Strangely, the Record now report ---


" The Eusebio Cup organisers who blamed Rangers fans for the match being scrapped have now backtracked.


Pedro Caixinha’s side were due to take on Benfica in a glamour friendly on Friday in Hamilton, Canada – only for the game to be called off last weekend.


Elite Soccer Entertainment CEO Fernando Pacheco had pointed the finger at Rangers supporters for a lack of ticket take-up in an interview with Canadian paper the Hamilton Spectator.


But in a statement ESE have now distanced themselves from the earlier, bizarre quotes attributed to their chief executive.


The statement read: "Elite Soccer Entertainment would like to apologise to the fans, SL Benfica & Rangers Football Club for the match cancellation of the 2017 Eusébio Cup edition, which was scheduled to be played on the 6th of October in Hamilton, Canada.


"Due to unforeseen reasons and poor ticket sales it was not possible for ESE to meet the commitments acquired towards Sport Lisboa e Benfica and Glasgow Rangers under the terms and conditions that were agreed upon.


"This situation goes beyond the control or responsibility of any of the clubs above mentioned. "
