ROVERS TO SWITCH CELTIC CUP-TIE

0

ALBION ROVERS are considering a change of venue for their Scottish Cup fourth round tie against Celtic due to safety concerns.

The League One outfit secured a bumper fixture against Brendan Rodgers’ treble-chasing outfit on Monday night after their shock 2-1 victory over Championship side Queen of the South.

Calum Ferguson’s stoppage-time winner booked 10-man Rovers a lucrative encounter against the Hoops on January 21, but club chairman Ronnie Boyd has admitted a change of venue is being considered.

Boyd is concerned that the Coatbridge side’s Cliftonhill ground doesn’t meet safety standards and revealed that a switch to Motherwell’s Fir Park or Hamilton Accies’ New Douglas Park is being considered.

He said: “They have to be options. We would love to play it here, but we have to look at the safety of the fans.”
