Rangers will face Dunfermline Athletic in their first match of the Scottish campaign on Friday at Ibrox Stadium.

Rangers were eliminated from the Champions League qualification campaign the previous time they played, losing 2-1 to Malmö of Sweden.

Rangers faced a difficult task of overturning a 2-1 lead in the second leg if they were to keep their hopes of making the Champions League group stages alive.

After Alfredo Morelos gave Malmö the lead, Antonio Colak scored a second-half brace in a four-minute span to give Malmö the victory and a 4-2 aggregate victory.
