Jack Frost has more success than striking Referees as SPL games called off


Last weekend, Scottish referees tried to cause chaos within the Scottish game as they all got a petted lip and went on strike. Despite trying to make sure that everyone knew that football in this country could not continue without them, the SFA shipped in foreign refs to cross the picket lines. But now it seems that Jack Frost has shown the referees how to do it, as all SPL games have been called off.

All six games scheduled for this weekend in the SPL have been postponed due to the horrendous weather that has battered Scotland for the past week.

An Scottish Premier League statement said, “In light of the severe weather conditions across Scotland, which are forecast to continue for some time, all Clydesdale Bank Premier League games have been postponed this Saturday, December 4. It is hoped that this early notice of postponement, whilst disappointing, will allow everyone to plan accordingly. New dates for the fixtures will be announced in due course.”

SPL fixtures called off: Inverness CT v Rangers, Celtic v Kilmarnock, Dundee Utd v Motherwell, Hamilton v Hibernian, Hearts v Aberdeen, St Mirren v St Johnstone.

In the Scottish Football League most of the games have been called off also, but Alloa’s home tie with Peterhead in the Second Division is still in with a chance of beating the weather. An announcement will be made by Alloa on Friday.
