Rangers manager Walter Smith insists the financial aspect of European football must not overburden them as they seek to reach the Champions League group stages this season.

The Govan club will face either Santa Coloma from Andorra or Lithuanian champions FBK Kaunas in the second qualifying round with the first game at Ibrox on July 29/30 and the return a week later.

"I don´t think that as managers and players we can get too burdened by the financial aspects," Smith said. "We know what they are but we just want to be involved in the Champions League proper."
