Harry Kane continued his good pre-season form with two goals in six minutes as Tottenham came from behind to beat Rangers 2-1 at Ibrox.

In more encouraging signs ahead of the new season, Kane looked sharp in front of goal as he made it five goals in three friendlies with two good finishes from inside the area.

New Spurs signings Yves Bissouma, Ivan Perisic, Clement Lenglet, Djed Spence and Fraser Forster all made their debuts as substitutes in the second half.

Tottenham fell behind in the first half when Rabbi Matondo got past Ryan Sessegnon down the right and crossed for Antonio Colak to put Rangers ahead from close range.

Bissouma was introduced at half-time and Spurs levelled early in the second half when Kane shifted the ball onto his right foot and fired into the top corner with a brilliant finish.

Six minutes later the England captain combined with Heung-min Son to score his second.

Conte on Kane and Son: “We saw Kane, Son, they are like top five, top six strikers in the world.

“Not only in attack, but in their transition mode. We coped well but you could still see the quality and when they were subbed off you could see the appreciation of the Rangers fans for that quality.”

17:51 , Giuseppe Muro

More Conte reaction: “If I have to find a situation that today was to improve it was because we created a lot of chances, especially in the first half and we didn’t score, but I understand we are still improving and are also a bit tired because the pre-season is also important for us to make the fitness at the high level.

“But I’m happy because I repeat the tactical aspect I’m very pleased. For sure we can improve because we conceded a goal that we can avoid, but I’m delighted with the attitude and the will and desire that the players are showing me in this pre-season. I’m very happy.”

Conte reaction

17:32 , Giuseppe Muro

Antonio Conte on Bayern publicly talking about their interest in Harry Kane: “Honestly I didn't hear this. For sure I'm a coach that doesn't speak about players from another team. I don't know why.

“The situation is very clear at Tottenham and Harry is a very important part of the project. Only rumours but I don't like to talk about players from another club. If I want to do something I don't do it through the media.

“Maybe that's a bit direspectful for the other club.”

16:27 , Giuseppe Muro

Here is that first Kane goal...

16:26 , Giuseppe Muro

66 mins: Another change for Spurs as Dier is replaced by Rodon. I think that is a precaution after he was down holding his foot just now. It doesn’t look like anything to worry about.

16:20 , Giuseppe Muro

16:06 , Giuseppe Muro

Kick-off

16:05 , Giuseppe Muro

46 mins: We’re back underway at Ibrox.

16:02 , Giuseppe Muro

Two changes for Spurs at the break. Bissouma and Lucas are on for Bentancur and Royal. So the Lucas experiment at right wing-back continues.

Rangers are unchanged for the second half.

16:00 , Giuseppe Muro

It looks like Bissouma and Lucas are coming on for the second half.

15:54 , Giuseppe Muro

Will we see the introduction of new Spurs signings Clement Lenglet, Yves Bissouma, Ivan Perisic or Djed Spence for their debuts at half-time? Or Richarlison.

45 mins: Kane fires into the wall and that will be the final action of the first-half.

15:47 , Giuseppe Muro

45 mins: Free-kick to Spurs right on the edge of the area as Kulusevski is brought down by Souttar. That could easily have been a penalty. Kane standing over it..

15:43 , Giuseppe Muro

15:35 , Giuseppe Muro

33 mins: It has been one-way traffic since the Rangers goal. Spurs are well on top.

15:35 , Giuseppe Muro

32 mins: Chance for Kane! And it’s another good save from McGregor. Kane is played in behind and his left-foot shot is saved by the legs of McGregor. That’s the first sight at goal that Kane has had.

15:34 , Giuseppe Muro

30 mins: Dier shoots from distance and McGregor pushes the ball away. The Rangers goalkeeper is having a busy afternoon.

15:31 , Giuseppe Muro

26 mins: Now it’s Rangers’ turn to attack and a shot goes over. Then Kulusevski forces McGregor to tip the ball over the bar with a good save. From the resulting corner, Romero heads over.

15:30 , Giuseppe Muro

24 mins: Tottenham go straight down the other end and almost respond immediately. Son squares from Hojbjerg but he shoots wide from the edge of the area. It looked like McGregor might have got a crucial touch.

GOAL! Rangers 1-0 Tottenham | Antonio Colak 23’

15:27 , Giuseppe Muro

Spurs are behind and you cannot say it has not been coming.

Matondo gets past Sessegnon too easily on the right and crosses for Colak to put Rangers ahead from close range.

15:25 , Giuseppe Muro

23 mins: The pacey Matondo is almost released in behind the Spurs backline but Sanchez puts in a crucial sliding block to clear.

15:24 , Giuseppe Muro

22 mins: A chance down the other end as Spurs break. Kulusevski has a shooting opportunity but he tries to cut back onto his left foot and a Rangers defender is able to get back to clear. He needed to be quicker there.

15:23 , Giuseppe Muro

21 mins: A sustained spell of pressure from Rangers. A corner is only half-cleared by Lloris, another cross comes into the box and Sanchez has to clear.

15:20 , Giuseppe Muro

18 mins: Conte is out of his technical area barking instructions at his players. He will be frustrated by what he has seen so far. Royal gets forward down the right and his shot is blocked by Barisic.

15:19 , Giuseppe Muro

17 mins: Tavernier shoots from range and Lloris saves. Kane is then back doing some defending in the left-back area, which sums up how this game is going at the moment.

15:17 , Giuseppe Muro

15 mins: Rangers get in behind the Spurs defence down the right and a cross into the box is gathered by Lloris. Spurs are on the back foot.

