‘Well boss Stuart McCall cut a frustrated figure after learning tonight’s match with Rapid Bucharest would have to be cancelled due to adverse weather.
The Steelmen were to take on Romanians Rapid București at the Grangemouth Stadium near Falkirk but the pitch there was unable to cope with the recent deluge or rain.
The game will be rescheduled for tomorrow behind closed doors and fans can get their ticket money back, but McCall couldn’t hide his disappointment.
[pullquote]Even at Dalziel, we wouldn’t have got a full pitch otherwise we’d just have had a bounce game there amongst ourselves.[/pullquote]
He said: “We were hoping that with the game being called off on Saturday (Rapid București versus Livingston) that the park had been in a good enough state to carry on but unfortunately not.
“We’ve got a little back-up plan and will actually play them again tomorrow behind closed doors but it is disappointing the game is off tonight.
“The lads will be disappointed I’m sure but at least we’ve managed to get it on tomorrow.
“Even at Dalziel, we wouldn’t have got a full pitch otherwise we’d just have had a bounce game there amongst ourselves. Hopefully it will stay dry tonight and the lads will get at least 45 minutes under their belt tomorrow.”
