Latest Pre-Season Friendly Should Be No Surprise To Anybody

8 years ago

The club released the following extra pre-season friendly which should have come as no surprise;

Newcastle United have today confirmed a further friendly fixture as part of their pre-season programme.

United will travel to Ibrox to take on Rangers on Tuesday 6 August, kick off 7.45pm.

The potential of playing against Rangers had been much talked about, especially when the fact that Mike Ashley is one of Rangers’ main shareholders and has acquired control of the Scottish club’s merchandising.

Whatever the reasons, this friendly will be welcomed by many as there has been a decent rapport with Rangers fans in recent times and some very decent trips such as the Ally McCoist testimonial back in Kevin Keegan’s time.

It does make you wonder though if next thing you know we’ll be playing against a Sports Direct eleven thanks to some bonus incentive at the sports retailer.
