The draw for the first qualifying round of the Europa League takes place later today and Rangers wait for news on which side we will have to overcome first to keep a European adventure in 2018/19 alive.
With fans already knowing that there is the potential for us to again be drawn against previous first qualifying round opponents, Luxembourg outfit Progres Niederkorn, that has quickly become the go-to fixture for supporters.
Progres took an aggregate victory over us in the previous clash last summer. The game at Ibrox saw us take a 1-0 win with Kenny Miller finding the net, but the away leg at the Stade Josy Barthel saw the hosts hit back with two goals in the second half to send us crashing out of the competition and in many ways it simply set up the season to come under Pedro Caixinha.
Reacting in advance of the draw later today (Wednesday) fans made their thoughts clear on social media.
I want progres just for revenge
