Robbie: Right call

5th December 2015

Head coach says postponement was the correct decision.

Robbie Neilson has said that calling off today’s Ladbrokes Premiership fixture against ICT was the “right decision”.

The Tynecastle encounter was called off after a 7.30am pitch inspection, with extreme adverse weather conditions putting paid to the game.

Speaking to Hearts News, Robbie said: “We’re disappointed not to have a game to play today but ultimately it was the right decision.

“Playing conditions would’ve been less then ideal, and the high winds would’ve turned what should’ve been a great football match into a farce.

“You have to take into account players, staff and supporters’ safety too.

“We now turn our attention to Aberdeen a week today and start preparing for that.”
