Rangers fans have received refunds from Highland League minnows Fraserburgh after a number were locked out of Bellslea Park for their Scottish Cup tie with the Ibrox giants following a ticket scam.
Fans with genuine tickets were unable to get in after counterfeit tickets were distributed but Broch have now contacted fans and issued refunds.
Greenock Britannia Rangers Supporters Club shared a letter on Twitter that they received from Fraserburgh after one of their members was locked out of the Scottish Cup tie.

As well as refunding the ticket, Broch have also made an offer of complimentary tickets for a future game and expressing “disappointment” at having missed the tie.
The letter, signed by Broch’s chairman Finlay Noble, is a fantastic gesture from the Highland League side after genuine fans travelled hundreds of miles in poor conditions in midweek only to be locked out and miss out on seeing any of the game.
The Gers unsurprisingly strolled past the Highland League side to book their place in the next round where they thumped Ayr United.
Fraserburgh’s tiny ground was packed for the clash with the 54-time Scottish champions leading to a number of fake tickets being made available for the away end.
