Scottish referee Kevin Clancy will go Dutch this evening after being handed his third European assignment in the space of just three weeks.
The 31-year-old whistler has been chosen to oversee AZ Almaar’s Europa League league clash against Istanbul Basaksehir as his profile on the continent continues to rise.
Clancy took charge of Lech Poznan’s 1-0 win over FK Sarajevo in the Champions League second qualifying round last week, with former Dundee United man Barry Douglas scoring the only goal of the game.
And he was the man in the middle for Mladost Podgorica’s Europa League qualifier against Neftchi Baku on July 9.
His assistant referees are Alastair Mather and Stuart Macmillan, while Andrew Dallas will act as fourth official at the AFAS Stadion.
