Old Firm derby between Rangers and Celtic postponed due to coronavirus

The Old Firm derby between Rangers and Celtic has been suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak, as all domestic and grassroots football in Scotland is off . Premier League and EFL have postponed the games until April 3 and the SPFL swiftly followed suit, ending the possibility of the latest Old Firm, scheduled for Sunday afternoon at Ibrox, going ahead. The Joint Response Group announced the decision to postpone all matches 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," it read. "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." Source- Daily Mail
