Cowdenbeath post update ahead of Rangers Scottish Cup clash

Almost a fortnight ago, Rangers’ Scottish Cup tie away to Cowdenbeath, was postponed.
Fans were up in arms with the decision, which  Superscoreboard suggested was made due to a small corner of the pitch being frozen. 
It delayed the Gers’ return to competitive action after the Winter Break, robbing them of vital preparation ahead of the trip to Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership.

This time around, it looks as though the Cowdenbeath clash will take place.

The Scottish League Two outfit posted an update on Monday, showing the considerable measures employed, to ensure there is no controversy with Wednesday night’s rearranged fixture.
Instead of basic covers, Cowdenbeath have now brought in a temporary heating system to keep the sub-zero temperatures at bay.
It’s certainly doing the trick, with the attached photos showing the pitch to be in near immaculate condition.

For many of the Cowdenbeath players, this is the opportunity of a lifetime.
They have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Although Steven Gerrard is likely to make changes, the Rangers players would do well to bare that in mind.
