RANGERS will open season 2022/23 with a trip to Livingston at 12noon on Saturday, 30 July.

 

That was the site of Gio van Bronckhorst’s first league match back in November, and the Light Blues will return to Almondvale to take on David Martindale’s outfit to kick-off the new season in just over six weeks’ time.

 

The first home league match is then slated for Saturday 6 August, with newly promoted Kilmarnock the visitors to Ibrox. It’s then a home match with St Johnstone on the weekend of 13 August, away to Hibernian on the weekend of 20 August before the month rounds off at home to Ross County on the weekend of 27 August.

 

The first Old Firm match of the new season will take place at Parkhead on the weekend of 3 September.

 

With the World Cup taking place in Qatar this winter, the Scottish Premiership will take a break, with Gers traveling to St Mirren on 12 November, and then not returning to action until 17 December when they play host to Hibernian.

 

That kicks-off the typically busy festive period, with games pencilled in away to Ross County on Christmas Eve, a home clash with Motherwell on Wednesday 28 December and then the first Ibrox Old Firm on January 2.

 

The third Old Firm match is at Parkhead on the weekend of 8 April, and the final match before the split sees Gers travel to Pittodrie to face Aberdeen on April 22.

 

The post-split dates are then as follows:

 

Saturday 6 May

Saturday 13 May

Saturday 20 May

Wednesday 24 May

Saturday 27 May

 

Away from league action, and Rangers will discover their UEFA Champions League, third qualifying round opponents on Mon 18 July. That tie will be played across 2/3 August and 6 August.

 

Success will see Rangers in the play-off round on 16/7 and 23/24 August. Defeat in either of those rounds will automatically send Gers to the UEFA Europa League group stage, with victory, of course, meaning group stage Champions League football.

The first group stage match for either competition takes place the week beginning September 5.

 

For the domestic cup competitions, Rangers will begin the defence of their Scottish Cup on the weekend of January 23, with the final of that tournament taking place on June 3.

 

Gers will enter the Premier Sports Cup at the Lat 16 stage on either Tuesday 30 or Wednesday 31 December. The Premier Sports Cup final takes place on Sunday, 26 February.

 

All fixtures are subject to change.

Just wondering if our league will be having a break come November for the world cup

I've got the fear.

 

They're difficult fixtures. 

 

Away to them, Pittodrie, Tynecastle, Easter Rd, Livingston in the first round of fixtures. Then, of course, that gets repeated pre-split.

 

Does that help us post-split?

 

VAR gets introduced when we return from the World Cup break (17th Dec).

I do like a chuckle at fixture complaints.  

 

If we can't have confidence playing the likes of Killie and Aberdeen (home or away), then there's something wrong.

Quite.

 

We had better get confident in these fixtures because I think that Celtic already are.
