Manchester United and Rangers to face off at Scottish Gas Murrayfield

Manchester United and Rangers to face off at Scottish Gas Murrayfield

Manchester United and Rangers will face-off for the first time in over a decade, as the sides head to Scottish Gas Murrayfield this July.

Following last year’s hugely successful spectacle at the home of Scottish Rugby, which saw Manchester United beat French Ligue 1 giants Olympique Lyonnais in front of nearly 50,000, the ‘Red Devils’ will return to Edinburgh on Saturday 20 July 2024 to challenge Scottish league title record holders Rangers.

The fixture also marks Manchester United’s first match against Rangers since a UEFA Champions League group stage game in 2010. In this last meeting of the clubs, United beat Rangers 1-0 thanks to a late Wayne Rooney strike, in a game which saw former Scotland international Lee McCulloch start for ‘The Gers’.

McCulloch, who made over 200 appearances for Rangers, was present at the launch of the fixture alongside former Manchester United and England defender Wes Brown, who was an unused substitute the last time the two sides met.

Former Scotland and Rangers midfielder McCulloch said: “I remember it like it was yesterday, playing United in 2010. While the result didn’t go the way we wanted, it was a brilliant occasion, and a powerful representation of the strength of both sides as powerhouses in their respective nations.

“Rangers are, once again, vying for top spot in the Scottish Premiership and Manchester United remain one of the leading sides in global football. Scottish Gas Murrayfield, the home of Scottish Rugby, is one of the most famous sporting venues in the world, so it seems only fitting to have such a thrilling fixture hosted there.”

Wes Brown, who played over 200 times for United, added: “Two of the biggest clubs in British football coming together in the Scottish capital is one of those can’t-miss occasions for any football fan. Last year, when United faced Olympique Lyonnais, the fans’ support was fantastic, and I am sure, alongside the Rangers’ fans, the atmosphere at this year’s game will be incredible.”

The fixture is set to kick-off the pre-season period for both sides, with United heading to the USA shortly after.

Scottish Rugby’s Director of Stadium Development & Operations, Mark Laidlaw, added: We are excited to be able to welcome Manchester United back again for a second consecutive year and also Rangers to Scottish Gas Murrayfield. Being the largest stadium in Scotland, it is great to bring more world-class sporting and music events to Edinburgh again this summer. We look forward to hosting both teams for what will be a fantastic occasion.”

Fixture launched by Rangers legend Lee McCulloch and former United star Wes Brown.

Manchester United Football Director, John Murtough, said: “United v Rangers is one of those must-see fixtures that any fan of football would want to watch. Bringing together two of the UK’s most highly decorated and respected teams, the match will not only provide entertaining and exciting football for our fans, but also a strong and competitive opponent to kick start the squad’s preparation for the season ahead.”
