A bit of sense prevailed, for once, when the coronavirus pandemic finally won, and Scotland’s FA and the SPFL came together to suspend the rest of the season, until further notice.

The Joint Response Group said in a statement: “The Joint Response Group can confirm the decision of the Scottish FA Board to suspend ALL domestic professional and grassroots football under the jurisdiction of the Scottish FA until further notice.

”As a result, the SPFL has announced the postponement of this weekend’s and following midweek’s fixtures, starting with tonight’s Premiership match between Motherwell and Aberdeen and the Championship match between Queen of the South and Ayr United.

”The Scottish FA and SPFL will continue to liaise with governments and UEFA in relation to domestic, European and International fixtures in the coming days and more information will be communicated at the appropriate time.

”The Scottish FA Board made its decision in the interests of the health and safety of players, match officials, staff, supporters and the general public.”

So, what now ? The season’s been suspended for the forseeable future. There’s no word on when it will resume again either.

No one knows. Not even me, the king of predictions.

Until I am leaked more info from the TOP BEAKS, let’s just give us the trophy anyway and the Scottish Cup as well because we’d have won that anyway.
