Livingston vs Aberdeen postponed as plastic pitch freezes

Livingston’s Scottish Premiership game at home to Aberdeen has been postponed after the artificial pitch at the Tony Macaroni Arena froze.

Livingston says club staff had worked on the pitch for around a day and a half but were unable to prevent the plastic surface from freezing due to the cold conditions in the area.

Images shared on social media show masses of snow piled up around the stadium, with the frozen pitch cleared.

In a statement on Twitter, Livingston said: “Despite the very best efforts of all the club staff over the last 36 or so hours, today’s game with Aberdeen has fallen victim of the freezing conditions and has been postponed.
