Celtic Game In Serious Doubt

Morton's Scottish cup tie versus Celtic has virtually no chance of going ahead this Saturday. The Cappielow pitch is frozen solid, and weather forecasts suggest that the freezing cold conditions are set to continue for the forseeable future.

Ton Groundsman Mark Farrell told the Evening Times' Thomas Jordan that he doubts the pitch will be playable: “It looks as though there is going to be one winner this weekend – and that’s the weather. The pitch is frozen solid.”

If the match is postponed this Saturday then it will be rescheduled for Tuesday, 12 January with a 7.45pm kick-off. I've heard that Wednesday, 20 January has been pencilled in as an option if the pitch is also unplayable on the Tuesday. The SFA have confirmed that this date has definitely been set aside for a replay at Celtic Park.
