Manchester United landed a favourable tie against Austrian club LASK in the draw for the Europa League last 16, which has been made at UEFA HQ in Nyon, Switzerland. Wolves, meanwhile, meet Olympiacos, who dumped Arsenal out of the competition.
Elsewhere, Inter, winners of this trophy three times in the 1990s, must now face Getafe after the Spanish club claimed the last 32 scalp of Ajax.
Steven Gerrard’s Rangers, the only Scottish club left in the competition following Celtic’s elimination, have been given a tough tie against 1988 winners Bayer Leverkusen, while five-time record winners Sevilla are to play Roma.
In each tie, the team drawn first will play the first leg at home.
