Ally McCoist: Postponement was the correct decision

Ally McCoist: Postponement was the correct decision

The Ibrox club had arrived at Ochilview seeking a 21st successive victory.

But the match was called off when the extreme weather conditions battered Scotland for most of the day.

Heavy downpours also caused flooding outside the ground and the decision to cancel the match was made just two hours before the scheduled 5.30pm kick-off.

McCoist said: "It was 100 per-cent the right decision.

"It would be farcical to try and play the game in those conditions because safety is of paramount importance in these situations.

"It's not just fans in the stadium, it's also fans travelling to the game as well that you have to consider, so for all these reasons the correct decision has been made."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
