Bristol City: Will host Rangers in a friendly

Ally McCoist's men, who romped to the Scottish Third Division title last season, will travel to Ashton Gate for a 12:30pm kick-off on Saturday July 13 and will be handed 4,000 tickets for the match.

Head coach Sean O'Driscoll told the club's official website: "It's a great pre-season fixture for us to play a club of Rangers' size and history and adds an extra dimension to our pre-season programme.

"Glasgow Rangers always attract a massive following wherever they play and a big crowd at Ashton Gate will add to our preparations for the coming season."

After welcoming Rangers the Robins will also welcome Reading to Ashton Gate as they prepare for life in the third tier.
