There's confusion tonight at Rangers.

:00:13.:00:14.

Manager Mark Warburton has said he remains in post,

:00:15.:00:16.

despite the club saying they've accepted his resignation.

:00:17.:00:18.

The club are set to play Morton in the Scottish Cup

:00:19.:00:20.

on Sunday, after a number of disappointing results.

:00:21.:00:22.

Our chief football reporter Chris McLaughlin has the details.

:00:23.:00:32.

This is it say police. In the past hour, Rangers released a statement

:00:33.:00:39.

saying Rangers has accepted the resignation of manager Mike

:00:40.:00:42.

Warburton, the assistant manager and the head of recruitment. It goes on

:00:43.:00:47.

to explain that all three were notified that their resignations

:00:48.:00:51.

were accepted after the club agreed to waive a buyout clause. Now, it

:00:52.:00:56.

gets bizarre because the Rangers' manager spoke to me in the past half

:00:57.:01:00.

an hour and said that this statement is news to him and as far as he is

:01:01.:01:06.

concerned, he has not resigned as the manager. Now, his time as both

:01:07.:01:11.

at Ibrox has not been happy in recent weeks. The results have not

:01:12.:01:15.

been good. This looks as though it has been coming but this looks to be

:01:16.:01:19.

something of a mess. The one thing that is clear is that Mike

:01:20.:01:24.

Warburton's time in charge of Rangers is over.

:01:25.:01:25.

ScottishPower has become the latest of the big six energy companies

:01:26.:01:28.

It will mean an increase of nearly 11% for electricity

:01:29.:01:32.

The price rises come into effect at the end of March.

:01:33.:01:37.

But this morning, Scottish Gas said it was freezing prices until August.

:01:38.:01:40.

From dawn till dusk and right through the night,

:01:41.:01:45.

the energy that powers Scotland and on which we all depend,

:01:46.:01:50.

the news that ScottishPower will soon raise its prices for

:01:51.:01:53.

electricity and gas will not be welcomed.

:01:54.:01:56.

The company says it has been absorbing higher external costs

:01:57.:01:59.

for months and now it is passing them on to its customers.

:02:00.:02:04.

Something to think about next time they stick on the kettle.

:02:05.:02:07.

About 1.1 million of them will pay more.

:02:08.:02:10.

On average, 10.8% for electricity and 4.7% for gas

:02:11.:02:15.

and those on dual fuel deals will see rises of 7.8%.

:02:16.:02:20.

The company says two thirds of customers will not be affected

:02:21.:02:23.

because they are already on cheaper fixed-price deals.

:02:24.:02:26.

The energy companies buy gas and electricity

:02:27.:02:37.

wholesale in advance and in theory customer bills should reflect lower

:02:38.:02:41.

We saw big falls in the price of wholesale energy

:02:42.:02:47.

through 2014 and 2015 that were probably not reflected

:02:48.:02:50.

particularly in the big six standard tariffs

:02:51.:02:53.

as opposed to the best deals in the market.

:02:54.:03:02.

There was much more activity with them.

:03:03.:03:04.

We do see increases in non-energy charges, so charges for the grid,

:03:05.:03:08.

wires and renewable subsidies and so on

:03:09.:03:11.

and they are features of stopping prices falling so far.

:03:12.:03:14.

With npower also raising prices recently,

:03:15.:03:16.

their customers may feel the chill.

:03:17.:03:24.

We know a third of households in Scotland

:03:25.:03:28.

It is not cheap to heat your home any more

:03:29.:03:40.

and any increase in the price will be a worry for people.

:03:41.:03:43.

Energy price rises can seem particularly cruel

:03:44.:03:45.

says it is freezing its prices until August.

:03:46.:03:50.

John McManus, Reporting Scotland, Edinburgh.

:03:51.:03:54.

Andy Murray's management team have expressed concern

:03:55.:03:56.

about the prices that tickets for his charity event at the Hydro

:03:57.:03:59.

Tickets for his exhibition match are being sold

:04:00.:04:05.

for up to ten times their face value on reseller sites.

:04:06.:04:08.

Yesterday in London, the man himself was there

:04:09.:04:11.

It's an exhibition match for charity, with Roger Federer.

:04:12.:04:22.

one of the selling points was the ticket price.

:04:23.:04:25.

10,800 tickets will go on sale today,

:04:26.:04:27.

with over half of all of those seats just ?25,

:04:28.:04:29.

making the event very accessible for all.

:04:30.:04:31.

But today those tickets were selling

:04:32.:04:32.

The digital age makes it more of a problem,

:04:33.:04:37.

because professional touts use computer programmes

:04:38.:04:40.

to buy up large numbers of tickets

:04:41.:04:43.

to sports and entertainment events.

:04:44.:04:46.

I have not done it and I don't think I ever would.

:04:47.:04:52.

I think it is a bit unfair on the artist

:04:53.:04:54.

and it is just some secondary guy making a big buck.

