Rangers’ push to reach the Champions League group stages for the first time since 2010/11 begins with a trip to face Union Saint-Gilloise on August 2.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side begin their European journey at the Third Round Qualifying stage with a first leg in Belgium before the return fixture at Ibrox a week later.
