Late Rangers scare as the snow comes down at Somerset Park - report

Rangers’ fifth round Scottish Cup tie versus Ayr United could be called off today, as a late flurry of snow has hit Somerset Park, according to a report.
The Daily Record report that ground staff are working tirelessly to ensure that the fixture goes ahead, as snow continues to fall.
Part of the reason that the snow is eagerly being worked at is because Sky Sports were due to televise the fixture, that was due to begin at 2:30pm.
Should it be called off, this would be the second time the Gers had to rearrange their cup-ties, having to reschedule the fourth round tie versus Fraserburgh due to similar circumstances.
Travelling fans will not have to worry too much should the game be cancelled, as it is only a 50 minute journey down the M77 to Ayr from Glasgow.
The report states that Ayr United will be desperate to get the game going, as they need vital match experience after slipping eight points behind Raith Rovers in the Scottish League One.
Graeme Murty too could use the fixture to utilise the players recently returning from injury to gain match sharpness and experience.
Should the game go ahead, Rangers will be eager to win, after seeing their bitter rivals Celtic progress to the quarter-finals after beating Partick Thistle 3-2.