:04:55.:04:58.

I missed out on some and I had a look

:04:59.:05:01.

and thought I cannot afford that.

:05:02.:05:03.

If there is a band that you want to see, I will have a look.

:05:04.:05:14.

we will pay whatever is left in our wallet.

:05:15.:05:19.

Artists like Adele and Elton John have both come out

:05:20.:05:22.

against the websites that sell at inflated prices.

:05:23.:05:23.

Elton John said he would rather have empty seats.

:05:24.:05:26.

The resale of football tickets is banned.

:05:27.:05:27.

But the reselling of live music tickets is not.

:05:28.:05:30.

It is a very complex issue, it would be nice if the government

:05:31.:05:35.

would take some legislation against it,

:05:36.:05:37.

but I don't think that will happen.

:05:38.:05:44.

if the public just voted with their feet and just said,

:05:45.:05:49.

we're not paying the inflated prices,

:05:50.:05:51.

we will definitely not buy secondary tickets

:05:52.:05:52.

at five times over the face value, we will not go to the gig.

:05:53.:05:56.

The Fanfare Alliance, which campaigns for better laws,

:05:57.:06:00.

says wait until nearer the date

:06:01.:06:02.

It's another big weekend of sport,

:06:03.:06:08.

and in rugby it's the Six Nations round two.

:06:09.:06:10.

Scotland are playing their first away match

:06:11.:06:12.

of this year's competition against France.

:06:13.:06:16.

Our sports reporter David Currie is in Paris

:06:17.:06:18.

to look ahead to Sunday's big game.

:06:19.:06:20.

Take a moment to savour the city of love.

:06:21.:06:27.

This is one of the city's most famous

:06:28.:06:34.

and controversial buildings, it is the Pompidou Centre

:06:35.:06:36.

and this year it elebrates its 40th anniversary.

:06:37.:06:41.

And in all the time that this building has been open,

:06:42.:06:43.

Scotland have only won twice in Paris.

:06:44.:06:52.

It is still Scotland with the chance!

:06:53.:06:53.

Every time we go across, we are always written off.

:06:54.:06:58.

We were always playing second fiddle.

:06:59.:07:01.

We went across there and I always remember, a bright sunny day

:07:02.:07:09.

everyone thought we were just there for cannon fodder.

:07:10.:07:11.

That's a long time and hopefully that

:07:12.:07:14.

Scotland beat the French last year at Murrayfield.

:07:15.:07:17.

Getting the better of them on their home soil

:07:18.:07:19.

I believe that this is the game will set the Six Nations alight.

:07:20.:07:25.

We have seen and heard the noises coming out of their camp.

:07:26.:07:31.

La vie, or life, is certainly rosy for these Scottish rugby fans.

:07:32.:07:48.

Travelling hopefully and looking for another famous win.

:07:49.:07:50.

It keeps us in line for the Grand Slam.

:07:51.:07:53.

Not counting our cards yet, but hopeful.

:07:54.:07:55.

Confidence is high, lot of skill level, really exciting times.

:07:56.:08:01.

Even a Frenchman with a heart of stone

:08:02.:08:04.

is open to the romantic possibility of another Scottish win.

:08:05.:08:16.

Well, it's time for the weather outlook for tonight and tomorrow.

:08:17.:08:37.

Thank you. Good evening. It is a cold one tonight and for some,

:08:38.:08:44.

wintry. There is a mate of this year will be aware warning in force

:08:45.:08:48.

covering the borders, Lothian and the capital. We have seen some rain

:08:49.:08:53.

and snow moving in overnight. Some accumulations not only on high

:08:54.:08:55.

ground but occasionally lower accumulations not only on high

:08:56.:08:58.

levels. Elsewhere largely dry but it will be cold, a cold start to

:08:59.:09:02.

tomorrow. Across the south east, fairly miserable for most. Cloudy,

:09:03.:09:07.

wait, these low-level rising into the hills but expect some sleet to

:09:08.:09:11.

lower levels at times. Across the UK as a whole, fairly cloudy and cold.

:09:12.:09:15.

This little troughs bringing some outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow

:09:16.:09:28.

across parts of the North of England, into the Midlands. The best

:09:29.:09:31.

of the weather across the West of Scotland, Northern Ireland as well.

:09:32.:09:34.

And it will be a cold day. Add on a strong north-easterly, a better feel

:09:35.:09:36.

through the central belt and sites. Brightest in the north-west. Into

:09:37.:09:38.

the evening, those outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow slowly edging

:09:39.:09:40.

away as westwards into Lanarkshire, Stirlingshire and Moray as well. For

:09:41.:09:42.

Sunday, high pressure still in charge. Size of the border, still

:09:43.:09:46.

cloudy with outbreak of rain and food. For us, cloudy, largely dry.

:09:47.:09:48.

Wintry showers at times and cold. From everyone on the late team

:09:49.:09:51.

here in Glasgow

:09:52.:09:56.
