The Scottish Premiership and Rangers will continue this season despite new lockdown rules enforced on Monday by Scotland.
BBC Journalist Chris McLaughlin has relayed the news on his personal Twitter account, in what will be a massive boost for the Bears and Steven Gerrard.
“Those ‘involved in professional sports, for training, coaching or competing in an event’ will be allowed to leave their homes under new restrictions. Seems professional sport continues as normal, for now,” he wrote.

Football came to a halt last season when COVID-19 first arrived in the United Kingdom, but it appears that won’t happen again this month.
It wasn’t such a bad thing last season.
Everything is different this time around, with Rangers dominating the Scottish Premiership title race, having a 19-point gap to Celtic.
The current system is working relatively well for the likes of the Light Blues, who have followed the rules strictly, apart from George Edmundson and Jordan Jones.
Other clubs, such as Celtic, clearly aren’t taking these new announcements as seriously as others at this desperate time.
The Hoops have jetted away to Dubai after their Old Firm defeat at Ibrox, and it seems strange that they have chosen to set this example.
Nicola Sturgeon’s recent announcement could have caused trouble for the Gers, especially as they close in on the title, but thankfully it hasn’t as it stands.
The game against Aberdeen will go ahead as planned, and the Bears can continue their charge towards that all-important piece of silverware.
