RANGERS will host Marseille in a friendly match at Ibrox this Saturday, 22nd July at Ibrox – kick off 3pm.

Pedro Caixinha’s side will continue preparations for the new season with a stiff test against the team that finished 5th in France’s Ligue 1 last season.

The two teams famously met in the inaugural Champions League season of 1992/93 when two draws were played out at Ibrox and in the south of France, before the French side when on to lift the trophy against AC Milan.

Marseille will enter the third qualifying round for the Europa League later this month when they face Belgium’s Oostende.

The fixture presents the Light Blues with the chance to build on recent training work as they target the start of competitive league action at the beginning of August.

Ticket information for the game will be confirmed to supporters in due course.
