Sakala trained with his new teammates and manager Steven Gerrard yesterday ahead of today’s match.
It’s however not clear if the former Liverpool midfielder will give Sakala a run in on the pitch or not given that he just joined the team’s preseason this week.
Arsenal is expected to put up a strong lineup with the likes of Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Alexander Lacazette, Nicolas Pepe, Emile Smith Rowe, Thomas Partey, and Hector Bellerin all likely to start.
Sakala who penned a four-year deal with the Glasgow-based outfit was unveiled at Ibrox on Thursday after finalizing his paperwork.
Rangers will start their Scottish Premiership title defense on 31st July at home against Livingston FC.
Sakala will be looking to hit the ground running with goals having scored 24 goals in 80 appearances during his time with Oostende.
The match will be live on Rangers TV.
