Rangers defeated Real Madrid at Ibrox in Sunday's preseason friendly.

Real went into the game without new signing David Alaba, with the Austrian left at home to continue his fitness training.

Despite taking a very early lead through Rodrygo, Real Madrid were outplayed and second half goals from Fashion Sakala and Cedric Itten saw the home side take the victory.

While this was just Real Madrid's third match of the summer, after behind-closed-doors workouts against Fuenlabrada and Rayo Vallecano, it'll be a worry for the Italian that Rangers dominated his side from start to finish.

For Rangers, this was the perfect way to prepare for the start of their competitive season next week.

For Real Madrid and coach Carlo Ancelotti, they'll be glad they have three weeks before competitive action resumes. There's a lot to work on.
