Less than 24 hours after scraping through to the next round of the Europa League, Tottenham will be among the names in the hat for the play-off draw.

The Premier League giants, who secured a comeback win over Lokomotic Plovdiv on Thursday night, will be joined by the Scottish Premiership's Celtic, Rangers, Motherwell and Aberdeen.

However, it's not guaranteed that all five teams will make it to the play-off round, as the draw is taking place before the tournament's third qualifying round.

With the season getting underway later than usual, draws are being held earlier to make up for lost time.

As always, the draw is being conducted at UEFA's headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland. There's no Champions League draw on this occasion, so it's only the Europa League play-off draw being held.

Nomads boss 'had to turn blind eye' to unwell players after Covid-19 tests

Connah’s Quay Nomads boss Andy Morrison said he ‘had to turn a blind eye’ after three players turned up ‘unwell’ for their Europa League clash against Dinamo Tbilisi.

The second-round qualifier went ahead despite four of the Welsh Premier League side’s players having tested positive for coronavirus.

The four, plus a fifth player who hasn’t tested positive, are currently self-isolating.

But three more turned up for Thursday night’s game feeling poorly.

Former Man City defender Morrison said: “Three lads have turned up tonight and they’re not well.

“And it’s like ‘lads I don’t want to hear it. I can’t hear it tonight that you’re ill, please like you know. Let’s just get through it’.

“I’ve been told that before the game and we’ve had to turn a blind eye to it and then you would have never noticed that anyone there tonight wasn’t feeling great.”

Nomads lost 1-0 against their Georgian opponents.

Tottenham's late fightback

Harry Kane equalised from the spot with 10 minutes remaining before Tanguy Ndombele scored a late winner.

Mourinho 'feared' Spurs exit

Of course, Tottenham only sneaked into today’s draws thanks to two late goals against Lokomotiv Plovdiv.

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho admitted he “feared” his side’s European campaign was over after the Bulgarians took the lead on 71 minutes.

But Harry Kane and Tanguy Ndombele saved the day for Spurs against nine-man Plovdiv.

Here’s what Mourinho had to say:

When they scored, it was a moment for them to dream and a moment for us to fear going out of the competition.

To go from that feeling when you think you could lose to then the last feeling to win is good.”

Tottenham could face Rangers

Tottenham could face Rangers in the Europa League Play-off Round.

Jose Mourinho and Steven Gerrard’s sides are both in Group 4 of the draw for the Main Path (It’s complicated).

Spurs are seeded, while Rangers are unseeded, meaning they could be drawn against each other.

Of course, they have to win their respective third-round ties first, with Tottenham facing Shkëndija of Macedonia and Rangers up against Dutch side Willem II.
