We'll do all we can to help Scotland, says Ibrox chief

Crunch time: Steve Clarke wants help for Scotland’s Euro dream

Steven Gerrard insists Rangers will be willing to move fixtures to help Scotland realise their Euro 2020 dream.

Steve Clarke's side have been drawn to host Israel in the semi-finals of the Euro 2020 play-offs next March, with the winner facing a trip to either Norway or Serbia in the final.

The Israel clash takes place on March 26, five days after Gers are scheduled to face St Mirren in Paisley, although that fixture could yet be moved for TV purposes.

Clarke has already urged Scottish Professional Football League chiefs to "do all they can" to help the Scots by ensuring there are no Sunday fixtures before their vital semi-final Hampden showdown.

And Gerrard said: "I represent this club in this country so for me I give it the support I need to give it. I certainly won't be standing in the way.

"But we don't make those decisions. Ultimately it will be down to the SFA.

"We'll go with the flow and if it means us skipping a game or adjusting a game we'll do everything we can to support (Scotland). That's what you've got to do."
