There are increasing risks the upcoming Pacific Shelf 94 v Rangers dead rubber will not go ahead, with fears fans are set to congregate outside their stadium.

After Rangers triumphantly secured their 55th title after 10 long years of waiting, it voided the need to win it in the east of Glasgow, but instead the government, after blaming Rangers for fan celebrations in George Square, are considering abolishing that fixture, and potentially, ending the season early.

It’s another twist in what has been an extraordinary season both on and off the pitch, as Steven Gerrard’s side trod over every side they faced, and not only would fans potentially be outside Parkhead, but more stingingly for John Kennedy’s side, they’d have to deliver a guard of honour for the Champions.

And that is an even better reason to make sure the match doesn’t happen, of course.

The league season may well be under threat from being called, along with this match, which wouldn’t be an absolutely massive problem, given at least one team was good enough to mathematically win it within the timescale.

And of course we are concerned about fan safety come the encounter between the two in 11 days.

We’ll see what develops from here.
