Bristol City are getting ready to welcome Scottish giants Glasgow Rangers to Ashton Gate for their first home friendly of the season tomorrow afternoon.
It'll be the first time Rangers have ever played in Bristol and large numbers of supporters of both sides are expected.
The match will also give Robins fans the chance to see some of the club's new signings in action for the first time, including Jay Emmanuel-Thomas and goalkeeper Frank Fielding.
On the club's official website, City manager Sean O'Driscoll has admitted that the glamour tie has captured the imagination of local supporters and is looking forward to taking on one of the icons of British football:

It shows the size of the club and we are delighted Rangers are coming to Ashton Gate.
Although the prestige of the game and the good weather should attract a huge numbers, police have appealed to supporters not to let anti-social behaviour ruin what should be an exciting encounter:

We expect the game will generate a big crowd and we would appeal to everyone planning to attend to have an enjoyable trouble-free time and give our visitors a warm welcome to our city.
