THERE will be no football in the North of Scotland this weekend, not even for Ross County and Caley Thistle in the only two leagues not currently suspended.

County's Global Energy Stadium pitch and Jags' Caledonian Stadium surface both failed Friday afternoon inspections for their Saturday fixtures.

The wintry snap has decimated the football programme across Scotland.

While Leagues One and Two and all pyramid divisions await the go-ahead to return to fixtures when Covid restrictions are eased, it's the weather that's biting hard in the only leagues still in action.

Ross County's Premiership game at home to Hibernian was called off after a Friday afternoon inspection in Dingwall.

Similarly, Inverness was under a blanket of snow and Caley Thistle's Championship clash against Morton also failed a 1.30pm inspection on the eve of the match.

It's a similar story in Fife, where Dunfermline's match against Dundee, and Raith Rovers' meeting with Ayr United were both called off on Friday.
