Rangers have confirmed that tonight’s Europa League clash with Bayer Leverkusen will go ahead without restrictions on supporters attending – and fans on Twitter are delighted the game will take place.
There were fears the game would take place behind closed-doors or be cancelled altogether as the coronavirus pandemic sweeps across the planet.

The impending threat of the coronavirus has intensified in recent days with many games being played behind closed doors as countries struggle to deal with the outbreak.
However, Ibrox is now set for a tense night as the Light Blues take on Peter Bosz’ side not knowing how much longer the competition will be allowed to continue.
With two massive games in the coming days for the Gers, fans will be hoping Steven Gerrard’s side can lift themselves after recent poor domestic form.
Fans were buzzing to know the game was still going ahead – and quickly took to Twitter to let the club know all about it.
Here are some of the comments from Rangers fans on Twitter:
