Rangers' Scottish Cup Cowdenbeath tie postponed due to frozen pitch
Rangers' fans will have to wait a bit longer to see Northern Ireland captain Steven Davis make his debut after the club's Scottish Cup fourth-round tie away to Cowdenbeath was postponed because of a frozen pitch.
The announcement follows a 4.30pm pitch inspection at Central Park and the match will now be played on Wednesday January 30.
Rangers boss Steven Gerrard had confirmed Davis and fellow new signing Jermain Defoe would both play some part in the tie.
The duo signed for the club on loan earlier this month and got to grips with their new team-mates at their mid-season training camp in Tenerife.
Tickets were sold out at the 4,300 capacity ground for the match, which was due to be shown live on TV.
