Newcastle have announced a pre-season friendly against Rangers at Ibrox on August 6 (7.45pm kick-off).

Rangers manager Ally McCoist, gearing up for life in the Scottish Second Division this season, said: “Newcastle have a strong squad, packed with international players, and they will provide a great test for our players.

“I am sure both sets of supporters will be keen to fill Ibrox and take in such a high-profile game before the serious league business gets underway.”

Rangers are a week away from the start of their season, with a Challenge Cup tie away to Albion Rovers next Sunday and a League Cup opener at Forfar on August 3 before starting their league campaign on August 10.
