The St Mirren vs Celtic tie WILL go ahead on Wednesday according to reports.
The Paisley side have a substantial covid outbreak in their ranks and had to suspend training at the weekend over fears it could spread to the whole squad.
Despite that, SunSport is reporting the game is set to go ahead with the buddies still having the numbers to field a squad of players.
The paper claims the St Mirren board have been reluctant to have the game postponed.
Money is probably a large reason behind the move. Things are precarious in Scotland when it comes to the pandemic and there’s nothing off the table at the moment. While fans are still allowed into the ground, St Mirren obviously feel the best financial decision is to host the game and make sure they get the gate receipt from Celtic fans.
If the game was to get postponed and then replayed at a later date when fans might not be allowed into the ground, it would mean refunding tickets for the match.
It’s a sorry state of affairs that thinking must come into things. It’s where we’re at and with so much uncertainty St Mirren want the show to go on.
The game is scheduled for Wednesday night with a 19:45KO.
