RangersTV have announced that they will be screening Rangers’ Europa League playoff tie with Galatasaray – and dropped a big hint about who could be on the channel’s panel.
Taking to Twitter to make the announcement, the club’s media channel has confirmed the broadcast whilst revealing that full details are to follow.
Thursday’s @EuropaLeague play-off will be LIVE on RangersTV. Full details to follow.

On top of that, the broadcaster has challenged fans to come up with who they would want on their perfect panel of RTV guests for this match against the Turkish giants.
Hinting that one of the names which would come straight to mind “may be correct”, Rangers fans only have one man in mind – Graeme Souness.
Legendary Rangers manager Graeme Souness transformed the Gers in the late 80s and would go on to later spend a season in charge of Galatasaray in the mid-90s.
Earlier in the campaign Rangers claimed that the fiery ex-Rangers boss would make an appearance on the club’s media channel this season.
What better match than one against a club which the iconic Rangers midfielder also managed?
Rangers fans are taking the RangersTV hint that it could well be the man who famously sported that legendary moustache.

Graeme Souness took charge of Galatasaray in the 1995/96 season, famously planting a huge Galatasaray flag in the middle of the pitch belonging to arch-rivals Fenerbahce.
It earned him the nickname Ulubatli Souness, in reference to Ulubatli Hasan, who was killed as he planted the Ottoman flag at the end of the siege of Constantinople.
