Former Celtic winger Aiden McGeady helped consign Rangers to the bottom half of the Europa League draw on Wednesday night as his Spartak Moscow side bettered the Light Blues' Champions League record. Rangers, who drew 1-1 against Bursaspor in Turkey on Tuesday, needed several results to go their way to finish as one of the top four third-placed sides.

But Ajax and Spartak Moscow both overtook them in the rankings with away victories.

The seeding blow means Rangers could face the likes of CSKA Moscow and Zenit St Petersburg, their conquerors in the 2008 UEFA Cup final.
