Glasgow Rangers’ Europa League clash against Lincoln Red Imps could be thrown into doubt as Scottish Cabinet Secretary for Justice Humza Yousaf revealed that Gibraltar is on a watch-list of countries where Covid-19 cases appear to be on the rise.
The Gers are set to travel to the British Overseas Territory to face the Imps on September 17th, but the current pandemic could prove to be an obstacle, as it has done throughout the last six months. Speaking about the latest developments, Yousaf tweeted:
“If arriving into Scotland from Portugal or French Polynesia from 4 am Sat (5th Sept) you’ll have to self-isolate for 14 days. Gibraltar high up our watch list of countries we are monitoring closely.”
In some cases, athletes will be exempt from these regulations, but that may not be the case here, and UEFA have already confirmed that any team that is unable to fulfill their fixtures will be eliminated from the competition.
Do you think Rangers will be allowed to travel to Gibraltar?
It would be a massive shame if the Gers were not able to compete in the game – after all, they made the round of 16 last term, and Steven Gerrard would likely want to put another big run together – but of course, safety must come first.
