- Players sign petition calling for end to synthetic turf
- Gerrard: ‘My opinion is that players are safer on grass’
Rangers manager Steven Gerrard says it is time the Scottish Professional Football League started listening to its players and outlawed “dangerous” plastic pitches.
Union chiefs from PFA Scotland have revealed a petition signed by every player from the nine top-flight clubs with grass surfaces demanding synthetic turf is banned in the Scottish Premiership. The move is set to be fiercely resisted by the three top-flight clubs who play on plastic – Kilmarnock, Hamilton and Livingston – but Gerrard’s views will not shift.
