Newcastle kicked off their pre-season schedule with a 3-2 win at non-league neighbours Gateshead on Saturday lunchtime. A whole host of international players missed the game after representing their countries during the summer but that means they could come into contention for the game at Ibrox. That means the likes of Bruno Guimaraes, Sven Botman and Joelinton could all make their first appearances of pre-season and there could be a debut for summer signing Sandro Tonali.
