The 2023/24 will be a big one for Newcastle as they mark their long-awaited return to the Champions League. With that comes the challenge of keeping their squad healthy with extra commitments, and exciting fans with big performances against top sides. But before the campaign gets underway, there’s fitness and sharpness to work on and Newcastle will soon be off to the United States for a pre-season tour that’ll see them take on Aston Villa, Chelsea and Brighton.

First, though, there is also a friendly against Rangers at Ibrox, following their summer opener against Gateshead, which they won 3-2. The trip to Scotland will certainly provide a good early test for Eddie Howe’s men, taking on a team that finished second only to Celtic last season and one that’ll have a point to prove against Premier League opposition.

Neither side is likely to field a completely full-strength squad with many players still on holiday after summer international commitments around the globe. However, there should be enough to force an intriguing encounter between two passionately followed clubs.

Rangers vs Newcastle match stats

The Magpies scored 68 goals in the Premier League last season with just 33 conceded, the latter a joint-best in the division alongside champions Manchester City. Rangers, meanwhile, scored a massive 93 goals in 38 games, but that was still second to Celtic’s ridiculous 114. In the end, Rangers finished up seven points adrift of the title.

Eddie Howe’s men came back from 2-0 down at HT to win 3-2 in their first pre-season friendly of the season of Gateshead, thanks to goals from Elliott Anderson, Allan Saint-Maximin and 19-year-old Jay Turner-Cooke, while Rangers ended their tour of Germany with a 2-0 win over Hallescher FC. We are expecting goals once again here.
