Sparta Prague vs Rangers live stream: How to watch Europa League fixture online and on TV tonight

Rangers will look to bounce back from their opening defeat to Lyon when they visit Sparta Prague in the Europa League tonight.

Steven Gerrard’s side lost their first Europa League group stage match at Ibrox in over three years as Lyon won 2-0 in Group A two weeks ago.

The Scottish champions are top of the Premiership table after seven matches but have dropped points against Dundee United and Motherwell so far.

Rangers were eliminated from the Europa League in the knockout stages by Czech opposition last season as Slavia Prague secured a 3-1 aggregate win. Sparta Prague drew their opening match of Group A after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Brondby.
