SPFL and SFA ‘In Urgent Talks’ About Fate Of This Weekend’s Fixtures

The SPFL and SFA are ‘in urgent talks’ about the fate of this weekend’s fixtures.

The world is currently gripped by the COVID-19 outbreak, leading to a number of sporting events being cancelled.

Rangers were in action last night, losing 3-1 to Bayer Leverkusen in the first leg of their Europa League last-16 tie.
