And Chelsea have the third highest coefficient in the draw behind Sevilla and Arsenal.

The clubs are then split into 12 groups, with one team from each seeding tier drawn, but sides from the same nation can not be drawn together.

Rangers travel to Celtic Park on Sunday, live on Sky Sports, with a win and two draws from their opening three league games under their new manager.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported Diego Costa scored the only goal that powered Atletico Madrid into the final of this year's Europa League.
