Rangers B to play Belfast outfit in pre-season friendly

Rangers fans are gearing up for a trip to Belfast as the B team prepare to face off against Glentoran in pre-season.

The Ibrox youngsters will travel across the water for a friendly clash in the Northern Irish capital in a match that is being billed as Charlie Lindsay’s homecoming.

Rangers have an extensive contingent of Northern Irish supporters whilst we suspect there will be plenty of interest from Scottish fans making the trip over.

The match will take place at Glentoran’s the Oval on the 10th of July and will see Rangers B team be put through their paces by the Northern Ireland Football League team.

Rangers B to play Glentoran in pre-season friendly

The Glens are hoping to be prepared for the new Northern Ireland domestic season after finishing third in the NIFL Premiership last season.

Rangers-linked Belfast club Linfield lifted the title on the final day, pipping Cliftonville to their 56th league title.

Rangers B too will be looking to prepare for their own season as the club’s youngsters get ready for another stint in the Lowland League.

There had been some conjecture regarding the B teams being chucked out of the competition after Hearts had put a side in for this season.

But after a renewed vote the Ibrox club, their Old Firm rivals Celtic and the Jambos will have a second string side in the competition next season.

Rangers have spoken honestly about the immense benefits of this system on their young players and it’s clear the youngsters have enjoyed the challenge too.

Rangers finished 2nd in the Lowland League last season, with Bonnyrigg Rose runaway winners in the end, finishing 14 points clear of the Ibrox club’s youth side.

Meanwhile, a new deal for a Rangers international is “likely a priority” heading into next season.
