This fixture will mark just our second visit to Ibrox, the iconic 50,000-seater stadium that has been home to Rangers since 1899.

West Ham’s only previous trip to the Govan district of Glasgow was in August 1979, when coach Ernie Gregory took charge of the Hammers in the four-team Tennent Caledonian Cup.

With manager John Lyall away working on transfer business, David Cross and Billy Jennings scored in a 3-2 defeat by the host club on 3 August. Kenny Watson, Gordon Smith (two) scored Rangers’ goals. Jennings was on target again in the third/fourth-place play-off against Brighton & Hove Albion on 5 August, but the Seagulls ran out 3-1 winners.

West Ham also visited Glasgow in pre-season as recently as July 2021, when Moyes’ side ran out 6-2 winners against Celtic at Parkhead, having previously drawn 2-2 with fellow Scottish Premiership club Dundee at Dens Park earlier the same month.

West Ham have now scheduled six pre-season matches ahead of the 2022/23 campaign, kicking-off with a meeting with Swiss Super League side Servette in Geneva on Friday 8 July.

EFL clubs Ipswich Town, Reading and Luton Town and National League outfit Boreham Wood will also play host to the Hammers as Moyes and his squad get ready for the competitive action to start with the visit of Premier League champions Manchester City to London Stadium on Sunday 7 August.
