Rangers have been handed a nightmare Women's Champions League draw against Arsenal.

Jo Potter's side were drawn to face the Women's Super League side in round one of the European competition.

The draw presents a significant challenge to Rangers - who were unseeded - as they go up against Arsenal, who won the competition in 2006/07 and have only failed to make the quarter-finals once in the last 16 entries.

In this afternoon's draw, Rangers also discovered the other two clubs in their mini-tournament cracked with Atletico Madrid and Rosenborg going head to head in the other semi-final.

To progress into the next round, Rangers would have to win their group, which would mean beating Arsenal before triumphing over the winners of the other match.
