I should have been home yesterday, will be lucky to get home tomorrow. Two cancelled flights and one cancelled train. Been on the road for 12 hours, seen two airports, lots of railway stations and still can’t get to Scotland.
I now have to accept I will not make the Scottish Cup tie tomorrow, but if the roads through Glasgow are as clear as I hear, I never had a thought the game would be cancelled. If stadiums, access areas and trunk roads are clear, football will go ahead at all Scottish Cup games this weekend. No matter how inconvenient it is for me.
Morton chairman Warren Hawke wants the game postponed to protect supporters’ “life and limb”. It is nothing to do with the fact his players have not run the length of themselves all week. Meanwhile Kilmarnock fans will travel to Aberdeen, confident in returning with approximately the same limb count.
You can be 100% sure Brendan Rodgers wants the game to go ahead. He wants Morton now and doesn’t want a second game cancelled before Ibrox. That being the case, it will happen.
This is a tough one to sit out. The Scottish Cup means lots, this season’s more than most, but thems the breaks.
