Some Glasgow Rangers fans have reacted to news of the Ibrox club being drawn against the winner of the Europa League preliminary round tie between FC Prishtina of Kosovo or Gibraltar side St Joseph's in the first round of the competition.

According to BBC Sport, Steven Gerrard's charges will play the first leg away from home on July 11, with the return leg taking place at Ibrox on July 18, and Bears fans will find out in the next fortnight which of the two sides will be confirmed as Gers' opponents.

 

Prishtina, who play at the 13,500-seater Fadil Vokrri Stadium, are the current runners-up in the Kosovan Superleague - ranked 52nd in UEFA's rankings - and this their third foray into the Europa League after Kosovo were granted UEFA recognition.

As for St Joseph's, who call the 2,300-capacity Victoria Stadium home, they finished third in last season's Gibraltarian Premier Division - ranked 47th in UEFA's rankings - behind Lincoln Red Imps and Europa, and like Prishtina, it's their third time in the Europa League.

Here is how some Rangers fans reacted on Twitter to the prospect of playing either of those two teams:
