Reading now: 566

Hopes of football crowds returning to stadiums has been dealt a major blow after First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced there will be no change to Covid restrictions in Scotland.Crowds have been restricted to just 500 since Boxing Day, and the Scottish Premiership brought its winter break forward by a week.It was hoped restrictions would be relaxed in time for the Premiership's resumption on January 17.But the spread of Omicron is still causing enough concern and it looks increasingly likely that games will be played in essentially empty stadiums when the top-flight season is restarted.Restrictions will be reviewed next week in what will be the last hope for Scottish football to return to anything like normal.Lower league clubs voted to press ahead without a break, with many clubs not really affected by the 500 cap.However, Championship and League One clubs are struggling in the middle of a financial climate that is already challenging.Follow Lanarkshire Live Sport onTwitter via@LanLiveSport, like us onFacebookor find us onInstagramfor the latest sports news, pictures and video.

Abbott directs DFPS to investigate "abusive" gender-transitioning procedures on Texas children
AUSTIN, Texas - Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has directed the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) to investigate reported instances of "abusive gender-transitioning procedures" done on Texas children.Abbott sent a letter to DFPS earlier this week saying the law "imposes a duty on DFPS to investigate the parents of children subjected to gender-transitioning procedures, and on other state agencies to investigate licensed facilities where such procedures may occur."The letter comes after Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton released a formal opinion concluding that "performing certain ‘sex-change' procedures on children, and prescribing puberty-blockers to them, is 'child abuse’ under Texas law."Abbott's letter also states that Texas law imposes reporting requirements on licensed professionals with direct contact with children, including doctors, nurses, and teachers, and criminal penalties for failing to report abuse. In August 2021, Abbott had previously directed DFPS to issue a determination on whether gender reassignment surgery constituted as child abuse.In a letter to the governor, Commissioner Jaime Masters determined that "genital mutation of a child through reassignment surgery" constitutes child abuse because it may cause "a genuine threat of substantial harm from physical injury to the child"."Genital mutilation of a child through reassignment surgery is child abuse," reads Commissioner Masters' letter.
