Leon Balogun, Joe Aribo and their Rangers teammates will take on Laliga giants Real Madrid in a pre-season friendly.

The friendly was confirmed by Madrid on their verified Twitter handle on Thursday.

It will take place on July 25 at Ibrox stadium, home ground of Rangers.

“First pre-season friendly CONFIRMED! Madrid vs Rangers, July 25th Ibrox Stadium (Glasgow),” Madrid wrote.
