KELTY Hearts have hit out at the SFA after their testimonial match with Rangers was postponed due to the Glasgow giants not being granted a licence to play.
The Stefan Winiarski Testimonial Match was due to take place this Wednesday at Central Park. The Kelty veteran was set to donate 10 per cent of the gate money to the Rangers Fans Fighting Fund.
The game has been postponed due to the SFA not granting Rangers a licence to play any matches, friendlies or competitive matches.
However, Rangers have assured Kelty that the game will still go ahead at a later date.
A Kelty club spokesman said, "Programmes have been printed, food ordered, marquee for hospitality etc. The licence situation is having a negative impact on not only the top end of Scottish football but the lower end also.
"We are all gutted with all the work done sending tickets out, money spent and time put in by the volunteers to make the night a great one. As you can imagine Stefan is also sick at this outcome.
"Rangers have instructed us that an alternative date will be arranged very soon so all tickets and hospitality tickets are still valid for the match."
