After their relegation to the Third Division, the Ibrox club cut adult season tickets by one third and juveniles by 50 per cent. Once again, prices for next season, which include all 18 Irn-Bru Second Division home games, start from £258 for adults, £65 for children and £179 for concessions. Rangers interim chief executive Craig Mather said: “The board is delighted to confirm season ticket prices for next season will be frozen.

“More than 38,000 fans bought season tickets in 2012-13 and, in recognition of their tremendous support and loyalty, we have taken the decision to keep prices for the forthcoming campaign as low as possible.

“We cannot thank Rangers fans enough. They have followed the team in huge numbers at all games this season and I am sure they will back Ally McCoist and his players again in 2013-14.”

The club said that season ticket renewal and purchase details will be communicated to supporters in advance through club communications and the media.

Meanwhile, Celtic have announced they will play Bundesliga side Borussia Mönchengladbach in a pre-season friendly at Parkhead on Saturday 27 July.

The SPL champions revealed that the match against the former German champions and Uefa Cup winners will be part of the Celtic season ticket package, with kick-off time and match ticket information to be announced.

Celtic will also take in a pre-season training camp as well as playing matches in Germany ahead of the Champions League qualifying campaign. The club added that the first home European qualifier will also be included for supporters as part of the season ticket. It was recently announced that solid financial results had allowed the club to take £100 off the cost of a standard adult season book in a one-off gesture for next season.
