EXCLUSIVE: Fraserburgh Scottish Cup tie with Rangers WILL be held at Bellslea and is set to be shown on Sky Sports

Fraserburgh’s Scottish Cup tie with Rangers will be played at Bellslea and is set to be shown live on television.

The Broch were paired with the Gers in the fourth round of the cup and it is understood the match will be played on Sunday, January 21, so it can be beamed live.

It is also understood Sky Sports will broadcast the game which will net the Buchan club £32,500.

This sum is significantly less than last season due to changes in the way TV cash and prize money are distributed.

Previously clubs received £82,500 if their game was chosen for live TV coverage.

Representatives from Sky, who will show two fourth round matches live, were in the North-east last week to look at Bellslea and also to look for accommodation for their staff covering the clash.

It is also understood that Bellslea will be deemed suitable to host the game.

Fraserburgh have publicly expressed their desire to have the tie at their own ground and their wishes will be met.

Temporary stands will be brought in by the Broch to try to maximise the attendance.
