Scottish Professional Football League reigning champions, Glasgow Rangers, will now have the chance to get physical support from their fans during their Uefa Europa League encounter with Olympique Lyon.
The Glasgow based side had earlier announced through their official website that the Gers fans wouldn’t be permitted into the Groupama Stadium due to the Festival Of Light in France.
The Festival of Lights in Lyon, France, is a popular event that originally aimed at expressing gratitude toward Mary, mother of Jesus around December 8 of each year.
In a statement through their official website, Glasgow Rangers said;
“We welcome the updated position that our supporters are now able to access the stadium on Thursday night in Lyon, France.
“Nevertheless, we understand that the situation continues to cause uncertainty and frustration with many supporters having cancelled their flights and/or accommodation.
“We are currently dealing with CTM to ascertain if they now intend to travel to this match. Our corporate flight which was cancelled yesterday cannot be rearranged due to the short timescale involved.
We are currently liaising with OL regarding ticket distribution arrangements for those supporters who manage to make alternative travel arrangements to the match.
“A further communication will be available later today or early tomorrow to confirm uplift arrangements.
We apologise for the inconvenience caused to our support who will share our frustration at this situation.”
Olympique Lyon take on Rangers in the matchday six of the UEL and a round of 32 spot is at stake for the Scottish giants with Lyon having qualified.
