Rangers will need to dust themselves off after falling at the first Champions League hurdle in 2021/22 as they prepare for another Europa League campaign.
The Gers qualified for the peak of European club football for the first time since 2012 but history repeated itself as Swedish unit Malmo defeated Rangers in the qualifying round, just as they did nine years ago.
Steven Gerrard now faces the test of regrouping his squad to go again in the Europa League. They reached the Round of 16 last season against the odds and will feel as though they blew their chance of progressing further against Slavia Prague.
Rangers’ Europa League campaign this season begins with a qualifying clash against Armenian Premier League champions Alashkert. See here for our full Premier League TV schedule.

Our prediction: Rangers v Alashkert
Gerrard won’t demand a perfect display or elegant performance, he will simply want the job done early doors.
Don’t expect Rangers to dominate from the first minute to the last, but their relative quality should shine through over the course of 90 minutes to secure a solid if unspectacular victory.
