With little to separate the sides on the night, both teams will be desperate to secure a £40million ticket to the group stages, with the losers dropping down into the Europa League.

Ibrahim Sangare capitalised on a loose ball inside the penalty area to open the scoring in Glasgow but the visitors’ lead proved shortlived as Antonio Colak equalised three minutes later to finish off a brilliant move.

A horrendous goalkeeping error from Walter Benitez, who fumbled Tom Lawrence’s free-kick, gifted the Light Blues a leader before Armando Obispo’s towering header clinched a hard-earned draw.

PSV will now aim to make home advantage count after they were granted a week off from facing newly-promoted FC Volendam in the Eredivisie by the Dutch FA to allow for extra preparation time for this tie.

Ruud Van Nistelrooy’s side are currently on a 12-game unbeaten streak across all competition, but they have failed to win any of their previous three home encounters against Rangers.

The Gers followed up their midweek draw by recording the same result against Hibernian in the Scottish Premiership at the weekend, despite finishing the game with nine men after John Lundstram and Alfredo Morelos were shown straight red cards.

Last season’s Europa League finalists now shift their focus back on qualifying for the group phase of the competition for the first time in 12 years.

However, Rangers have struggled on their travels in Europe in recent years, winning just one of their last 11 away fixtures - a 4-2 Europa League play-off win over Borussia Dortmund in February.

The club also boast a mixed record against Dutch opposition, having won seven times, drawn six and lost seven when facing teams from the Eredivisie.

The former Derby County attacker was forced off after 62 minutes at Easter Road and his potential absence could see Malik Tillman recalled to the starting line-up after being an unused substitute at the weekend.

Central midfielder Glen Kamara has travelled with the squad four days after being left out of the matchday squad in Edinburgh amid increased transfer speculation.

Kemar Roofe, Ianis Hagi and Filip Helander remain long-term absentees, John Souttar misses out, while versatile defender Ben Davies has also been left out after his absence in the Gers last two outings.

Van Bronckhorst confirmed: “Roofe, Souttar and Davies didn’t travel with injury. Kamara travelled with the squad. We are strong and ready to give it everything.”

PSV boss Ruud van Nistelrooy is likely to name a similar starting XI from the first leg at Ibrox, with the likes of Cody Gakpo, Joey Veerman and Luke de Jong retaining their place.

Noni Madueke (ankle), Carlos Vinicius (hamstring), Mauro Junior (groin), Olivier Boscagli (knee) and Yorbe Vertessen (illness) are all rated doubtful.
