Berwick Rangers are gearing up for what is arguably the biggest league game in the club's history.

The Shieldfield Park side were originally due to face Stranraer in the Irn Bru Scottish Third division this weekend.

But the much publicised troubles at Glasgow Rangers and their demotion to the fourth tier of Scottish football, has seen that fixture list drastically change.

The newly-formed New Rangers are in town on Sunday. A full house is guaranteed, with 3000 of the 4,500 inside cheering on the visitors.

Now all of a sudden we are faced with a huge travelling support, a massive demand for tickets because we could have filled Shielfield two or three times over. So lots and lots of interest from the World's media not just local media, and the picture changes completely so it's been a huge amount of work as you say over a relatively short period of time to get things ship shape and ready.

– John Bell, Berwick Rangers Director
