Tynecastle statement

While Partick Thistle Football Club is pleased that today’s Ladbrokes Premiership match against Hearts will go ahead, we remain deeply unhappy that the decision was left so late in the day. It is unacceptable that there was uncertainty about whether a top flight game would go ahead less than 18 hour before kick-off.#

It is not right to treat players, staff and, most importantly, the supporters of both clubs in this way. It is a situation that never should have been allowed to develop – and it must not happen to any club in future.

On Monday, we will be asking the SPFL for an extensive review into the circumstances that allowed this situation to arise. Specifically, we will be asking why it was allowed to continue to such a late stage, damaging Scottish football at a time when we are all working hard to attract new fans.

As a club, we would like to apologise to our own fans for the late notice on the decision and any inconvenience it may have caused.
