West Ham ace Tomas Soucek hoping to draw Rangers in Europa League

WEST HAM star Tomas Soucek admits he would love to face Rangers in the last-16 of the Europa League.

The Czech Republic midfielder would relish to chance to take part in a Battle of Britain with the Scottish champions, should they reach the next knockout round of the tournament.

The Hammers are already in Friday’s draw, having finished top of their group prior to Christmas.

David Moyes’ men are awaiting to see who their next opponents will be once the last-32 ties are concluded.

Rangers hope to be a part of Friday’s draw, and they are in pole position to qualify as they lead Borussia Dortmund 4-2 going into the return leg.

And Soucek would love to draw Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s men.

He told the West Ham website : “I’ve thought about a few teams I would like to play against, and if I could say one, it would be Rangers, because I want to play against them as a big rival.

“It could be a really good game for teams from England against Scotland, big rivals. It would be a really exciting game for the fans and also for us.

“This team could be good, but everyone we could draw at this stage of the competition will be difficult to face because they have had to win many games to go through.

“Let’s see – I look forward to it! I’m looking forward to the draw, because I’ve been watching the games in the round before us.

“Teams still have their second legs on Thursday, so I’ll watch them, and also I will watch the draw if it’s possible.”
