Arsenal sign Amazon deal as ex-Rangers star Mikel Arteta prepares Ibrox return

Former Rangers midfielder Mikel Arteta is set for an Ibrox return this summer as Arsenal come to town for a special 150th-anniversary pre-season friendly.

But the Spanish maestro will also be spending the season in front of the cameras as the popular Amazon Prime All or Nothing series announces filming at the Emirates this season.

Video cameras will follow the Premier League giant throughout the season as they look to claw themselves back into a domestic title challenge and compete in the Europa League.

The release is scheduled for 2022 and will go out to a total of 240 countries worldwide, following on from successful All or Nothing series relating to Man City and Tottenham Hotspur.

This means there’s an outside chance Rangers could be involved in any filming as they form part of Arleta’s pre-season preparations.

Rangers’ clash with Arsenal is set to take place on Saturday the 17th of July and will be the third match of a six-game pre-season schedule.

The game will also form part of the club’s 150th title celebrations, Rangers and Arsenal having strong connections which go back to Bill Struth’s time in charge of Rangers.

Struth was friends with former Arsenal boss Herbert Chapman, with Rangers purchasing shares in the London side during a time of financial difficulty which were sold during the reign of Craig Whyte.

The Ibrox club have already played Partick Thistle and Tranmere Rovers in pre-season with games against the Gunners, Blackpool, Brighton and Spanish giants Real Madrid to come.

Here’s how Rangers fans reacted to the news that 13 times European Cup/Champions League winners Real are coming to town.
