Cork City hope to be in a position over the next day or so to confirm that any home leg of a Europa League qualifier against Rangers would go ahead at Turners Cross after the competition’s second round draw threw up the possibility of the two sides meeting in a few weeks’ time.
Rangers have not met Irish opponents in a Uefa competition since 1998 when they beat Shelbourne 7-3 on aggregate but with the Dublin club’s home leg having been moved to Tranmere’s Prenton Park on that occasion, it is 1984 since they played in Ireland.
