The two Scottish Premiership victories awarded to Motherwell in the wake of Covid-19 regulations breaches by Kilmarnock and St Mirren have been suspended pending the outcome of appeals.

’Well were awarded 3-0 wins against Killie and the Buddies after games were postponed in October, but the Rugby Park side and St Mirren have joined forces to protest and now their punishments are on hold pending that appeal.

Speaking after Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Dundee United, Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson revealed his displeasure at the announcement.

He said: “The timing of the SFA’s announcement was well thought out, wasn’t it?

“The day of a game? Maybe people could use their brains and announce it on a Monday.

“I’m certain they didn’t meet on Christmas Day.

“We haven’t shouted or screamed about points.

“We haven’t done anything wrong and are willing to play the games, as we always were.”

Having the six points removed following the appeal – to be heard on January 14 – means ’Well are down to ninth in the Premiership table ahead of a home game against Kilmarnock tomorrow night (Wednesday), kicking off at 6.15pm.
