RANGERS will face Willem II in the Europa League third qualifying round if they can overcome Lincoln Red Imps on Thursday night.

Steven Gerrard's side kick off their European campaign in familiar territory as they look to see off the outfit that shocked Celtic in the Champions League four years ago.

The draw for the next stage of the competition was made last month as the Gers were handed a possible tie against Willem II or old foes Proges Niederkorn.

And it will be the Dutch side that they will face - if they qualify in Gibraltar - after a 5-0 victory on Wednesday evening ensured a safe passage into the next round.

Evangelos Pavlidis netted either side of an effort from Goerkem Saglam to put the visitors three goals ahead at the break in Luxembourg.

And Che Nunnely and Mike Ndayishimiye scored in the second half to clinch a comfortable win that potentially sets up a tricky tie for Rangers next week.

Gerrard's side are now in line to travel to the Koning Willem II Stadion for a one-leg tie as they look to progress to the play-off round and move a step closer to a third consecutive group stage appearance.
