It will be the first time that Rangers’ 51,000-seater stadium has hosted a Scotland fixture in 15 years.

Temuri Ketsbaia's Georgia side will be in action at Ibrox as Hampden is out of commission after being converted into an athletics venue for next month's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

It will be the 18th time the ground has hosted a full Scotland international, and the first since Craig Brown's team beat Bosnia-Herzegovina 1-0 in October 1999.

The SFA will also announce the venue for November's qualifier against Republic of Ireland shortly, with Celtic Park expected to be selected.

Gordon Strachan’s side will kick off their bid to reach the finals in France with a trip to Germany's Westfalenstadion in Dortmund on September 7.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
