Match abandoned

16th January 2015

Game abandoned after only 23 minutes.

Hearts' match against Rangers was abandoned 23 minutes into play this evening.

Heavy snowfall threatened before kick-off but referee Bobby Madden deemed the pitch playable.

However, it soon became clear that neither side could play football as conditions became farcical.

The referee consulted with both manager before calling a halt to proceedings after 23 minutes with the score at 0-0.

Details of a rearranged date will be announced in due course.
