Dundee United manager Robbie Neilson has given his opinion on what he wants to happen with this season’s Championship campaign.

The Tangerines are 14 points clear at the top of the second tier summit and looked set to coast over the finishing line. Their title bid is on hold though as the SPFL undergoes a suspension because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

There are more important matters to be dealing with according to the Dundee United man – but he would like to finish what his team have started.

“The season’s gone great so far,” Neilson told the BBC. “We had a great period over Christmas and New Year. We’ve put ourselves in a really good position. I think there are bigger things happening than talking about league titles.


“But from our perspective, we’d like to get the league completed. We’d like to finish all the games but ultimately we’ll do what we’re told by the officials.”

Waiting game

It’s fair to say that United deserve to go up this season. They’ve been far and away the best team in Scotland’s Championship this term.

Debate has raged on for over a week now as to what happens with the league situation. Whatever the case, a return to the stadiums looks likely to be months away.

It leaves the 2019/20 campaign up in the air – and Neilson will just be hoping for a good outcome in Dundee United’s favour.
