Is Rangers Vs Tottenham Hotspur on TV? Stream details, kick-off time and team news for pre-season friendly
and live on Freeview channel 276
Giovanni van Bronckorst’s side welcome the Londoners to Glasgow as both teams lock horns for the right to win the Walter Tull Memorial Cup.
The Light Blues recorded an impressive 3-1 victory over fellow English top-flight side West Ham United in midweek, with several summer signings catching the eye on their home debuts.
Rabbi Matondo and Tom Lawrence stepped off the bench at half-time to light up the capacity crowd, while Croatian striker Antonio Colak worked tirelessly and looked sharp ahead of the new season starting on July 30.
Rangers will be determined to claim another significant scalp against Antonio Conte’s star-studded line-up but the backline will have to be at their best to keep the likes of Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min quiet.
Spurs, who finished 4th in the Premier League last season, were held to a 1-1 draw by Sevilla during their pre-season tour in South Korea earlier this month after beating a K-League XI 6-3.
Conte will be looking for an improved performance from his team in Glasgow and the Italian is expecting an “amazing atmosphere” inside Ibrox.
He said: “When you play away against Rangers or against Celtic it’s always very difficult because you play in an amazing atmosphere.
“But it will be a good test for us because, for sure, we’re talking about a really good team. They lost the final of the Europa League last season and in the last friendly game they have beaten West Ham.
“We are working hard, but at the same time, we want to play a good game and to try to be fit for the start of the season. We have to face every game in the right ay - to try to get a win in every game.”
Both sides faced each other in the UEFA European Cup back in 1962, with Spurs running out 8-4 aggregate winners over two legs. The last meeting came in 1989 when Mo Johnston made his debut at Ibrox.
