BBC share update as Rangers hold talks with SPFL

Rangers have said that they’re in talks with the SPFL about moving their domestic fixtures to accommodate their Europa League dates.

After beating Braga in the quarter-finals, Gers set up a date with German side RB Leipzig.

Beating them in the competition would mean that they’ll go through to a European final.

However, the Premier League recently moved fixtures around for their teams Liverpool and Manchester City in the Champions League.

With calls for the SPFL to do the same, BBC are now reporting that Gers are having conversations regarding the same after Giovanni van Bronckhorst confirmed it in his press conference.

He said, “You have seen in other countries where a lot of games are moved, different dates or even kick-off times were changed. I think we are having talks now.”

The SPFL are discussing the matter with Motherwell, Sky Sports and the police.

Must do this

It only makes sense for leagues to step in and make changes based on how well their teams do in Europe.

Fixture changes happen even to accommodate domestic cup games so they certainly should for these things.

If one of their teams achieves European glory then it’s beneficial for the respective league.

It brings in more broadcasters and sponsors which in turn helps the game grow in the particular country.

Hopefully, the SPFL are reasonable with this one and postpone the fixture against Motherwell.

It would surely give Rangers a better chance to get the job done over RB Leipzig when the two sides square off in a few weeks.

In other Rangers news, the club have terminated a major deal citing a breach of contract which also comprises of significant branding issues.
