Scottish Premiership games postponed due to heavy snowfall

All three of Wednesday's Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership games have been postponed because of heavy snowfall.

The Scottish Professional Football League made an early decision and there were no objections from the six clubs involved.

Celtic were due to host Dundee, Hibernian and Hamilton were scheduled to meet at Easter Road and Aberdeen have been spared a trip to Motherwell in dangerous conditions.

The SPFL posted on Twitter: "Due to the severe weather, tonight's games in the Ladbrokes Premiership have been postponed."

An amber weather warning is in place for much of Scotland, with police advising people not to travel.

An SPFL statement read: "Following consultation and advice received from the clubs involved, Police Scotland and Traffic Scotland, the SPFL have decided to postpone the above matches in the interest of safety.

"We will contact the clubs to reschedule these fixtures at a later date."
