Legendary Rangers forward Nacho Novo is set to enter the boxing ring to face a TikTok influencer in front of a crowd at the Hydro this summer.

Novo had a hall of fame career at Ibrox, winning four league titles, a Scottish Cup and two league cups. However, the now 45-year-old is trading his football boots for boxing gloves, reports Glasgow Live.

The ex-Rangers man's opponent, Caz Milligan, announced the bout on his X page. The Fife-born influencer currently has 35,000 followers on Instagram and more than 113,000 followers on Tik Tok.

This won't be Milligan's first time in the ring after he previously lost a fight to fellow social media star the Property Boss. In the promotional video posted online Novo revealed he wanted to push himself after battling to overcome health problems, including a heart attack in 2018.

The striker said: "Whatever happens in life you can push yourself try whatever you want to do."

The scrap will take place at the Hydro on August 10.

His opponent added: "I was once a kid with Novo number 10 printed on my back but now I'm going to have the referee counting to 10 with Nacho Novo on his back."

Tickets for the August 10 are now on sale with Ticketmaster.
