Chris Sutton has told BT Sport’s UEFA Europa League highlights show that it would be “lovely” to see Rangers draw Manchester United and then knock Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side out of the competition – after both reached the last 16.
Rangers progressed into the last 16 for the second successive season thanks to a brilliant 5-2 win over Royal Antwerp on Thursday night at Ibrox. A high-scoring tie, the 5-2 home win came after beating Antwerp 4-3 in Belgium.
A 9-5 aggregate scoreline, for Rangers. It sees them progress to the stage where they were knocked out by Bayer Leverkusen last season – joining Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham in the next round. Leicester have been knocked out.
Celtic icon Sutton spoke about Rangers, who will find out their next opponents in the competition at midday. The Hoops legend is keen to see Liverpool hero Gerrard and Rangers come up against Man United, and says it would be “lovely” to see them win.
