Rangers confirm two more pre-season friendlies as West Ham head for Ibrox

Rangers have confirmed two more friendlies for Gio van Bronckhorst’s side next month to complete the Light Blues pre-season schedule.

The Gers will travel to Blackpool on July 16 before facing West Ham at Ibrox three days later, as we first reported on Sunday.

The Gers have faced Blackpool a number of times over the years, with the last meeting between the sides coming in 2011 while Rangers and West Ham have only faced off once before; a 1979 Caledonian Cup semi-final which saw Rangers run out 3-2 winners.

Rangers already have friendlies against Sunderland and Tottenham scheduled as Gio van Bronckhorst prepares his side for the Scottish Premiership opener on July 30.

The Gers head to Portugal for a training camp at the start of July, where they will face Sunderland, before returning home for their final preparations.

Rangers v West Ham could have been last season’s Europa League final had the Hammers not lost out to Eintracht Frankfurt in the semi-finals.

Tickets for the West Ham match are priced at £21 for adults, £16 for concessions and just £5 for juniors while all four pre-season matches will be available live on RangersTV with a July pre-season match pass for just £25.
