Giovanni van Bronckhorst: Rangers were against moving winter break

Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst revealed that the club was against moving the winter break forward but respect the decision to do so. Rangers and Ross County were the only two teams that voted against moving the winter break forward after the Scottish government limited attendance to sporting events to 500. The Scottish Professional league decided to go ahead with the Boxing Day fixtures but move the next two game weeks to next month.

“We heard the news that Boxing Day was only 500 people.” Rangers boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst said. “Of course, the decision to move the winter break after Boxing Day, I think we were clear as a club – we had our arguments and our standing point in playing on. But the decision is made by the board and by the league so we respect the decision and we move forward.”

“We’re concentrating on the game on Sunday against St Mirren. After that, we’ll have time with our families and to rest and then we start again in January to prepare ourselves for the second half of the season,” he added. “Of course, you want to have all your players available but you also know that sometimes the international calendar is not synchronized with the league. It’s just the way it is. We have to take it as it comes and play the game with 11 players and seven players on the bench, but it’s just the way it is. So frustration, for me, is not a good word. It’s just handling the situation as it comes.”
