Ticket-holders for yesterday’s posptoned SPFL match at Ochilview will be able to gain entry to the re-arranged game between Martyn Corrigan and Ally McCoist’s sides.

The match was called off shortly after 3 p.m. with kick-off moved to 5.30 p.m. to accomodate TV cameras from BT Sport.

The safety decision was taken after wind and rain lashed Ochilview making for precarious conditions for supporters travelling to the game and for cameramen on the scaffold gantry.

A re-arranged date has not yet been discussed, but neither Rangers nor Stenhousemuir have the February date being discussed by Falkirk and Queen of the South available as both are still involved in this season’s Scottish Cup.

Falkirk’s game at Dumfries was abandoned after 26 minutes.

Tickets for yesterday’s League One game will be valid for the re-arranged date, but that will not be February 8 as Rangers face Dunfermline and the Warriors head to Albion Rovers in the Scottish Cup.

A statement on Stenhousemuir’s club website said: “The tickets for today’s game will remain valid for the re-arranged fixture which has yet to be scheduled. The new date will apppear here as soon as it becomes known.”
