Rangers will travel to Hamilton Academical in the fifth round of the Scottish Cup, but the club’s supporters have one major gripe.
The Ibrox side progressed by defeating Stranraer 2-0 on Friday night in a performance Steven Gerrard admitted had “bored” him.
Hamilton progressed after thumping Edinburgh City 5-0 in their Scottish Cup tie this weekend.
The tie will take place on the weekend of the 8th of February as Rangers look to win the competition for the first time since 2009.
Scottish Cup draw in full:
Inverness vs Livingston
Clyde vs Celtic
BSC Glasgow vs Dundee United or Hibs
St Mirren vs Motherwell
Ayr United vs St Johnstone
Aberdeen vs Kilmarnock
Hamilton vs Rangers
Arbroath or Falkirk vs Hearts
Some Rangers fans might’ve preferred a tie against a lower league side at Ibrox, others might’ve enjoyed the chance to face Celtic at Ibrox, some might even be happy with Hamilton.
But many supporters are frustrated with the news Steven Gerrard’s side will be taking the short trip to New Douglas Park.
Namely because of its notorious plastic pitch:
Yet another plastic pitch. WTF?
