Polish referees withdraw help

Polish referees withdraw help

A late withdrawal of Polish replacement referees has hit the Scottish Football Associations plans to deal with a referees' strike this weekend.

Having arranged for three sets of officials to come across from Poland and other countries the SFA believed they had rescued eleven of the scheduled twenty Scottish fixtures.

However, the Polish SFA has now said their referees are in fact required in their own country.

Even so the SFA remains confident it can still cover ten matches and confirmed all six SPL matches will definitely go ahead as planned.

But this latest news has resulted in the postponement of the Morton v Falkirk clash at Cappielow Park, which took the number of games cancelled in Divisions One, Two and Three to ten.

The Scottish Cup tie between Annan Athletic and Brechin City was later postponed after a failed pitch inspection.

Deila delighted with display

Ronny Deila was delighted by the performance as Celtic effectively wrapped up a fifth successive league title with a 3-1 victory at Hearts.

Celtic virtually seal title

Celtic are so close to a fifth straight league title following a 3-1 victory at Hearts.

Striker Colin Kazim-Richards earned them an early lead cancelled out by Abiola Dauda after the break.

However, Patrick Roberts and Leigh Griffiths later seized upon defensive slips to both restore and extend the advantage respectively.

The Hoops had the ball in the net on twelve minutes through Callum McGregor after Neil Alexander parried from Roberts. But an offside flag was raised.
