Rangers: Jordan Campbell shares team news update ahead of Champions League qualifier -Rangers News

Rangers summer signings Ridvan Yilmaz and Rabbi Matondo trained with the team on Sunday ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League qualifier, according to The Athletic’s Jordan Campbell.

The Lowdown: Rangers’ summer signings

The Light Blues have been busy at work during the transfer window this summer, with numerous arrivals and departures to and from Ibrox.

Last month, the Gers announced the signing of 21-year-old Rabbi Matondo, who made the switch to Glasgow from Schalke 04 in a deal worth £1.8m. The Wales international joined the German outfit from Manchester City in 2019 for a staggering £11m.

Giovanni van Bronckhost’s side also recently announced the arrival of Ridvan Yilmaz at Ibrox, who joined the club in a deal worth £3.4m plus add-ons. The Turkey international made his debut for Besiktas in 2019 as an 18-year-old and has since gone on to make 62 appearances in all competitions for the Super Lig giants.

The Latest: Campbell’s team news

With Matondo having missed out on Rangers’ opening game of the Premiership season against Livingston due to injury, Campbell has shared an update on the youngster’s fitness.

Also speaking about recent arrival Yilmaz, the reliable journalist took to Twitter on Monday morning to state: “Ridvan Yilmaz and Rabbi Matondo trained with the team yesterday ahead of the UCL qualifier tomorrow.

“Another session in store today but Van Bronckhorst says a couple of players are still doubts.”

Rangers fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Big boost

The inclusion of Matondo and Yilmaz in the Gers’ squad for their Champions League qualifier against Union Saint-Gilloise on Tuesday will come as a big boost to Van Brockhorst’s side.

With it being Rangers’ first continental clash since the Europa League final against Eintracht Frankfurt in May, the Light Blues will be desperate to progress in the Champions League this season.

However, with Saint-Gilloise narrowly missing out on the Belgian title last year, this will be no easy fixture for Van Bronckhorst’s men.

Therefore, the possible inclusion of the two new signings will come as a boost to Rangers, providing them with alternative options in the latter stages of the match in Belgium if needed.
