Out-on-loan Watford player Alex Jakubiak has had his season cancelled after the Scottish Professional Football League decided to cancel the Premiership.

Jakubiak had been on loan with St Mirren where he scored once in ten games in all competitions.

As a result of the cancellation, Celtic have been crowned champions, while Hearts have been relegated.

The SPFL announced the widely-anticipated decision following a meeting with all clubs on Monday morning, with the campaign determined on a points per game average.

SPFL chairman Murdoch MacLennan said in a statement: "Firstly, I would like to take this opportunity to officially congratulate Celtic on their achievement of winning the Ladbrokes Premiership this season, and also to sincerely commiserate with Hearts on their relegation.

"We would all have rather seen the league season played out on pitches, in stadiums and in front of supporters.

"This is not the way anybody involved with Scottish football would have wanted to conclude the league season but, given the grave and unprecedented circumstances that we are facing, the board has agreed that it is the only practical way forward.

"Covid-19 has wreaked havoc on sporting competitions around the world and the repercussions will be felt for a long time.

"Scottish Government restrictions and deep concerns for both player and spectator safety left the SPFL with no realistic option but to call the Ladbrokes Premiership now and we thank the Premiership clubs for their support on this decision."

Jakubiak's contract at Watford is due to expire this summer.
