Manchester City's Turn To Invade Glasgow

Manchester City's Turn To Invade Glasgow


Who remembers when Glasgow Rangers made the UEFA Cup final a couple of seasons ago? Who remembers the carnage and who remembers running battles in Manchester's City centre.

Last seasons Scottish Premier League winners, Rangers have kindly offered Manchester City a pre-season friendly at Ibrox on either Tuesday August 4 or Wednesday August 5, depending on the outcome of the UEFA Champions League third-round qualifying draw at which Glasgow rivals Celtic will discover their opponents and venue.

The game will undoubtedly be a tense affair especially as Walter Smith's side will be keen to show just how good Rangers actually are. Yeah, right!

No doubt City fans will be eager to display their colours with pride, walk proud with their heads held high, but most of all, show the Blue side of Glasgow just how to behave.

Rangers boss Walter Smith told the media...

'Manchester City have a squad packed with quality, and this match will give us another good test ahead of the new SPL season.'

'I know our fans will enjoy watching players of the calibre of Robinho, Gareth Barry and Roque Santa Cruz and it should be an entertaining game.'


Message To Rangers FC From Vital Man City

Watch, learn, warm to the occasion and then enjoy the rest of the season playing the likes of Falkirk, Kilmarnock and Dundee United. Wow, Ibrox should be filled to the rafters. I bet fans canna wait.

I'm gonna go and burn down Glasgow. The only problem is I don't think anybody would notice.

Too true Goatboy - Glasgow is indeed a slum, even worse than Liverpool!

This is a good pre-season game for both sides. There will be a little extra bite in the tackles.

Glasgow a slum? Great city to visit and far from being a slum. Obviously have`nt been there for a while then guys. Yes the Gers fans were way out of line when in Manchester but do you really think that the approx 150/200 thousand fans where true fans that follow the club every week..i think not. It`s a friendly guys and i dont think that some of the comments to date are particularly helpfull to our fans that will head north in the hope of a few beers.. a look round the city and an enjoyable,safe and friendly trip.

As a Blue living in and near to Glasgow for the last 15 years, I am delighted to see City coming to Rangers. Far from being a slum Glasga is a great city. Yes it has it's dodgy areas, Possil, Arden, a lot of the east end but a lot of it is fantastic. I would recommend City fans stick to the West End which has superb bars and eating, the same goes for the city centre. The banter with the locals will be fun and City should score a hatful because the Gers are poor, very poor. If we dont stuff em I will be really disappointed. Do yourself a favour fellow blues and Come Ta Glasga, you'll have a fab time and I'll see you at Ibrox.
