Grounds people try to clear the Livingston pitch of water
Efforts to dry out the pitch ultimately proved unsuccessful as heavy rain continued to fall

Livingston’s match with Aberdeen has been postponed 10 minutes after the game was scheduled to kick off at the Tony Macaroni Arena.

Efforts to clear the pitch of puddles amid heavy rain ensued while the players were warming up.

Referee Steven McLean had a long conversation with both managers before taking the decision to postpone.

The Scottish Premiership fixture was previously postponed hours before kick-off on 30 December amid cold weather.

Both clubs are scheduled to play away from home on Saturday, with Livingston visiting Celtic and Aberdeen taking on hosts Ross County.

Livi are then due to host Celtic next Wednesday and both clubs have fixtures on the weekend of 23/24 January and on the evening of 27 January, meaning it could be more than two weeks until Livingston v Aberdeen can be played.
