to be carefully managed after being in Nations League action recently – which could hand George Edmundson an opportunity to impress in the back four. Rangers were hit by injuries in the weekend 4-0 victory over Dundee United, especially in midfield. Ally McCoist: Rangers hero Lethal striker Ally McCoist is best remembered for his spell as a Rangers player. He was a prolific striker, scoring 382 goals for the club. Key part of Rangers' success McCoist's goals helped Rangers enjoy sustained success. He won 10 league titles, and 10 domestic cups at Ibrox. Rangers' darkest moment McCoist stepped in as Rangers manager at the club's darkest hour. Ryan Jack and Brandon Barker are not in the squad for tonight's assignment, giving Gerrard decisions to make. We've got Scott Arfield and Greg Stewart down for a chance to impress, because Steven Davis needs a break after his international exploits last week as well. Rangers should have enough in attack and although Gerrard told the club's official website that Alfredo Morelos is fit to play, a spot on the bench makes most sense for the striker.
