Motherwell release statement after fans locked out Rangers match

Rangers will not be providing an allocation for Motherwell fans at Ibrox this Sunday, the Fir Park club have confirmed.

The Scottish Premiership champions will commence with their delayed flag day celebrations this weekend against Motherwell. But ‘Well fans hoping to attend the match – Graham Alexander’s side potentially having the chance to go top of the Premiership – will not be able to go to Ibrox. This is because of ‘ongoing restrictions at Ibrox.’

A statement reads: “Motherwell fans will not be able to buy tickets for our weekend trip to face Rangers. Our opponents have advised us that, due to ongoing restrictions at Ibrox, no away allocation will be sent for Sunday’s match.

“Having initially been declined an allocation, subsequent dialogue led to Rangers providing us with a detailed explanation that, due to the displacement of some supporters due to a Covid “red zone”, an away section is not possible.

“While regrettable that no Motherwell fans can attend, we accept that Covid restrictions have led to an unavoidable situation. We have asked the SPFL for permission to instead show the game at our bars at Fir Park, and we are awaiting approval. Details on how to buy the match from Rangers on pay-per-view will be made available shortly.”
