Rangers SLO Says Bayer Leverkusen Game ‘Not At Risk’ Of Being Behind Closed Doors

Rangers’ supporters liaison officer has insisted that the club’s Europa League last-16 first-leg clash with Bayer Leverkusen tonight is not at risk of being played behind closed doors.

There is an emergency COBRA meeting taking place at Westminster this afternoon, with The Telegraph reporting that Great Britain will move into a ‘delay phase’ to deal with the rapid COVID-19 outbreak.

With bringing in that phase, the UK could cancel large events, close schools and businesses.

And that could obviously have a big impact on football, with Sky Sports reporting that UEFA is considering suspending the Europa League.

So you can understand the worry among Rangers fans about tonight’s game.

According to club supporters liaison officer Greg Marshall, though, the game is not at risk of being played with no fans:

Obviously the situation could change between now and tonight’s game – particularly if the UK government take a strong approach to dealing with the virus outbreak.
