Rangers travel south to Blackpool on Saturday afternoon for a British domestic-friendly fixture at Bloomfield Road.

The Gers' start to the new campaign took an unlikely turn last weekend when their friendly fixture with Sunderland was abandoned at half-time following a power cut in the Algarve. Rangers has been trailing 1:0 in a rather listless first-half showing.

Of course, it is very much early days for both sides with Championship outfit Blackpool entering this fixture on the back of a pair of friendly fixtures including a 4:0 loss at Leeds last weekend.

A tough one to call given both side's relative lack of preparation, the Gers usually take a substantial away crowd for English-friendly fixtures and we expect a boisterous occasion in Blackpool in what should prove a decent-enough contest with the visitors looking to make up for lost time following the abandonment of their first friendly with Sunderland in Portugal last weekend.

Ultimately, Giovanni Van Bronckhort´s visitors should have too much quality for the home side, even if this is just a friendly contest and the visitors can be backed with some confidence at 1.66 odds to return north with a first victory of the new season.

As with any friendly fixture, small stakes are always advised with both sides just beginning their pre-season preparations but Rangers have some important fixtures coming up in the CL qualifiers and they will be keen to kick-start their campaign with a morale-boasting victory at the Blackpool seaside.

Head coach Michael Appleton will likely rotate his small squad following the 4:0 loss at Leeds last weekend. 

However, the home side have yet to make any summer signings as they look to maintain their status in the Championship.

Rangers, looking to bounce back from a heart-breaking Europa Leauge final defeat last season have been busy in the transfer market this week, adding a pair of Welsh internationalists in the shape of Rabbi Matondo and Tom Lawrence and both will be hopeful of making their debuts in this friendly contest.

Elsewhere, fellow new boy Antonio Colak should lead the attack while Scottish internationalist John Souttar could make his debut in the Gers defence.
