Rangers manager Steven Gerrard
Rangers are on course to progressing to the knockout round of the Europa League this season, while their bitter Old Firm rivals Celtic have already booked their place in the round of 32.
If Gerrard’s side do go through from the ground stage, then they cannot face Celtic in the round of 32, but the two Scottish Premiership giants could theoretically lock horns with each other in the round of 16 - should the Gers and the Bhoys advance that far in the European competition.
Lennon told The Scottish Sun about the prospect: “That would be carnage. We’d have to play a one-off game somewhere, behind closed doors!”
Both Celtic and Rangers are doing well in Europe, and some would even suggest that Lennon’s side and Gerrard’s team are exceeding expectations in Europe.
Interestingly, the Hoops and the Gers are also going strong in the Scottish Premiership this season, with the latter providing a stiff competition to the former in the title race.
