Clarets are going back to Scotland to play Rangers
Burnley’s pre-season will once again feature a game against Rangers in Glasgow at their Ibrox Stadium, this time a game with a bit of added interest following the newly promoted club’s signing of Joey Barton.
The game will be played on Saturday 30th July, kicking off at 3 p.m. and adds to the Clarets’ pre-season schedule.
Last season, in what was our first ever visit to the home of Rangers, the Clarets won 1-0 with a Scott Arfield goal in front of an attendance of over 22,000. On that occasion, the two clubs were set for seasons in their respective second tiers, Burnley in the Championship and Rangers in the Scottish Championship. Both of us won our leagues with Rangers, like us, losing only five league games all season to return to the Scottish Premiership after an absence of four years.
The teams on our visit last year were;
Rangers: Wes Foderingham, James Tavernier (Fraser Aird 65), Rob Kiernan (Darren McGregor 65), Danny Wilson (Marius Zaliukas 78), Lee Wallace, Barrie McKay (Dean Shiels 65), Nicky Law, Andy Halliday (Jordan Thompson 65), Jason Holt (Tom Walsh 65), Martyn Waghorn (Nicky Clark 65), David Templeton (Kenny Miller 65). Subs not used: Liam Kelly, Ryan Hardie.
Burnley: Matt Gilks, Matt Lowton (Cameron Dummigan 65), Michael Duff (Michael Keane 65), Ben Mee (Tom Anderson 85), Danny Lafferty (Stephen Ward 65), Michael Kightly (Brad Jackson 78), Fredrik Ulvestad (Matt Taylor 65), David Jones (Steven Hewitt 85), George Boyd (Jason Gilchrist 85), Lukas Jutkiewicz. Subs not used: Alex Cisak, Luke O’Neill, Alex Whitmore.Share this page :
