Plenty of Rangers Fans are Furious After Cowdenbeath Cup Tie is Postponed

Rangers have seen their Scottish Cup tie against Cowdenbeath called-off tonight – and there’s plenty of the club’s supporters who have been left absolutely furious.

The semi-pro League Two side were due to take on Steven Gerrard and his star-studded squad this evening in the first of the competition’s fourth-round fixtures, but just three hours before kick-off, it was announced a local referee had deemed the pitch unplayable – allegedly because the area surrounding one of the corner flags had frozen over.

As you can probably guess, Gers fans were incandescent after hearing the news, particularly those who’d already left home to make the long journey to Central Park, only to be left disappointed:

The match will now be played on Wednesday January 30, assuming all of the corner flags have adequately thawed out in time.

What do you think of the decision? And should the SFA take some of the blame for scheduling the match for a Friday night kick-off instead of a Saturday afternoon?
