The coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc across the world, as well as in football, and all clubs in Scotland, including Glasgow Rangers, are likely to feel the full effects of the situation.
The virus has led to the suspension of football across Europe and the planet, which has seen the matchday revenues of clubs take a massive hit. The end of the Scottish Premiership, Championship, League One and League Two seasons will have at least seen clubs earn prize money for their current positions, but that may not be enough to see them through these difficult times.
Dunfermline already seem to be feeling the heat. They confirmed on Friday that they have released no fewer than 17 players following the end of their contracts, meaning that they will be out of a job in the near future. This has caught the attention of many of the ‘Gers supporters, although they don’t seem to have too much sympathy for them given the way they acted around the independent investigation vote.
Will Rangers win the league next season?

Dunfermline releasing ALL players whose contracts are ending – none will be renewed. Odds are when/if these players sign new contracts in a few months time it will be for a fraction of the wages they were on, which were already borderline living wage.
