ALL five Premiership games scheduled for tomorrow have now been called off. Further snow overnight in many parts of the country fell on top of pitches which in some cases were already frozen.

It is the second weekend running that the full card in the top flight has fallen victim to the weather. Decisions on revised dates will be taken in due course.

With no matches due to be played on Christmas Eve or Hogmanay, the Premiership is next in action on Saturday 7 January, 2023.
