Like many of us associated with Scottish football, players are giving their thoughts on the SPFL’s indefinite suspension, and two Motherwell stars are no different.

Tony Watt and Newcastle loanee Rolando Aarons have given their take on the news. Aarons joined the Well from the Toon on deadline day following James Scott’s Fir Park departure.

Watt meanwhile arrived shortly after spending some time training with the club as a free agent. Both have featured heavily for Stephen Robinson’s side over the last few weeks.

Taking to Twitter, both attackers have given their reactions to the news that SPFL football is on hold for now. The Well’s Newcastle loanee said: “No game and league suspended, don’t know what to do with myself now but stay safe everyone.


Keep safe is the message from Well striker Watt: “Football without fans is nothing. Stay safe follow the steps to make sure you aren’t at risk… Take it seriously regardless of your opinion. Better safe than sorry.”

Out indefinitely

By this point, a result was due from Motherwell’s third place battle with Aberdeen. A win would have had the Steelmen four points clear, but now, who knows when we’ll kick off again.

Watt had made six appearances in claret and amber following his arrival, scoring twice. Aarons meanwhile had made eight appearances with a goal and two assists.

Both were starting to motor at Fir Park but when we’ll see these two and the rest of Scottish football’s stars start up their engines again is questionable.
