Europa League: Arsenal drawn against Sporting while Chelsea meet PAOK

The former Liverpool and England captain, who worked under Rodgers at Anfield, is unbeaten in 12 games since he took over at Ibrox in the summer and has taken the Light Blues into the group stages of the Europa League, where they have been joined by the Parkhead men.

Dembele sat out Thursday night's Europa League tie against FK Suduva, and after the match Rodgers claimed Celtic needed a replacement before they could sell the striker. The club have had a significant offer.

It was reported on Friday that Rangers could be facing a late transfer window bid for striker Alfredo Morelos, with Dynamo Kiev and Bordeaux said to be interested in a £7m move for the player.

That would make him one of the best paid players in Scotland and should ensure all transfer talk about the player is shelved for this season at least.

"I think it is fantastic for these supporters and we will go into these games full of confidence and belief that we can go and get the right results to progress."
I'll speak more to him tomorrow.

"It's hard, a difficult situation for him in terms of the possibility he has".

"We need to find an agreement with Celtic for Dembele", Aulas told RMC Sport.

Last season, the 29-year old had to wear No.77 in UEFA's secondary club competition last season after arriving from Manchester United, due to Alexis Sanchez wearing No.7 in the group stage.

'I became aware of Celtic's interest about two weeks ago.

"The first goal for me is to show to the manager that I'm ready". It was key to keep the players that we had.

"But for us to get someone of that experience in - of that quality - is great as it will help a lot of our younger players". Rangers could face 2008 Uefa Cup final opponents Zenit St Petersburg, Marseille or Astana of Kazakhstan while, in Pot 3, Qarabag, RB Leipzig and BATE Borisov are among the potential opponents.
