Europa League: Hearts delight at Liverpool tie
Saturday 11 August 2012
The Hearts manager John McGlynn was thrilled to be drawn against Liverpool in the Europa League play-offs.
The first leg is set to be played on either 22 or 23 August at Tynecastle.
McGlynn said: "What a prospect for all the young players to be playing Liverpool. Stevie Gerrard will be getting as much as my budget probably, so we're up against it, but what an opportunity. It's 11 against 11, there will be a massive crowd and atmosphere at Tynecastle. I would imagine the bookmakers would favour Liverpool but every dog has its day."
Newcastle will face Atromitos of Greece while Motherwell have a tough assignment against Spanish top-flight side Levante.
