The Magpies will also play La Liga outfit Rayo Vallecano and former European Cup winners Steaua Bucharest, in a game behind closed doors, as they prepare for the League One campaign.

Magpies chairman Ray Trew told the club's official website: "A tremendous amount of hard work has gone on to secure top class opposition for our pre-season schedule and I couldn't be happier with the schedule that has been arranged.

"You only have to look at the players in Galatasaray's squad to see how big a draw that game is for any football supporter and followed less than a week later by the visit of one of Spain's top teams in Rayo Vallecano is a real coup for this club.

"Whilst the game against Steaua Bucharest will be held behind closed doors, being able to secure a game against such prestigious opposition as part of their pre-season plans is testament to the high regard that Notts County Football Club is held in throughout Europe."

The Turkish side visit Meadow Lane on Tuesday July 16 in a 7.30pm kick-off, while the Vallecano match is on Tuesday July 23.

Their match against Romanian champions Steaua will take place at St George's Park in Burton on July 2.

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
