Rangers v Falkirk could be postponed as more snow hits Glasgow - view

COMMENT

Rangers are due to take on Falkirk in the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup on Sunday afternoon but after the phenomenal amount of snow that has been dumped across central Scotland since Tuesday, the weather is likely to cause serious problems for the Gers.

With 18 inches of snow falling in a little over 48 hours and more forecast over the weekend, the likelihood of getting Ibrox clear to play and clearing the access routes for supporters will almost certainly prove an impossible task.

While the pitch itself may be playable the areas around Ibrox won’t be and will pose a serious risk with knee-deep snow lying and likely to turn to ice.

If the clash with Paul Hartley’s side does fall victim to the weather it will mean Graeme Murty’s side going almost two weeks without a competitive game before going head-to-head with Old Firm rivals Celtic on March 11th.

If the weather clears quickly in the early part of next week the Gers could look to host Falkirk in midweek ahead of the Celtic clash but with the Hoops looking to re-arrange their postponed Scottish Premiership clash with Dundee for Wednesday night, it will be difficult to fit in for the Light Blues.
