The Daily Record report that Rangers fans could be dealt a blow ahead of next month’s trip to Kilmarnock.

Ideally, the Gers would have rounded off their campaign at Ibrox, but of all possible away trips, Killie isn’t the worst.

Geographically it isn’t far, and Bears are usually given a huge allocation at Rugby Park.

Both the Chadwick and Moffat stands are full to the brim with travelling supporters, outnumbering those of the hosts.

However, it’s suggested that may not be the case this time around.


The Record claim that Killie officials are currently considering giving the Moffat stand back to their own supporters.

Of course, the home fans won’t fill that side of the ground. This would be more of a tactical move to limit the amount of Rangers fans in the stadium.

Steven Gerrard’s team should have second place sewn up by then and won’t have much to play for.

Kilmarnock, though, are vying for a Europa League spot with the Aberdeen and Hibernian. Therefore, they may decide to take a short-term financial hit in order to give Steve Clarke and his players a relative advantage on the day.

It would be a significant blow for Gers fans, as several thousand could miss out on seeing the club’s last outing of 2018/19.
