UEFA have hand-picked one of the most experienced referees in world football to take charge of Rangers’ do-or-die Europa League tie against Young Boys. 

German whistler Felix Brych will be the man in middle at Ibrox as the Light Blues attempt to book their place in the last-32 of the competition. 

The highlight of a glittering career for the 44-year-old came in 2017 when he took charge of the Champions League final in Cardiff, flashing a red card to Juventus’ Juan Cuadrado as Real Madrid defeated the Italian giants 4-1. 

He was also the referee for Sevilla’s Europa League final win over Benfica in the Europa League final of 2014, and has officiated at two World Cups, a European Championships and the Olympics.

Brych will be assisted by compatriots Mark Borsch and Stefan Lupp, with Martin Petersen acting as fourth official. 

Meanwhile, Halis Ozkahya has been assigned to Celtic’s visit to CFR Cluj. 

The Turkish referee will be a familiar face to the Hoops after taking charge of their 1-0 win at Rosenborg in the Europa League group phase last term, in which Scott Sinclair hit the only goal.
