After the cancellation of the visit by Mr Green’s team to Le Havre, Jean Alain Boumsong’s alma mater, and the withdrawal of the invitation from Southampton, the Ibrox team was still set for a trip round Germany to get what players it had tuned up for whatever League it might be playing in.
However even that has now fallen through.
“THE Rangers Football Club has been informed by the organisers of our pre-season trip to Germany that they can no longer offer us a place on the tour.
The team was due to play three games in Germany between 18-25 July, but the trip will now not take place at their request.”
I assume the “their” in the second paragraph refers to the organisers, rather than to Sevco pulling out.
The SPL has updated its list of pre-season friendlies. They no longer list Rangers, although if that is because there is no longer a member of that name, or because there are no pre-season games left, is not made clear.
Quite how Mr McCoist gets his players tuned up for the coming season, wherever his team will play, is now unclear.
