'Time to defrost' - Rangers star delivers verdict on Ayr thrashing
Rangers midfielder Sean Goss has joked it is “time to defrost” after the Gers’ 6-1 win over Ayr United was hit by heavy snow which looked like forcing the game to be abandoned.
Ayr’s groundstaff had to clear the pitch before the game after a heavy snowfall before returning before half-time and forcing the referee to check the pitch’s condition during the break.
Snow fell for long spells of the game at frozen Somerset Park as the Ger scored five second-half goals to book their place in the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup.
Goss revealed his delight at the win in “tough conditions” and praised his team-mates’ performance over the League One side.
“Good 6-1 win from the boys in tough conditions! Time to defrost!” Goss said on his personal Twitter account.

The German-born midfielder joined the Gers on loan until the end of the season from QPR and has quickly become an important part of Graeme Murty’s side.
The ex-Manchester United youngster has impressed with his performances and was unlucky not to get his name on the scoresheet in the comprehensive win.
Goss’ first-half strike from the edge of the box rattled Jack Ruddy’s crossbar before Alfredo fired home the rebound with a delightful half-volley.
The Ibrox giants last won the Scottish Cup in 2009 after a 1-0 win over Falkirk and haven’t won any major silverware since lifting the Scottish Premiership in 2011.
