Rangers abandon vaccine passport trial

Rangers have abandoned their vaccine passport trial for Sunday’s game, which means that any Gers fan will be allowed into the stadium.

According to the Scottish Sun, the Scottish Government plans to enforce vaccine passports on any stadium of over 10,000, and the Gers have abandoned the plans for this weekend along with a few other SPFL clubs.

There is a two week grace period for these clubs to sort out any issues, but as it stands, Rangers will not be taking part in this scheme this weekend, and it remains to be seen what happens going forward.

An impasse over vaccine passports.

Now, you would hope that the Gers and the other clubs involved can resolve these issues quickly because otherwise, there could be some problems with the Scottish Government ahead.

The lucky thing for the Bears is that they have been given a grace period, but surely cancelling the trial at the first sign of trouble doesn’t look too good?

This could lead to the Scottish Government questioning the Gers and the other clubs who have abandoned the trial.

Given that there is an international break coming up, surely this was the only chance Rangers had to trial the new system?

So as it stands, anyone – apart from Hibernian fans – can enter Ibrox on Sunday even if they haven’t had a vaccine, which could cause problems.

Certainly, we will be watching on with interest to see exactly what the Gers do after the international break.
