Ibrox fans have reacted with predictable fury to news that they won’t be able to attend Thursday’s Europa League tie away to Lyon.

Last week it was announced that 2,200 tickets had been given over to away supporters with another 1,000 ticketless fans expected to travel.

The local authorities announced that visiting fans would be banned from the city centre to prevent them from detracting from The Festival of Light which brings thousands of normal people to the city.

With the go-ahead to attend the match fans paid for pre-flight testing and booked up for tests in Lyon to allow them to return to blighty with a Day 2 PCR test also having to be paid for.

In mid-afternoon news came through that the French authorities had banned visiting fans with refunds being issued. It seems that the French economy is going to feel the full backlash of that decision.
