The club from Ibrox has used the phrase sporting integrity to inform their fans that they won’t be allowed to attend the away match with Napoli on October 26.
Around 5,000 loyal bears have already booked flights and accommodation for the match but they will either have to stay at home or go on a sight-seeing trip with no chance of getting into the Diego Maradona Stadium.
Matchday 2 has been put back 24 hours on the condition that no Napoli fans are inside Ibrox despite many fans setting off today and tomorrow.
The Sporting Integrity card has now finally been played with no away fans allowed to attend when he clubs meet again in Italy next month.
Many Ibrox fans missed out on a day trip to Amsterdam when the club’s official charter firm pulled out, hundreds of fans tried to leave the stadium at half time with the Europa League finalists trailing 3-0.
This afternoon the grief-stricken Ibrox club announced:
RANGERS can today confirm the upcoming UEFA Champions League match with SSC Napoli at Ibrox has been rescheduled for Wednesday, 14 September at 8pm.
This is due to the severe limitations on policing resources and organisational challenges related to the ongoing events surrounding the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Rangers, of course, recognise this switch in date will inconvenience a number of our loyal supporters, and refunds will be available to those unable to attend the match.
Additionally, no away supporters will be present at the match, allowing the club to make additional tickets available to MyGers members as a priority.
UEFA have also confirmed that as a matter of sporting integrity, no Rangers fans will be permitted to attend the return fixture in Naples.
The club can only apologise for any inconvenience caused by the most unique and sad circumstances which are beyond our control.
It is believed that bears that have already paid for travel to Naples may be reimbursed with five MyGers points for each £100 spent on flights and hotels.
