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.

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