What have Rangers and Spurs said about the fixture?
An official announcement by the Ibrox club detailed the history between the two clubs, saying: “The two clubs have met in many friendly matches over the years, with the last coming in July 2004 when Nacho Novo and Dado Prso were on target for Gers at Ibrox in a 2-0 victory.
“Competitively, the pair have only ever met in the one tie, with that coming away back in the 1962/63 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup. Then, the Light Blues went down 3-2 at Ibrox and 5-2 at White Hart Lane.”
Meanwhile, the English side also mentioned the 2004 encounter while going into detail about the history of Rangers.
It read: “The Gers have been crowned Scottish champions a record 55 times in their illustrious history, with the most recent success coming last season when they added a first league title in 10 years.
“Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side are currently fighting it out alongside Old Firm rivals Celtic for a second successive title, having also reached the semi-finals of this season’s UEFA Europa League.
“It will be our first meeting since we visited Ibrox for a pre-season friendly in July, 2004, with our only competitive clash coming when we triumphed 8-4 on aggregate on our way to winning the 1963 European Cup Winners’ Cup.
“Notable former players to have plied their trade for both clubs include Paul Gascoigne, Graham Roberts and, most recently, Jermain Defoe, who was part of last season’s league title success.”
