Rangers have announced a summer friendly against Hamburger SV.

The Ibrox clash will take place on Saturday, July 22 with a 3pm kick-off.

The match will celebrate the long-standing relationship and official partnership between both clubs and their supporters, as well as providing a test for Michael Beale’s new-look squad ahead of the 2023/24 campaign.

With natural links through the cities of Hamburg and Glasgow, the relationship dates back to 1970, with the first friendly between the sides played in that year.

The weekend of the match will see a range of fan-based activities on and around the matchday, as both clubs join to celebrate the friendship and bond between both sets of supporters.

Tickets for the friendly are priced at £15 for adults, £10 for concessions, £5 for children and only £1 for Junior MyGers Members.

Meanwhile, Michael Beale welcomed Kieran Dowell to Rangers after watching his side drop two points in a 2-2 draw against Hearts at Ibrox.

The Light Blues announced before the game that the 25-year-old midfielder would be joining the club from Norwich in the summer.

Beale was enthusiastic about Dowell, saying: “I’m delighted to get Kieran and he is a boy I have known for quite a while as when I was at Liverpool he was at Everton.

“He played for England Under-21 and then got a move to Norwich and played in the Premier League. They have had changes of coaches, so he comes in and knows three or four of the dressing room.

“We have missed a lefty since we lost Joe Aribo. He is similar to Tom Lawrence, Scott Arfield, Todd Cantwell that he can play in midfield or up a line.

“I think he will kick on here and someone who will be seen as a good signing over time and I am looking forward to working with him.”
