FBK Kaunas secured a date with Rangers in the second round of Champions League qualifying ties after easing past Santa Coloma from Andorra.

The Lithuanian outfit followed last week's 4-1 away win with a 3-1 victory on home soil.

Linas Pilibaitis, who had a loan spell at Hearts, netted twice in both matches while Tuesday's win was overseen by new Portuguese coach Jose Couceiro.

Kaunas visit Ibrox on Wednesday 30 July, with the second leg on 5 August.

Brazilian forward Rafael Rodrigues Ledesma bagged a double along with Pilibaitis in Andorra, while Irmantas Zelmikas was the other goalscorer in Lithuania.

Rangers, who will have to negotiate a third round qualifier as well, are aiming to reach the group stages of the Champions League for the eighth time.
