Motherwell will participate in the 2012/13 Champions League qualifiers after securing a third place finish in the Scottish Premier League.
The Steelmen’s spot in the European competition was secured after Rangers, who will miss out despite finishing second, thumped fourth placed Dundee United 5-0 on Wednesday night.
Rangers will not represent Scotland in the Champions League after failing to gain a Scottish FA recommendation for a UEFA Club Licence, with the club currently in administration.
Motherwell will enter at the third qualifying round stage on the Non-Champions Path. Stuart McCall’s team will not be seeded.
The Steelmen will be in the draw with the second placed clubs from Romania, Belgium, Denmark, Turkey, Holland, Ukraine and Russia, the third placed team in Portugal and the winners of the Greek Super League play-off.
Should they progress to the play-off round, they will again be unseeded.
They will be in the draw with England’s third or fourth placed club, depending on Chelsea’s success in the Champions League final, third in France and Italy, Spain’s fourth placed club, German side Borussia Monchengladbach and the other four winners of the third qualifying round stage.
