SPL extend the season to accomodate Rangers


It’s official, if Rangers reach the final of the UEFA Cup the SPL will extend the season to yet again accomodate Rangers.

Depending on the outcome of Rangers games with Fiorentina Celtic’s season will either end on May 18 or May 22- incredible.

Two fixture schedules have been produced CLICK HERE to view with special provision made for Rangers outstanding games against Motherwell and St Mirren.

St Mirren players have a holiday booked for May 18 but will be required to postpone that to play Rangers on May 20 if Rangers go through to the final.

This is the same SPL that excused Rangers from facing the mighty FC Gretna in December and also decided against scheduling the St Mirren-Rangers match, postponed for the Scotland-Italy game, whilst Celtic played their postponed fixture with Falkirk.

The lesson here is to avoid difficult looking fixtures claiming to be working for ‘the co-efficient’ and at the end of the day the plans of Celtic, Aberdeen, Dundee United, Motherwell, Hibs and St Mirren will be disrupted to accomodate Rangers
