Rangers v Motherwell: Fixture change request agreed, just needs Police approval - Keith Jackson

Keith Jackson has shared that Motherwell have agreed to bring forward the Scottish Premiership clash against Rangers.

Writing in the Daily Record, it is shared that the Bears could now take on the Steelmen on Saturday to give that extra day’s rest before taking on RB Leipzig.

Only one hurdle remains, and that is Police Scotland agreeing to sanction the switch to an earlier time.

It has been smooth sailing so far after Giovanni van Bronckhorst asked for help from the authorities within Scotland.

Even Sky has agreed to move the broadcast forward as the split gets underway in the Scottish Premiership.

A decision from the Police is expected today [19 April] and given there are still days until we go to Fir Park, there should be no problems.

The announcement can not be made about the change of plans until the Police have given it the go ahead.

Get it done.

This is plenty enough notice, and it should be green stamped today.

It would be massive if Scotland actually came together and helped one of their clubs given how big of a week it could turn out to be.

Rangers are keeping up their end of the bill in regards to the coefficient, something they have had to do single-handily recently.

That only benefits the likes of Motherwell, who could be fighting for that extra spot to get into Europe next season.

Competing in a huge European semi-final against RB Leipzig is not only massive for the Bears, but for Scotland too, our teams just aren’t meant to get to this stage, but look at us.

We cannot wait for Thursday in Germany yet again, and hopefully, this extra day’s rest can do us the world of good.
