THE SPFL and Scottish FA have confirmed professional fixtures will resume as normal this weekend.

Matches were postponed last weekend as a mark of respect after the Queen's death.

Now, it's been confirmed fixtures will return this coming weekend - subject to Police Scotland resourcing.

One caveat to the fixtures return is that any match scheduled for Monday, September 19 - the same date as Her Majesty's funeral - will be rescheduled.

The joint statement from the league governing body and Scottish FA also stated clubs may wish to hold a minute's silence and/or play the national anthem ahead of kick-off and have players wear black armbands.

The Scottish FA and SPFL statement confirmed: "Following confirmation of the postponement of all fixtures in the professional game across Scotland last weekend as a mark of respect for the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, we can confirm the intention for the professional game to resume as normal.

"Fixtures will go ahead, subject to Police Scotland resourcing, with the caveat that any fixtures under the professional banner be rescheduled if they fall on Monday September 19, the day of Her Majesty’s funeral.

"This week, as a mark of respect and in keeping with the period of National Mourning, home clubs may wish to hold a period of silence and/or play the National Anthem just ahead of kick-off, and players may wish to wear black armbands.

"We thank clubs and league organisations for the mark of respect shown at the weekend and for their efforts in resuming the professional game fixture schedule."
