SFA make statement as Rangers stars await Covid-19 suspension decision

The SFA Covid-19 Joint Response Group have released a statement regarding the restarting of Scottish lower league football as a host of Rangers loanees lie in wait.

The Ibrox club has a number of youth players out at clubs across the country including some at League One and League Two clubs, where football has been suspended since January.

Following the release of the Scottish Government’s roadmap out of lockdown, the group have released a statement regarding the situation.


And just like the Government’s comments on how we get out of the mess they helped put us in, they won’t exactly fill those Rangers loanees with confidence.

“The Joint Response Group notes the First Minister’s road map out of lockdown outlined at Holyrood today,” reads the SFA statement.

“We await further clarification from ministers in the coming days on the implications for Scottish football at all levels, including leagues and clubs currently under the Scottish FA suspension and the wider grassroots game.

“We will provide a more detailed update when ministers outline the road map for affected areas of Scottish football.

“The JRG is committed to working with government to ensure the national game is primed to return within the ‘progressive easing’ timeline announced today.”

The lower leagues of Scottish football have been suspended since the 11th of January and as it stands there’s no roadmap out the situation.

Rangers youngsters such as Kieran Wright at Partick Thistle, Nicky Hogarth at Cowdenbeath, or Matthew Shiels at Clyde are amongst seven Ibrox kids who face a wait to find out when they can play again this season.

In other news, Rangers fans have been reacting as a popular ex-Ibrox star earns a managerial contract with a Championship side.
