Rangers’ Champions League group stage game at home to Napoli has been pushed back 24 hours to Wednesday following discussions between Police Scotland, the Glasgow club and UEFA.

European football’s governing body has announced that the tie at Ibrox Stadium, originally scheduled for Tuesday, has been rescheduled for Wednesday September 14 at 8pm.

A UEFA statement explained: “This is due to severe limitations on police resources and organizational issues related to the ongoing events surrounding the national mourning for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.”
