"I have been contacted by a number of members frustrated at the sudden capacity cut, and I can fully understand that frustration.
"Stranraer FC obviously asked the council for a figure and that has been done but I know that supporters have been taken aback somewhat by what is basically a 50 per cent cut in capacity.
"There is talk of moving the Rangers matches to another ground but clearly local fans I have spoken to understandably do not want that to happen.
"Such a move may redress the potential loss of income for the club, which is important but playing these matches elsewhere will do nothing for the town itself.
"The Rangers games will be a boost to the Stranraer economy, which it badly needs and it would be a real blow to lose these high profile matches from Stair Park or to see them played in front of just 3000 people."
