Philippe Clément Frustrated as Rangers Game Postponed Again Due to Waterlogged Pitch

The Belgian climate has accustomed Philippe Clément to waterlogged terrain. But seeing a match postponed for the second time on the same day remains very painful.

When this match between Dundee FC and the Glasgow Rangers will it end up playing out? And or ? At present, these questions are still unanswered for Philippe Clément. However, the meeting was supposed to take place on March 17.

But the heavy rains had taken their toll on the local terrain. Clément did not hold back from criticizing the quality of the infrastructure. He especially regretted the last minute decision, when the whole team had already arrived on site.

The Belgian coach experienced the same mishap today. While the match was to be played this evening, new downpours left the pitch in an impassable state. Rangers must once again return to Glasgow empty-handed.

Rangers game falls through again

“30% of their home matches have been postponed this season. I don’t remember anything like this in 30 years of football in Europe, so it’s a big problem,” said Philippe Clement at a press conference.

The height? Barely 300 meters from the grounds of Dundee FC stands the lawn of neighboring Dundee United, which is in excellent condition. Enough to spark the idea of ​​playing the match behind closed doors if the initial pitch is wet again during the third handover date.

“If we have to play behind closed doors, we will. If they ask us to play on Mars, we will go to Mars to take the three points” laughed Philippe Clément. Be careful though, this could give ideas to FIFA.
