Congratulations to Rangers on reaching the UEFA Cup final...
After beating Forentina on penalties in the 2nd leg of the Semi-Final last night, Walter Smith`s side will now face Zenit St Petersburg in the final on the 14th of May.
However, Ranger`s success in the UEFA Cup has had an unfortunate ripple effect on the league, as a fixture pile-up has resulted in a controversial extension to the SPL season.
Usually Dundee United would support another Scottish club in Europe, but for some reason the club have openly criticised the decision to extend the season, on the basis that it will effect gate receipts.
Perhaps Dundee United have some financial problems, or maybe it`s just United trying to vent their anger and frustration at the way Rangers beat them in the CIS Cup Final earlier in the campaign.
There have already been some Rangers supporters calling for Dundee United`s match at Ibrox on the 10th of May to be postponed, to allow the Gers more time to prepare for their UEFA Cup final in Manchester on the 14th.
However, this is unlikely to happen, since it would mean extending the season even further, as Rangers have no other mid-weeks or weekends free until the 22nd of May.
The only change to Dundee United`s remaining fixtures, is that game against Celtic at Tannadice has been moved to from Sunday the 18th to Thursday the 22nd of May.
