RANGERS return to European action tonight after coming agonisingly close to a famous Europa League success.
The Gers were beaten by Eintracht Frankfurt on penalties in Seville after a brilliant run to the final.
And that defeat means they must now negotiate qualifying to enjoy Champions League football this season, as Celtic won the Scottish Premiership.
First up, they face an unpredictable tie with Belgian runners-up Union Saint-Gilloise.
The Brussels-based side finished in second position in the Jupiler Pro League, just a year after returning to the top flight for the first time in 49 years.
Should the Gers win, they will face an extremely tough tie in the play-off round against either PSV Eindhoven or Monaco.
