Ajax drew with Glasgow Rangers on Tuesday in a friendly in Scotland: 1-1. John Heitinga scored the Ajax goal at Ibrox Stadium.

Rangers even took the lead when Cuellar headed in a corner kick. It was the first goal allowed for Ajax in the preseason.

Dennis Rommedahl made his debut for Ajax in the second half. He went to the right wing and Kennedy to the left. Midway through the second half, Laurent Delorge, Vurnon Anita and Mitchell Donald were also brought on.

Rommedahl quickly proved his worth. The latest siging was set up by Sneijder and with a good cross, the Dane found the open Heitinga: 1-1.
Ajax even had the chance to win the friendly match, but Kennedy's efoort was saved by the goalkeeper.

Scottish side Falkirk FC are the next opponents. Ajax will first train for three days at the grounds of Stirling University, after which they wiil play at Falikirk on Saturday.
