Rangers fans affected as Fantasy Football Scotland pulls plug

Rangers fans have been affected after Fantasy Football Scotland decided to pull the plug on the venture, describing it as “not fit for purpose”.

The popular fantasy concept involves choosing a squad of players from across an entire league who win points based on performances and a set of rules.

But with many fans from across Scotland excited over the launch of the Scottish Premiership’s own game, they’ll be bitterly disappointed.

In an email sent out to all users of the Fantasy Football Scotland game, representatives said:

“We fully accept and recognise the issues experienced by many users since the launch of our game. Despite our best efforts it has become clear that it is currently not fit for purpose.

“Fantasy Football Scotland will be back, but for the time being we have regretfully taken the decision to pull the game from use. We gave this our best shot. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough.

“We apologise to all those who were excited about the fantasy football season, all those who set up leagues and bought into what we were doing. We are truly gutted.”

The popular gaming platform gave no indication if, or when, they plan on returning. It’s a kick in the teeth for supporters who invested time and effort into the leagues.

It just means Scotland will have to wait a little longer for a functional Fantasy Football Scotland game.
