SPORT: Rangers announce pre-season friendly against Tottenham Hotspur

By Bill Heaney

RANGERS will play  in a glamour Ibrox friendly against Tottenham on July 23 this summer.

Manager Antonio Conte’s men – featuring the likes of Harry Kane and Son-Heung Min – will visit Ibrox on Saturday, July 23.

The match will be played at Ibrox

The match will be played at Ibrox Stadium a week before the Scottish season starts – with the Gers facing Arsenal and Real Madrid in a star-studded match up last season.

The Ibrox men cancelled plans to compete in a money-spinning friendly competition involving Celtic out in Sydney in December.

It will be instructive to see if Celtic loan star Cameron Carter-Vickers is part of the Spurs squad – with the Hoops keen to secure his signature on a permanent basis.

The last friendly meeting came in July 2004 when Nacho Novo and Dado Prso were on target for Gers at Ibrox in a 2-0 victory.

They have only ever met once competitively, in the 1962/63 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup as the Light Blues went down 3-2 at Ibrox and 5-2 at White Hart Lane.
