Hammers set for Rangers clash

West Ham will play Rangers in a pre-season friendly, the club have confirmed.

Pre-season plans are continuing to take shape, with the Hammers preparing for another season in which they will play European football, after qualifying for the Europa Conference League.

The Scottish side, of course, reached the Europa League final last season and were ultimately beaten by RB Leipzig. Had the Irons won their semi-final, we could have seen an all-British showpiece final.

The fixture will take place at Ibrox, with David Moyes taking his side back to his home city of Glasgow.
