Travel giant Thomas Cook has plunged into chaos after ceasing trading - leaving football fans around the UK in limbo.

Rangers supporters who purchased packages to get to the likes of Porto and Switzerland where their side will face Young Boys face an anxious wait to see if they'll make the Europa League matches.

Hundreds of thousands of Brits have been stranded abroad after confirmation from the airline that they'd been liquidated this morning.

And the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool have been forced to update supporters with information regarding contingency plans for those who may already have purchased travel packages - as well as hospitality for home matches.

A statement from Manchester United said: "We were sad to hear the news regarding Thomas Cook and the impact this will have on its customers and employees. 

"Along with other Premier league clubs, Thomas Cook Sports have been travel partners with Manchester United. 

"They have pre-sold a small number of tickets and hospitality for some home matches this season, along with travel packages to two upcoming UEFA Europa League away games. 

"As soon as we were aware of their potential insolvency, we started to work through contingency plans and we will endeavour to contact affected Manchester United fans who had booked direct via Thomas Cook." 

Liverpool FC also wrote: "We are aware Thomas Cook has ceased trading this morning. Thomas Cook sells 360 hospitality packages for each of our home games at Anfield.

"We are currently assessing the impact of Thomas Cook ceasing trading and the impact for those supporters who have purchased packages from Thomas Cook. 

"Once we have those details from Thomas Cook we will update supporters."

Chelsea, Tottenham, Everton and Rangers are yet to publicly address the Thomas Cook situation but they have all been approached for comment by Herald Sport. All clubs were listed on the Thomas Cook Sport website as a travel partner. 

Meanwhile, Scottish Rugby fans have been given somewhat of a reprieve as the World Cup in Japan was exempt from using Thomas Cook as their official travel partners.

Scottish Rugby does have a partnership with the travel giants but it is understood World Cup arrangements had no involvement with Thomas Cook.

Other European giants like FC Barcelona and Real Madrid also had a connection with Thomas Cook.

Neither have yet to comment.
