Assistant boss Gary McAllister said “We come here with the fact that we’ll be training in a nice bit of heat which will be a nice change from the Scottish winter,”.  

“From a fitness point of view, I think the sports analysis guys will be taking note of their fitness levels – I’m not going to say it will be a mini pre-season, but there will be a wee bit of physical work and some physical testing to see where the players are and looking at that, their ability to get through to the end of the season without any problems." 

 Rangers are training at the top class Nad Al Sheba Sports Complex in Dubai. They have a friendly match against Uzbekistani Super League champions Lokomotiv Tashkent, on Saturday 11th January at the Sevens Stadium (3pm UAE local time).
