The draw for the UEFA Europa League has been made with Liverpool, West Ham and Brighton learning their opponents for the tournament’s group stage.
Liverpool will be looking to win the competition for a fourth time after missing out on Champions League qualification last season and will begin their campaign in a group alongside LASK of Austria, Belgium’s Union St-Gilloise, and Toulouse.
West Ham’s success in last season’s Europa Conference League earned David Moyes’ side a place in the group stage and the Hammers will take on Olympiacos, Freiburg and TSC Bačka Topola.
Elsewhere, Brighton have been given a tricky test in the club’s first-ever continental campaign. Roberto De Zerbi’s side must navigate a group featuring Ajax, Marseille and AEK Athens.
Rangers are in Group C, alongside Real Betis, Sparta Prague and Aris Limassol.
