The south coast club follow Arsenal to Ibrox and precede the final warm-up match of summer 2021 for Steven Gerrard’s team – against Real Madrid.
English Premier League opposition is not to be sniffed at and the Seagulls are expected to put up another stern test for the Scottish champions following last weekend’s 2-2 draw with the Gunners.
Some 8,500 will be in attendance but for those heading along Edmiston Drive, or watching on at home, here’s what you need to know...
Who: Rangers v Brighton and Hove Albion
What: Pre-season friendly
Where: Ibrox Stadium, Glasgow
When: 5.30pm, Saturday July 24, 2021
How to watch
The match will be shown live on Rangers TV costing £7.99 with regular host Emma Dodds joined by Neil McCann and Alex Rae. Clive Tyldesley will be on commentary duties alongside Gordon Smith. The match is also included in the club’s £29.95 pre-season match pass covering all of the preparatory matches for Steven Gerrard’s side.
Fans will be permitted with a limited attendance of 8,500 for Saturday’s match.
More and more Rangers players are returning to the fold after their summer exploits. So far the likes of Borna Barisic, Filip Helander and Alfredo Morelos have not been seen after competing for their countries at Euro 2020 and the Copa America. Neither has new signing Fashion Sakala nor long-term injury victims Ryan Jack and Niko Katic – both of whom the Ibrox club are easing back into contention.
New signing John Lundstram has been in action twice though and starred against Arsenal in last weekend’s 2-2 draw.
