'Announce away friendlies' - Rangers fans react as Gers confirm Gerrard Ibrox debut

Rangers have confirmed when Steven Gerrard’s first game at Ibrox will take place – and Gers fans were hoping the Light Blues would announce an away game down south.

The Ibrox giants will welcome Bury to Glasgow on July 6th ahead of the Europa League kicking off six days later – before hosting Wigan on July 29th.

Steven Gerrard’s side announced the fixtures on their official Twitter account on Friday afternoon.

Gers fans were hoping they would have a trip to England over the summer – with one wanting to take “a week off work and get mad wae it.”

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

With the Europa League campaign starting so early in the summer, then an early elimination sould see the Gers arrange further games.

Gers fans have enjoyed trips to the likes of Derby and Sheffield Wednesday in recent seasons – and still hold the attendance record at Derby’s Pride Park stadium.

The Light Blues return to training on June 15th before flying out to Spain two days later for a training camp in Andalusia.

Gerrard’s first competitive game will be on July 12th when the Gers play in the first qualifying round of the Europa League – with their opponents still to be confirmed.
