Rangers match postponed as Ross County unable to reach Glasgow

Rangers have confirmed tonight's match against Ross County has been postponed.

Club chiefs have announced the match has been called off after Ross County players and staff were unable to reach Glasgow due to adverse weather.

The match had been due to kick-off at 7.45pm on Wednesday, December 27 but will now be rescheduled.

A Rangers statement confirmed the Ibrox playing surface was in "good condition" but the match was called off due to the travel issues for the visiting team.

Meanwhile, County chiefs revealed the decision was made after consultation with Police Scotland regarding weather conditions on the A9.

The club had previously warned supporters of treacherous conditions on the road with Bear NW Trunk Roads advising drivers to avoid the route as much as possible.

The road was closed in both directions around 12pm due to adverse weather conditions caused by Storm Gerrit.

A Rangers statement confirmed: "Rangers can confirm this evening’s Scottish Premiership fixture with Ross County has been postponed.

"Despite the Ibrox playing surface being in good condition and ready to host the match, adverse weather conditions on the A9 means our visitors have been unable to reach Glasgow.

"A new date for the fixture will be confirmed in due course."

A Ross County statement on X, formerly Twitter, added: "Following consultation with Police Scotland regarding today’s weather conditions on the A9, this evening’s match against Rangers has been postponed."
