Rangers in the Europa League last 16 draw details revealed including seeding, time and dates for tie
Rangers secured passage to the Europa League knockouts after a stunning night in Seville.
It's a city that holds mixed emotions but memories to last a life time for the Light Blues after they returned to face Real Betis in the final matchday of the group stage this season just a couple of years on from their heartbreaking penalty shootout loss in the final to Bundesliga outfit Frankfurt. Football is full of highs and lows and it was a huge high for Philippe Clement and his troops last time out in the competition as they dumped La Liga outfit 3-2 in their own backyard to win a thriller and land top spot in the section.
Finishing first comes with the added bonus of advancing directly to the last 16 stage and for Rangers they can get ready for those big European nights under the lights again as they get ready to discover their opponents for this stage. The competition resumes on Thursday night for the first legs of the play-off stage that involves the teams finishing second in their Europa League group and the clubs finishing third and dropping down from the Champions League. But Rangers are one of eight clubs to book a ticket to the following round alongside the likes of Liverpool, Brighton, West Ham and Bundesliga high-flyers Bayer Leverkusen.
