Heart and Hand shares fears as Rangers v Hearts rescheduled to 4pm on February 6
Rangers have confirmed that four of their Premiership games have been rescheduled after Sky Sports decided to broadcast them live.
Playing in the Europa League knockout stages have also brought about some changes to their fixtures, and Heart and Hand are unhappy with the timing of the Hearts clash on 6 February.
The game at Ibrox will take place at 4 pm, and the club’s official media partner believes it could cause chaos if the subway closes at 6 pm as usual.
Heart and Hand said on their official Twitter account: “That 4 pm game will cause chaos if Subway pulls its usual 6 pm closure.”
The live coverage of the game has seen the Premiership official broadcaster schedule the Hearts game after the Motherwell vs Celtic own, which kicks off at 1.30 pm on the same Sunday.
Glasgow Subway closes at 6 pm every day, and fans could have reservations over attending the game given the discomfort transporting themselves back home could cause them.
Sky Sports have apparently not put that into consideration, and that will not be doing Rangers and their fans any favours.
Nothing can be done about it right now except if covid-19 forces postponement of games or closure of stadiums.
The outbreak of a new variant of the virus saw clubs down South postpone a lot of their matches this past weekend, and there are fears that could extend to other parts of the United Kingdom.
Rangers have started their title defence well, remaining top of the table despite Steven Gerrard’s unexpected exit, and they will be hoping they can finish the campaign in the same position.
