There is no good news for Newco Rangers at the moment. Following rejection of their application to join the SPL, organisers of their pre-season trip to Germany have cancelled the trip. A statement on www.rangersfc.co.uk read: "The Rangers Football Club has been informed by the organisers of our pre-season trip to Germany that they can no longer offer us a place on the tour. The team was due to play three games in Germany between 18-25 July, but the trip will now not take place at their request." Southampton and Le Havre had previously withdrawn invitations to play pre-season fixtures.
