A total of 23 matches in the English Football League are off, as is the entire Scottish Professional Football League programme, although the four Scottish Cup quarter-finals could still go ahead.
"There are no pitch inspections scheduled at this stage, but we are in close contact with all clubs, police and local authorities to review all matches on a case-by-case basis," said a Scottish FA spokesman.
"As always, the safety of supporters, players and staff is our top priority."
