UEFA has today ordered that a section of Ibrox Stadium will be closed off when Rangers play their home Europa League, Group G match against Feyenoord at Ibrox Stadium on Thursday, September 19.
A total of 3000 seats will be closed off because ofsectarian singing from a small group of fans during the first leg of the play-off fixture against Legia Warsaw in Poland last Thursday evening (August 22.)
The Club had already informed UEFA that we would be declining tickets for Rangers next away European tie, which will be in Switzerland against BSC Young Boys Thursday, October 3, and this decision would have had a significant bearing on the governing body’s deliberations.
However, disappointing and painful though this latest ruling of UEFA’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body undoubtedly is the Club would like to congratulate our supporters for their fantastic backing last night when they showed the world why they are the best. The manner in which they drove their team on to victory over Legia Warsaw was exemplary and the manager, Steven Gerrard, who has vast experience of playing in the world’s greatest arenas, admitted that this magnificent support was one of the reasons he accepted the offer to manage our Club.
We can all look forward to another European adventure – after Sunday of course – and to see a full list of fixtures and dates please go to: HERE