15:16 , Giuseppe Muro

14 mins: Good defending from Sanchez. Barisic puts a decent cross into the box from the left, Lloris does not come and Sanchez has to head away.

15:14 , Giuseppe Muro

12 mins: Rangers are enjoying a bit more of the ball now. A cross from Tavernier is too long and Spurs clear.

15:13 , Giuseppe Muro

11 mins: Over the bar from Tavernier. Lloris had that one covered.

15:13 , Giuseppe Muro

10 mins: Rangers work the ball into the Spurs area for the first time but strong defending from Royal snuffs out the danger. Then a robust challenge from Romero on Lawrence. Rangers free-kick from about 25 yards out...

15:09 , Giuseppe Muro

6 mins: Spurs are starting to dominate possession now. Kulusevski is seeing a lot of the ball and Son is looking sharp.

15:06 , Giuseppe Muro

4 mins: Chance for Kulusevski! The winger finds space on the right-hand side of the area and his powerful shot is saved by McGregor behind for a corner, which comes to nothing.

15:04 , Giuseppe Muro

2 mins: An early opportunity for Spurs as Royal gets into the area down the right but Rangers clear. A decent start from the visitors, who have moved the ball quickly early on.

Kick-off!

15:01 , Giuseppe Muro

After finally announcing Djed Spence as their sixth summer signing this week, Spurs will turn their attentions to selling unwanted players.

While they remain in the market for a creative attacker and may target another defender, the focus is on outgoings.

Fabio Paratici has been in Italy, where he has had meetings with AC Milan over Japhet Tanganga and Sampdoria over Bryan Gil.

Matt Doherty or Emerson Royal, who now face fierce competition from Spence and Lucas Moura at right wing-back, could also leave, while Conte has made it clear that Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso, Sergio Reguilon and Harry Winks are not part of his plans.

14:31 , Giuseppe Muro

If you missed it this morning, Julian Nagelsmann has admitted Bayern Munich would love to sign Harry Kane and has refused to rule out of a move for the Tottenham striker.

Bayern are on the lookout for a replacement for Robert Lewandowski and their chief executive Oliver Kahn revealed this week that it would be a “dream” to sign Kane.

Spurs made it clear last summer that Kane was not for sale amid interest from Manchester City and Nagelsmann admits Bayern are likely to be priced out of an immediate move.

But the England captain is in the final two years of his contract at Tottenham and the public interest from Bayern could press Spurs into talks over a new deal.

The 29-year-old is excited by Spurs’ progress under Antonio Conte and increasingly hopeful he can fulfil his ambitions of winning a trophy with his boyhood club next season.

But, with Bayern considering a move, Tottenham will not want to get into a situation where speculation increases over Kane’s future as his contract runs down.

Conte pre-match thoughts

14:24 , Giuseppe Muro

Speaking ahead of the match in Glasgow, Antonio Conte said: “For sure, we are talking about a really good team, they lost the final of the Europa League last season and in the last friendly game, they beat West Ham 3-1.

“It’s a good test in a moment where we are working hard, but at the same time, we want to play a good game and try to be fit for the start of the season.

“Surely, they are more ready than us, they start their season earlier than us, but for many reasons, this test will be good.

“We play against a good team, now they are ready to start the season, more ready than us, for many reasons, it will be a good test, but we are Tottenham, and we have to face every game in the right way, and try to get a win in every game.”

The two teams are playing for The Walter Tull Memorial Cup this afternoon.

Walter Tull was the first black player to sign for Rangers and also played for Spurs during his ground-breaking career which was tragically cut short by the First World War. Indeed, it was at Tottenham where he became Britain’s first black outfield player.

The trophy is being presented at full-time by former Rangers and Spurs striker Jermain Defoe.

So new Spurs signings Clement Lenglet, Yves Bissouma, Ivan Perisic and Djed Spence are all on the bench, along with Richarlison.

Cristian Romero, Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez line up in the back three, with Ryan Sessegnon and Emerson Royal named as the wing-backs.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur are in the midfield with the front three of Dejan Kulusevski, Harry Kane and Heung-min Son.

Big things are expected from Yves Bissouma at Spurs following his £25million move from Rangers.

Prediction

13:20 , Giuseppe Muro

Rangers will not be a walkover by any means, although Spurs looked as if they were building towards getting back into the rhythm of things over the course of the weekend.

For that reason, it seems reasonable to expect an away win.

Tottenham to win 2-1.

Rangers team news

13:09 , Giuseppe Muro

Rangers beat West Ham really rather comfortably last weekend, so should provide a real test for Spurs.

They could hand a debut to their very own Ben Davies after signing him from Liverpool.

13:01 , Giuseppe Muro

Ben Davies is facing a race to be fit for the start of the season after suffering an ankle injury.

The defender was injured after landing awkwardly in Spurs’ pre-season friendly against Sevilla last Saturday and returned to the UK in a protective boot the following day.

He has not trained this week and is touch and go to be ready for the season opener against Southampton on August 6.

Loan signing Clement Lenglet would likely deputise if Davies is ruled out.

"I hope for the start of the season, for the first game, for him to recover," Antonio Conte said this week.

Spurs team news

12:50 , Giuseppe Muro

Antonio Conte could hand debuts to new signings Clement Lenglet, Yves Bissouma, Ivan Perisic and Djed Spence.

Forster and Bissouma returned to training on Wednesday after remaining behind in South Korea to complete a period of isolation after they tested positive for Covid.

Perisic is expected to come off the bench after recovering from a calf injury, while Spence has largely trained individually this summer after being granted time off by former club Middlesbrough while he completed a protracted transfer to Spurs.
