Rangers bosses have warned supporters of disruption as massive floods hit Scotland.

Met Office bosses issued an Amber warning earlier today saying that there was a 'danger to life' given the downpour in some areas.

The body has put an amber warning in place for rain for southern and western Scotland - with up to 100mm expected to fall over an 18-hour period from 9pm tonight.

Forecasters say that the heaviest of the rainfall is expected to clear from mid-morning on Thursday.

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) has also issued flood alerts for the Scottish Borders, Dumfries and Galloway and West Central Scotland.

Pictures of flooded streets have surfaced around the country after it was hit with a deluge of rain today.

Now Ibrox chiefs have warned supporters of the wild weather ahead of tonight's clash with Aberdeen.

Gers Supporters Liaison Officer Greg Marshall tweeted: "A number of roads around the stadium footprint have been severely impacted by flooding.


"We are working with the Glasgow City Council to resolve this issue. Please allow extra time to get to Ibrox this evening."

The city's GlasGLOW festival have also cancelled their show tonight - just hours before it was due to take place.

Organisers have confirmed the popular show will not take place today after heavy flooding blocked the entrance to the Botanic Gardens.

Bosses said the decision is "outwith their control" and all ticket holders will be offered a full refund.

Widespread flooding has been reported across Scotland's biggest city with roads flooded in the likes of the city's Kirkliston and Drumchapel.

Videos on social media have also shown cars allegedly trapped in water on Great Western Road.

In conditions like this, where possible, if the road is flooded turn around and find another route.

Outside the city there has also been widespread disruption in Kilmarnock and parts of Fife.

Earlier today we reported how Paisley has been plunged into "monsoon-like" conditions this afternoon with heavy rainfall hitting parts of Renfrewshire.

One man, who got caught in the downpour while driving, said: "It was quite a downpour just before 4pm and came down in minutes.

"Drains were blocked, roads flooded and driving conditions were treacherous.

"It was like monsoon conditions for a while and couldn't have come down any heavier if it tried. It seems like the drains couldn't cope."

Linwood Toll Roundabout, near Aldi, often overflows in particularly wet weather and this afternoon was no different - as our pictures show.

The Met Office forecast for Strathclyde today says: "Persistent rain, occasionally heavy, developing across the south and east overnight.

"A mainly dry night across the north with the odd shower along the west coast. Mild. Minimum temperature 11 °C."

Met Office chief meteorologist Paul Gundersen, said “The rain is likely to become more showery and less persistent, albeit still heavy at times, during Thursday night and perhaps Friday morning, with a separate warning still in force at that time.

“These amounts of rainfall present a real threat of flooding and people should keep a close eye on flood warnings from the Environment Agency, Natural Resources Wales and SEPA.

"There may be some disruption to transport, with some difficult driving conditions and possible road closures. Stay up to date with the forecast in your area on the Met Office website or via our mobile app.”
