Royalists’ glamour game hangs in balance

DOUBTS surround Saturday’s proposed pre-season friendly between Hawick Royal Albert and Rangers.

Talks between the troubled Glasgow club and the Scottish Foorball Association are continuing with a view to Ally McCoist’s men obtaining a licence to play.

And without the licence the weekend’s glamour match at Albert Park can’t go ahead.

Although Albert officials remain confident it will be played, those at Ibrox are more pessimistic although they have stressed, if cancelled, the game would be rearranged for a later date.
