Rangers Announce America & Canada Tour
Rangers have today confirmed that they will be heading on a 12 day tour of America and Canada in our pre season preparations for 2014-15.
We will also be visiting Northern Scotland during our preparations.
Pre season plans were considered a success last summer, and we will again be heading to Brora on July 1st for a six day trip which will include a friendly against Buckie Thistle at Victoria Park on Thursday July 3rd, with a 7.30pm kick off, and a game against Brora Rangers at Dudgeon Park on Sunday July 6th, with a 3pm kick off.
The players will then head Stateside to play two friendlies in each country.
We face Ventura County Fusion at Ventura College Sportsplex in California on July 15th (7pm KO) and then Sacramento Republic FC at Bonney Field, Sacramento on July 19th (7.30pm KO).
We then head to Canada where we will face Victoria Highlanders at the Centennial Stadium, British Columbia on July 12st (6pm KO) and a further fixture on July 23rd is yet to be confirmed.
Speaking to the Official Site as the tour was announced manager Ally McCoist explained.
'I'm delighted our pre season plans are now in place and we can prepare for next season's important campaign in the Championship. We enjoyed a successful trip to Northern Scotland last year and we look forward to taking the squad there once again. We then head across the Atlantic and I have no doubt our overseas supporters will enjoy seeing the team in action once again.'
