2022/2023 Pre Season Thread


Recommended Posts

Fantastic that Rovers are coming back to Glasgow, saves me the usual 6 hour round trip!

We won at Celtic Park the last time we played there, and should have also won the time before that. This will be about the 5th or 6th time I’ve seen Rovers play Celtic, my sons are season ticket holders there so it should be an interesting day, and I hope whoever the manager is plays to win 😉✊🏻

I checked out prices of hotels in Glasgow. The prices have shot up since the Rangers pre season friendly.

Gerry Cinnamon is playing a gig at Hampden the night we play Celtic so that could be something to do with the high prices.

I think I will just drive up on the day, or maybe the train.

Think there are engineering works on the main line. Or at least a risk of them that weekend. Probably won't know for sure until a couple of weeks before.

Thanks for the info, I'll check again nearer the time.

The Open (Golf) is on in St Andrews that weekend too. Obviously it's a bit away from Glasgow but given there will be thousands travelling for that, some might be choosing the big cities to stay in.

Feels a long time since we had a trip abroad for pre-season (Scotland doesn't count!) - I was hoping even for one to Ireland.

The centre of Glasgow is roughly 2 hours away from St Andrews, probably even longer than that during the Open with the heavy traffic on the A91. Dundee, Edinburgh, Perth and Stirling are more likely venues for hotels for those going to the home of Golf, I would say.

Nearest I could get for the practice day (going with my dad) was a Holiday Inn in Dundee 18miles away 🤣

I must admit mate I thought Dundee was closer to St Andrews than that. The Tay Bridge must be longer than I thought lol

Depends how far you consider Dundee's 'outskirts' to stretch 🤣

Stanley have announced they are playing four home friendlies against as yet unnamed Championship opponents. Hopefully one of them is us for what was in the recent past a regular pre-season fixture.
