Danish club FC Midtjylland will train at the Rangers Training Centre on Wednesday, according to the Mail on Sunday via the Scottish Sun.

FCM will be in Glasgow for the first leg of their Champions League second qualifying round tie against Celtic on Tuesday night.

It’s asserted that they won’t use the facilities at Auchenhowie prior to that match but that they will have a session there on Wednesday morning before flying back to Denmark.

The reported agreement appears to have been made possible by a good relationship between the Gers and FCM that began when the two clubs faced off in the Europa League third qualifying round back in August 2019.


The Light Blues triumphed 7-3 on aggregate but the tie was played in good spirits and officials from the respective clubs have allegedly kept in touch since.

Rangers were due to be in Blackpool on Wednesday for their fourth pre-season friendly but the match has been cancelled due to a ‘Covid related issue’ in the Seasiders’ squad.

It’s not yet known whether a replacement fixture will be sought or if the squad will simply train instead, but it looks as though they’ll only have access to Auchenhowie in the afternoon due to this agreement with Midtjylland.
