A pitch inspection is set to take place at Fir Park

Four matches in Scotland have been postponed due to the cold weather.

Aberdeen's trip to face Kilmarnock at Rugby Park in the SPL is off, while Ross County v Dunfermline in the Division One is also postponed.

In the Scottish Cup, Lochee United v Ayr and Edinburgh City v Brechin are off while Forfar v Stranraer has been rearranged for Monday at 1945 GMT.

A pitch inspection is set to take place at Fir Park for Motherwell v Hearts in the Scottish Premier League.

Kilmarnock's Rugby Park surface failed a 1000GMT inspection, which was called on Friday afternoon.

It remains unclear if the problem was caused by a frozen or waterlogged pitch or if there were issues with the undersoil heating.

Aberdeen, whose players and fans faced a four-hour journey to get to the game, were unhappy with the timing of the inspection.

Forfar's Scottish Cup clash with Stranraer will now be played on Monday with a 1945 kick-off.

The victors taking on the winners of Saturday's rearranged tie between Forres Mechanics and Dalbeattie Star.
