Rangers Colts clash attracts strong ticket sales from Wrexham fans

Rangers Colts will face National League side Wrexham in the quarter-finals of the Scottish Challenge Cup this weekend – and the Welsh side are set to shame some of their Scottish counterparts by bringing a healthy crowd north.

The Red Dragons have sold over 500 tickets for this weekend’s historic clash as Graeme Murty’s side play at Ibrox in senior competition for the first time.

The Colts beat Solihull Moors in the last round on penalties to add to triumphs against Ballymena United, Stranraer and Berwick Rangers so far in the competition.

There appears to be a real appetite among fans for the game with tickets on sale for the Sandy Jardine Front and pay at the gate likely in the Enclosures.

With the game taking place on an international weekend, and Rangers fans generally not caring much for the Scotland team nowadays, fans should pick up tickets early and avoid a rush on Saturday.

Bringing over 500 fans north deserves some credit and, hopefully, Wrexham fans can add a little to the overall occasion with a crowd some of the Scottish Premiership sides struggle to bring to Ibrox.

Away teams are given around 800 tickets in the corner between the Broomloan and Sandy Jardine stands and the likes of Hamilton, Ross County and others often struggle to bring enough fans to get close to filling half the section.

If 500-plus Wrexham fans can make the trip to Glasgow on relatively short notice to play a Rangers Colts team missing much of the ‘top-tier’ of Academy talent, like Josh McPake, Stephen Kelly and Cammy Palmer, then there’s really no excuse for Hamilton’s support showing up in a seven-seater taxi.
