RANGERS travel to America this morning for their summer training camp in Charleston, South Carolina and match against USL side Charleston Battery.

The Light Blues squad, led by manager Mark Warburton and assistant manager David Weir left Auchenhowie this morning at 7am to head to Edinburgh Airport for their departure across the pond.

The Gers will fly from Edinburgh to Newark Liberty International Airport for a brief stopover, before the second part of the journey from Newark to Charleston in the early evening.

A squad of twenty three players has made the trip for the training camp, based at the MUSC Health Stadium, the home of Charleston Battery.

The United Soccer League side, who play in the Eastern Conference, will host the Light Blues at their 5,100 capacity home on Wednesday, 6 July.

Coached by ex-player Mike Anhaeuser, Battery will provide good opposition for Rangers who will remain at their training base in Charleston until July 7th.
