Liverpool, Tottenham and Celtic have discovered their Europa League group stage fate.

Liverpool were handed arguably the kindest group during today's draw in Monaco. Brendan Rodgers side will play Rubin Kazan, Bordeaux and Sion.

Tottenham were unfortunate to be placed in the same group as Monaco, arguably the best team that they could have played from Pot 3. They must also play Anderlecht and Azerbaijan side Qarabag.

However, Celtic were handed easily the toughest group of the three British teams involved in this season's competition. After dropping into the competition after losing their Champions League play-off, they will play Ajax, Fenerbahce and Molde.
