Huddersfield Town could host Rangers in a July friendly.
The club are working on their pre-season schedule, and it’s believed plans are in the pipeline for a meeting with Scotland’s fallen giants, who would be sure to bring a bumper following to the John Smith’s Stadium.
The 54-times Scottish champions (the last of those crowns was in 2011) are working their way back up the leagues after demotion to the fourth tier amid the financial crisis of 2012.
The original Ibrox club, founded in 1873, went into liquidation when an agreement could not be reached with creditors.
Their business and assets were bought by a new company, to whom Scottish Football Association membership was transferred in time to enable a relaunch in the Scottish Football League Third Division, which was won last season.
Ally McCoist’s side, who face Dundee United in the Scottish Cup semi-finals at their own Ibrox ground on Saturday, have already clinched the renamed League I title and promotion to the Championship (they are unbeaten in the league) and will next season aim to seal a return to the top flight.
They suffered a shock defeat by Raith Rovers in the final of the Scottish Challenge Cup, for sides outside the Premiership, last Sunday.
Their average league attendance so far this season is 43,107.
Rangers last summer played friendlies at Bristol City, where they had 2,500 fans in a 7,874 crowd, and Sheffield Wednesday, where they had more than 5,000 supporters in a 16,248 turn-out.
Messages have already been posted on Rangers forums welcoming the prospect of a trip to Huddersfield.
