Rangers v St Mirren game a wash-out

The Scottish Premier League have been forced to postpone tomorrow’s scheduled game between Rangers against St Mirren amid “significant water damage” at Ibrox.

Numerous matches have been postponed in recent weeks amid snow and ice but the subsequent thaw has put paid to the game.

“The thaw following the recent extreme cold has led to significant water damage in various parts of the stadium including interruption to the water supply in some spectator areas,” said the SPL.

"The extent of the damage is such, there is no prospect of the necessary repairs being completed before the weekend.”

A Rangers statement added: "It is regrettable that the game is off and we feel for the supporters but the situation was unavoidable given the amount of damage to the pipes at the stadium."

There is also doubt about the clash between St Johnstone and Dundee United with icy conditions around McDiarmid Park.
