Forfar Athletic fans will be left disappointed with the news today that the Loons’ visit to Ibrox to face Rangers on Saturday, November 16th has been postponed.

An announcement was posted on the club’s website at lunch time today advising fans of the decision.

It states: “Forfar Athletic are disappointed to announce that our visit to Ibrox to face Rangers on Saturday, November 16 has been postponed.

“We had been advised yesterday that it was likely to go ahead and Rangers had forwarded tickets to us for sale.

“However, following further international calls today for Rangers players, the SPFL has advised us that the game will now be postponed and re-arranged for in all probability a midweek slot in December. Tuesday or Wednesday December 3rd/4th the most likely dates.

“It has to be emphasised that Forfar Athletic have no complaint with the Ibrox club on this issue, as they have attempted as best they could to feed us up to the minute information as it came to hand.

“Similarly Forfar Athletic have attempted to keep supporters fully informed over the past week as the scenario developed.

“‘Loons’ officials realise that this news will come as a disappointment to supporters, some of whom were looking to make a weekend trip to Glasgow taking in the Friday night Scotland fixture as a bonus.”
