Rangers and Tottenham hold talks over Ibrox pre-season clash

Rangers have held talks with English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur over a potential pre-season friendly at Ibrox, according to Football London.

The Light Blues haven’t even finished this campaign but they are already ploughing ahead with next season’s preparations and this potential blockbuster fixture could headline the summer.

Football London say nothing more than that talks have been held between the two cubs with the English side hoping to play games in South Korea too before their Premier League season starts.

With the Scottish Premiership a lower reputation league than the Premier League, Ibrox would be the host stadium rather than the modern masterpiece that is the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Should this go ahead, Rangers fans can expect to see the likes of Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane (if he is still there) to be gracing the Glasgow turf and being met by a firm Gers defence you’d think too.

Fantastic occasion

It may only be pre-season but Rangers very rarely get the chance to take on English sides unless they are drawn together in European competition, but the likelihood of that is fairly slim most of the time.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s men could face Spurs’ fierce London rivals West Ham in the Europa League final if they both dispatch their respective German counterparts.

The Irons take on Eintracht Frankfurt – arguably the lesser of two evils – while RB Leipzig stand in our way.

It is a bit of a shock that the big English sides don’t make the trip north of the border more often to take us or even the old enemy Celtic on in pre-season.

Especially with COVID-19 having caused havoc in the past couple of years, it must surely look like a very good test without the need to hop on a plane and go halfway around the world.

But in a universe where money is king, they’d rather go to the States or Asia but at least Spurs are hoping to keep some of their preparations closer to home.

In other Rangers news, we think this new for 2021/22 Scottish league structure will come back to benefit the Gers in the long run.
