Rangers loanee Kai Kennedy loos like he’s going to be frustrated for the second weekend in a row as he looks to make his Raith Rovers debut – after the Fifers confirmed they’d requested Saturday’s clash with Inverness CT be postponed due to a Covid-19 outbreak.

Kennedy swapped the Highlands for Fife earlier this month and had hoped to make his debut in last weekend’s Scottish Cup tie at Stirling Albion before it fell victim to the weather.

With Raith due to host the Caley Jags on Saturday, they released a statement on the club website announcing they’d contacted the SPFL over a postponement of the Championship tie at Starks Park, saying: “The club is currently dealing with an outbreak of COVID-19 amongst the playing and backroom staff.

 

“We have applied to the SPFL for postponement of this Saturday’s match v Inverness Caledonian Thistle, and are awaiting a response.

“In the meantime, we are co-operating fully with the appropriate authorities.”

Kennedy started the campaign on loan with Inverness before returning to Ibrox, signing a new long-term contract then joining Raith for the rest of the season.

The SFA’s recent decision to halt all but the top two divisions has left a number of Rangers loanees in limbo, while an SPFL member club has called for drastic changes to the Scottish game.
