Rangers fans have been left fuming by an update provided by Glasgow Subway on the day of a high-profile pre-season fixture against Real Madrid.

The Gers are taking on Los Blancos at Ibrox at 6pm on Sunday evening, in front of the biggest crowd to attend a match at Ibrox since March 2020.

Initially, permission was granted for 12,750 fans to attend but Rangers subsequently released further tickets on a first come first served basis to season ticket holders following negotiations with the authorities.

It’s a big night for the supporters who are finally getting a chance to return to Ibrox, but for those who aren’t driving to the match, getting to and from the stadium could be tricky.

Strikes are affecting ScotRail services and earlier in the week, Glasgow Subway confirmed that it would be closing at the usual Sunday time of 6pm rather than putting on extra trains for supporters after the end of the match.

In theory, at least if the Subway was available until 6pm, all fans who normally use the service would be able to get to the game with no issues.

However, it was confirmed on Sunday morning that there would be no Inner Circle service at any point across the day due to ‘issues on track’.

Unsurprisingly, the news didn’t go down well with Bears, many of whom were already disappointed by the service’s out-of-touch opening hours.

Here’s a selection of reactions from Twitter:


The match will be shown live on RangersTV and a superb lineup has been confirmed for the broadcast.
