Rangers FC managed to qualify for the 2019-20 Europa League group stages and they will start their campaign this week at home.
The Gers have been drafted in Group G alongside the likes of Porto, Feyenoord and Young Boys and in their first match, Gerrard welcomes, Jaap Stam’s Feyenoord.
The Dutch side have made a pretty average start to the new season picking up only 9 points from a possible 18 and are currently sitting seventh in the Eredivisie.
So naturally, with the likes of Porto and Young Boys in the same group, Gerrard will be looking to pick up maximum points against the Eredivisie side if he is at all serious about moving onto the next round.
The Teddy Bears had a really solid qualifier picking up seven wins and one draw which means they did not lose a single match. In fact, the only loss they have suffered this season has come at the hands of Celtic in the Old Firm Derby.
So naturally, Rangers will be pumped to kick off their Europa League campaign with a home win.
