Rangers fans still to be given permission by French police to attend Lyon match

Rangers fans still do not know if they can attend the Europa League clash in France against Lyon amid issues with the French police.

According to the Scotsman, there was a contingent of Gers fans that were keen on making the trip, but they have been left in the dark along with the club with ten days to go.

Gers showcased their frustrations and gave an update to the fans that they had not received any further news from France.

A part of the club’s statement said: “After engaging with Lyon and the local authorities in France, we are currently unable to provide clarity on the ticketing allocation for our away support.

“This is of great frustration. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we are yet to receive confirmation from police as to their ability to adequately resource the operation required to facilitate our travelling support in Lyon.”


This issue has not been addressed properly and it has put the Rangers fans in such a bad spot.

To plan international trips, they would have to make sure of so many things and are still left in the dark with little over a week to go.

Lyon’s lack of clarity is infuriating, at the moment, and the least they can do is communicate the issue with the club and then take things forward.

As things stand, we do not know whether or not away fans will be allowed for the game.

Even though it is a dead rubber, with the top spots decided, the team would like to have their players available for this one.

Hopefully, the fans get an answer one way or another, as keeping them hanging for so long is not the right way to go about it.
