Real Madrid got the second Carlo Ancelotti era off to a poor start with a 2-1 defeat by Rangers in Glasgow.

They took the lead through Rodrygo Goes after a fine run by Martin Odegaard, although it was against the run of play.

Lunin made some good saves in Madrid’s goal although Thibaut Courtois will regain his place when he returns from holiday.

Kent hit the bar for Rangers and they continued to threaten in the second half. Sakala levelled when sent through on goal, blasting home at the near post.

Madrid were reduced to 10 men when Nacho saw a second yellow for an ugly lunge at Kamara and then Rangers went ahead right away, with Itten finishing after the ball fell into his path.

Real Madrid net face AC Milan on August 8, unless any further friendlies are scheduled before then.
