Rangers could be off to the Wirral later this summer for a friendly against Tranmere Rovers according to rumours on social media – and Gers fans are excited at the prospect of a trip south to see the Light Blues in action.

According to rumours on Twitter, Steven Gerrard’s champions could be heading to Prenton Park on July 10 as they gear up for the defence of their Scottish Premiership title.

The Gers will host Arsenal at Ibrox on July 17 to mark Rangers’ 150th anniversary so the possibility of a fixture against Tranmere a week earlier would fit in with the pattern of Rangers’ pre-season games under Gerrard.

Rangers have tended to play against a lower-tier English side before a bigger fixture as part of their preparations so the Light Blues could be heading to the Wirral for the first time since 1998.

Last time Rangers played at Prenton Park it served as a temporary home for Irish side Shelbourne in Dick Advocaat’s first competitive game in charge of the Gers.

After falling behind to to shock 3-0 deficit, the Gers roared back to an incredible 5-3 win as 6,000 bluenoses made the trip for the UEFA Cup qualifier.

Caretaker Ian Dawes saw his side lose 2-1 in their playoff first leg clash against Morecambe yesterday after an end-of-season slump saw them win just two of their final 11 games.

Fans are hoping there is some truth to the rumour of a friendly at Prenton Park against the League Two side and were hopeful they could get an away day this summer to celebrate 55 a little bit more.
