Motherwell chief executive Alan Burrows says the likelihood of the league season finishing diminishes with every passing day.

The Well are one of many in limbo over what happens with the 2019/20 season. The fight again Covid-19 has led to the suspension of Scottish football for what is likely to be many months.

Burrows believes that whilst clubs are pushing for games to be played, it’s becoming more and more apparent that might not be possible.

“There’s still a big push by some to have the games played,” Burrows told the BBC. “I think it’s all up for grabs at this point. “It’s on my agenda in the sense that I think it’s the right way to handle it.


“But, given the timescales involved, with every day that passes I think it becomes more unrealistic in that sense. Everyone is waiting to see what happens. The players [at Motherwell] have been advised to keep themselves fit as there is still a chance we will have to play games at some point.

“The rest of the staff are on lockdown with everyone else. While everything is in lockdown football will return and Scottish football will be back stronger than ever at some point in the future, hopefully that’ll be 2020-21 and it’ll be in the late summer we can really get going again.”

Uncertainty looms

It’s a minefield when it comes to predicting what happens with this term. There are so many scenarios with many winners and losers.

It’s going to be impossible to find a solution that fits everyone. For every club in Scotland, this period may just be about getting through it with a team to come back to as financial worries appear probable for many.

Whilst many miss football terribly, it’s return date is likely some time away yet.
