Livingston issue statement regarding Celtic fixture situation in wake of Queen's death

Livingston have issued a club statement in response to queries regarding the possible postponement of their match at Celtic Park in the cinch Scottish Premiership on Saturday.

The death of Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday has led to a number of sporting cancellations across the UK, including one fixture so far in the SPFL, with the cinch Championship between Cove Rangers and Dundee scheduled for Friday night already called off.

It is anticipated that the rest of Scottish football will be shutdown as a mark of respect, but it remains unclear whether any postponements will affect this weekend’s fixtures, or the following weekend, when the Queen’s funeral is expected to take place, or both.
