Rangers confirmed a two-year partnership with Indian Super League champions Bengaluru FC as the Gers look to expand their global audience – and fans on Twitter are looking forward to seeing how it benefits the club.

The link-up will see a Gers Academy side head to India to train at Bengaluru’s state of the art facilities while a Rangers Legends team will travel out for a match.

There will also be screening events in Bengaluru for fans and, hopefully, Rangers can make a big impact in India with a potential audience of 1.3 billion.

Bengaluru have been incredibly successful since their formation six years ago with two I-League titles and an Indian Super League crown to their name.
