The Gers were due to face Cove in the third round in January before the Scottish FA suspended all football beneath the Championship in January.

Gerrard admits his side are “fine” with the schedule as things sit, pointing to the experience of the last few seasons, but confessed the Scottish Cup may prompt a “conversation with the authorities.”

“We have to wait until March 1 to see what the situation is with the Scottish Cup If that was to go ahead and we’re still in Europe we may have a conversation with the authorities,” Gerrard [Daily Record].

“We’re fine with the schedule as it is. If you’re going to go far in Europe, you have to accept that it will be thick and fast, a lot of games.

“We have had enough experience of it together to handle it.
