Rangers have announced that their upcoming friendly match with Uzbekistani side Lokomotiv Tashkent will be streamed live on Rangers TV.
The match – which is set to kick-off at 11 am UK time on Saturday the 11th of January – will be available live for £9.99 on the streaming service.
Steven Gerrard’s side are set to test themselves against the second-place Uzbek side as they continue their preparations in Dubai for the second half of the season.
Rangers are currently in the United Arab Emirates in a warm-weather intensive training camp as they prepare for a big second half of the season.
The Ibrox side are currently primed for a title challenge and a real shot at the club’s first major trophy since 2011.
The friendly with Tashkent will offer the players the opportunity to get minutes into the legs in what should be a relatively competitive match.
But given the match is only a friendly, supporters are feeling a little aggrieved at the decision to charge fans for the game.
Even if many are reluctantly willing to pay the money:
£10 ye having a laugh. Should be free for people subbed to rangers tv.

Honestly Rangers you are a joke at times! A tenner to watch a pointless game against some team we have never heard of!??
The money will be in your account soon.
