[FT] Rangers 0 - 1 Celtic


Recommended Posts

The Betfred Cup Final could be put at risk after horror weather hit Glasgow the night before the game.

Rangers face Celtic in the Hampden showdown but the downpour of rain could leave the pitch unplayable.

With more rain expected overnight and a flood alert put in place it could leave the massive derby at risk.

Heavy rainfall almost put an end to Scotland's 6-0 win over San Marino back in October when John McGinn netted a hat-trick.

The rain was lying on the surface that day after the downpour and similar could happen on Sunday and would leave the game in major doubt.

Transport systems have also been hit with high winds effecting Scotrail's services.

It's unclear if the SPFL have any plans in place to check on the pitch on Sunday morning ahead of the game which is due to kick-off at 3pm.

It would also leave the governing body needing to find a suitable day to play the game in future.

Shambles and let’s hope it doesn’t come to that?

Presumably they're not so stupid as to neglect examining the pitch as early as possible. Make decisions on the condition and take steps to resolve any issues if possible. In a number of ways it's the biggest game Scotland has seen in years.

It will have a worldwide audience and I would judge it fair to say this game will have people watching on every continent aside from maybe Antarctica. But I wouldn't entirely rule that out either.
