Nuno Tavares has been handed his debut for Arsenal in Saturday’s pre-season friendly against Rangers.

The Portuguese left back was signed from Benfica as back up for Kieran Tierney this summer.

Tavares wasn’t able to play against Hibernian earlier in the week because the paperwork wasn’t completed in time for him to be involved.

Arthur Okonkwo continues in goal after playing the first half of the Gunners’ 2-1 defeat at Easter Road, while Cedric Soares starts in defence alongside Rob Holding and Pablo Mari.
