Rangers v Newcastle United: The Magpies travel north of the border to take part in Allan McGregor’s testimonial match this evening.

Newcastle United’s second game of pre-season sees them face Michael Beale’s Rangers at Ibrox, just three days after defeating Gateshead in their first outing of the summer. Eddie Howe’s side travel to Glasgow for the game with Rangers before jetting-off to the USA to take part in the Premier League Summer Series to play games against Aston Villa, Chelsea and Brighton and Hove Albion.

The clash against Rangers will be the first time in a decade that the Magpies have featured at Ibrox, with their last appearance coming in a 1-1 draw during their preparations ahead of the 2013/14 season. Shola Ameobi, who currently works as the club’s loan manager, netted a last-gasp equaliser for Alan Pardew’s side on that occasion.

What’s the latest team and injury news?

Newcastle are expected to welcome back the majority of their international representatives at Ibrox. A clutch of players, including new signing Sandro Tonali, watched Saturday’s win at the Gateshead International Stadium from the stands having only returned to the club following their pre-season break on Friday afternoon.

Joe Willock and Nick Pope will likely miss the clash at Ibrox whilst Jamaal Lascelles and Jacob Murphy, who missed the Gateshead win through injury, will also be assessed ahead of the game. Likely to line-up against the Magpies for the first time will be their former defender James Tavernier, nine years after he left St James’ Park to join Wigan Athletic.

Advice for travelling supporters

The Newcastle United Supporters Trust (NUST) have released information for the 8,000 Magpies supporters heading to the game at Ibrox tonight. Car parking around the stadium is very limited and fans are advised to check if any restrictions are in place when making arrangements.
