Lyon coach Alain Perrin has played down any suggestion that Rangers are underdogs in Group E of the Champions League.

European heavyweights Barcelona are perhaps the most star-studded side in the pool while Lyon and Stuttgart are respectively champions of France and Germany.

Perrin said: "This is the Champions League which is a competition with a special atmosphere where every team gives its best. There is very little difference between any of the teams and Glasgow (Rangers) deserve to be there."
