Matches postponed amid Red Weather Warning extension

Games called off in the interests of safety

The Scottish Professional Football League has confirmed that several games scheduled for this weekend have been postponed following significant weather warnings for much of the country.

The SPFL has been in discussions with clubs, Police Scotland and relevant authorities on the developing situation and after the red weather warning issued for Tayside, Aberdeenshire and Angus earlier today, it has postponed matches in the interests of safety.  

Calum Beattie, SPFL chief operating officer, said: “We have been in close contact with Police Scotland and our clubs and it’s clear that we continue to face very severe weather, particularly in the North East, in the coming days.

“We never postpone any matches lightly, but our discussions with the emergency services left us in no doubt that this was the correct decision.”

The matches postponed across the SPFL are:

cinch Premiership
Aberdeen v Dundee 
Ross County v St Mirren
St Johnstone v Motherwell

cinch Championship
Arbroath v Raith Rovers
Greenock Morton v Inverness Caledonian Thistle

cinch League 1
Cove Rangers v Montrose

cinch League 2

The SPFL will continue to monitor the situation involving remaining fixtures across the country, and new dates for the postponed fixtures will be announced in due course.
