For the second year in a row, Rangers and PSV are battling it out for a place in the coveted group stage in the play-off round.

USA international Tillman played in the game last year and set up Antonio Colak’s goal that sent Rangers to the promised land.

This time he will be on the PRESENT page.

Although Rangers had an option to sign Tillman from Bayern Munich this summer for around £5million, a permanent move never materialised.

The Bundelisga champions canceled this agreement because they believed they could get a better offer for the 20-year-old.

Instead he joined PSV on loan for another season and this time the option to buy is around £12million.

Rangers and PSV had until 11pm on Thursday night to present their squads for the upcoming showdown in both games.

After that deadline, however, uncertainty reigned as Uefa’s website did not list any changes to the squads.

That meant there seemed to be NO room for Tillman in the current form.

However, clubs have until the eve of the first leg to complete the squad and PSV did just that.

That means the midfield star could now make his PSV debut AGAINST the club that won him PFA Young Player of the Year last season.

Tillman isn’t the only new face in the squad.

PSV have had a busy week in the transfer market, spending around £10m to beat AC Milan by signing Jerdy Schouten from Bologna.

He’s also included, along with Sergino Dest, who just signed a season’s loan deal with Barcelona-based PSV this morning.

Dest, 22, was handed a huge £342m release clause when he joined the Nou Camp in 2020, but PSV will have a chance to sign him permanently for less than £10m next summer.
