Harry Kane’s hat-trick fired Tottenham into the Europa League group stages with a 7-2 win over Maccabi Haifa in north London.
Giovani Lo Celso bagged two goals in three minutes as Jose Mourinho’s Spurs overwhelmed their Israeli visitors at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The win puts Spurs into the hat for Friday’s group stage draw, which takes place at Uefa’s Nyon headquarters in Switzerland.
Full back James Tavernier fired his seventh goal in as many games as Rangers overcame Galatasaray 2-1 at Ibrox.
Steven Gerrard’s men reached the last 16 of Europe’s second-tier tournament last term, and were in no mood not to reach the competition-proper this time around.

Marcao’s late header put the jitters into the hosts, but Gerrard’s men held on.
