Rangers update on Napoli Champions League fixture amid ongoing 'uncertainty'

Rangers have issued an update regarding their Champions League fixture against Napoli which is scheduled to take place on Tuesday.

The match is currently in limbo after the passing of Queen Elizabeth II prompted the cancellation of all professional football fixtures across the UK this weekend, including Rangers trip to Aberdeen on Saturday.

Government guidance has left it up to individual sports authorities to decide whether fixtures should go ahead, and Rangers have confirmed that the club are in discussions with UEFA and Police Scotland over whether the match can take place as planned.
