Magpies confirm pre-season friendly against Rangers

Newcastle United will travel to Ibrox Stadium for a pre-season friendly fixture with Rangers this summer as part of preparations for the 2023/24 Premier League campaign.

Eddie Howe's squad will make the journey to Glasgow on Tuesday, 18th July (kick-off 7:45pm BST) to take part in a testimonial match in honour of Light Blues goalkeeper Allan McGregor, who - if selected this weekend - could make his 500th appearance for the Scottish Premiership side.

The fixture is the Magpies' first confirmed outing of pre-season, with further matches to be confirmed in the coming months.

Eddie Howe said: "A trip to Rangers will present a strong challenge at what will be an important time in our summer preparations.

"Any time Rangers play at Ibrox, you expect competitive football, and we hope to contribute to a great occasion in honour of Allan McGregor's achievements with the club."

Rangers manager Michael Beale commented: "This will be a very proud night for Allan and his family and an excellent, and important test for us. We will have an interesting pre-season, with this being the first game announced.

"There will be some top friendlies in there to help us get ready for the new season."
