McDiarmid Park clash called off

Updated: 

The Scottish Premiership clash between St Johnstone and title hopefuls Aberdeen has been postponed after the McDiarmid Park playing surface was deemed unplayable. 

Referee Bobby Madden oversaw a pitch inspection early on Sunday and made the decision to call off the game due to a waterlogged pitch. 

Victory for Aberdeen would have hauled them level on points with leaders Celtic.
