Rangers: Fans bemoan scheduling of Scottish Cup game for a Friday night - Rangers

Plenty of Rangers fans have been complaining about the scheduling of their Scottish Cup fixture next month for a Friday night.

The televised fixtures for the fourth round of the cup were announced yesterday (as per scottishfa.co.uk), with the Light Blues’ home game against Stranraer moved to Friday January 17th with a 7:45pm kick-off due to its selection for live broadcasting by Premier Sports, as noted by @ibroxrocks on Twitter.
