Rangers FC opposes UEFA. I want to commemorate Elizabeth II

Rangers FC will play today at their own stadium from Napoli. Before the match, the Scots asked UEFA whether they could play the national anthem before the match as part of the commemoration of Elizabeth II. The decision of the European federation was negative. The Rangers are not going to accept this veto and will do what they set out to do.

Other British clubs – Manchester City (playing with BVB) and Chelsea (playing with Salzburg) came to UEFA with a similar request. The European federation did not agree to the proposed idea, guided by its policy that forbids playing national anthems during Champions League matches. UEFA does not provide for any exceptions to this rule – even in the event of such important events as the death of the queen.

“Glasgow Times” and “Daily Mail” report that the Rangers, despite the negative decision, will commemorate with the song “God Save The King” recently deceased Elizabeth II. The Queen will also be honored with a minute of silence. It is possible that in such a scenario, the Scots will have to face the consequences.

Due to preparations for the funeral of Elizabeth II, the Napoli Rangers’ meeting, which was originally scheduled to take place yesterday, has been postponed by one day. For this reason, the entire seventh round of the Premier League was also postponed.

Queen Elizabeth died on September 8 at the age of 96. She spent seven decades on the throne.
