Tranmere Rovers manager Micky Mellon says the friendly against Rangers this weekend has come at a great time for his newly formed squad.
TRFC will come up against Steven Gerrard’s Scottish Premiership champions on Saturday at Prenton Park, with the game kicking off at noon.
Mellon, who is all too familiar to this weekend’s opposition, having faced them last season whilst in charge of Dundee United, also discussed how much he is enjoying life back as first team manager at Tranmere.
“It is great to be back. I am enjoying being back in the area and meeting all of the fans, it is lovely to see them all. I am also enjoying being back at the Club, this is a fantastic football club, everybody knows that, and everybody knows how I feel about Tranmere Rovers.
“The lads been working very hard towards our first pre-season friendly this weekend. It will be a really tough test on Saturday and a very tough game. It has come at a good time for us, and straight away we will be able to get the players out on the pitch.
“We are going to get the ultimate test of what you can get at this stage, and it is a great opportunity for us to get out there and see where we’re up against a very good team. We are all looking forward to the match.
“I am looking forward to being back in the environment at Prenton Park again, seeing all of the familiar faces in the building and the supporters in the stadium.”
