Rangers: Gers’ Champions League fixture will not be reversed

Rangers: Gers’ Champions League fixture will not be reversed -Rangers News

The Rangers Review journalist Jonny McFarlane has revealed that Glasgow Rangers‘ UEFA Champions League fixture in midweek will not be reversed.

The Lowdown: Uncertainty

There is some uncertainty whether Champions League fixtures involving British teams, especially if they are playing at home, will be allowed to go ahead in midweek.

This is after the passing of Her Majesty The Queen, and to pay respects, the Ibrox outfit’s proposed match at Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership this weekend has been postponed, as has every other football match in the country which was set to take place.

The Latest: Reversing fixture not an option

Taking to Twitter, McFarlane has revealed that a proposal for the Gers to play their proposed home fixture against Napoli in midweek in Naples instead as a reverse fixture ‘categorically won’t happen’, amid uncertainty whether the game will be played in Scotland following The Queen’s passing.

He stated: “I understand Rangers travelling to Italy on Tuesday to play Napoli in a Champions League fixture reverse is not an option that’s been considered by the club and it categorically won’t happen.”

The Verdict: Waiting game

It is now a waiting game to see if the fixture will be played at Ibrox, amid uncertainty over the length of the mourning period following The Queen’s passing.

Footballing bodies felt as if the postponement of this weekend’s fixtures were needed in order to pay respects to The Queen, and now all eyes will be on whether the next set of fixtures for British teams – the Champions League in midweek – will go ahead or also be postponed.

Nonetheless, supporters who have already bought their tickets for the clash, and may have already sorted out travelling and accommodation arrangements, face a wait over whether they will now have to cancel their plans, or can indeed go and watch the game.
