Rangers fans have been left fuming by an update provided by the Glasgow Subway service ahead of a high-profile fixture against Real Madrid.

The Gers are taking on Los Blancos at Ibrox at 6pm on Sunday in their final pre-season friendly.

12,750 fans will be in attendance, over 4000 more than will be permitted at another friendly against Brighton the previous day.

Some fans are disappointed with the allocation but it still represents major progress, as it will be, by some distance, the largest crowd to attend a match at Ibrox since a Europa League Last 16 first-leg clash against Bayer Leverkusen in March 2020.

Supporters who are accustomed to using the Subway to get to and from the stadium on matchdays are going to have to find an alternative mode of transport for their return journeys, though.

That’s because it’s been announced that the service will close at the usual time of 6pm, with no additional trains being put on for fans.

Clearly, this would be a bigger issue if the ground was set to be filled to capacity.

Still, though, many fans will now have to make potentially costly alternative plans to get home and some have expressed their anger and disbelief at the idea of a transport service closing so early during the weekend.

Here’s a selection of reactions from Twitter:

Additionally, Rangers fans have questioned the logic behind fan allocations in Glasgow following a Celtic announcement.
