Debate has raged on for over a week now with what’s best to do with the football season. Obviously the current league leaders will want it wrapped up, with Dundee United boss Robbie Neilson wanting to play the remaining games and Celtic’s Neil Lennon wanting his team declared champions.
It’s a debacle with winners and losers in every scenario. So, it seems, the SPFL will take UEFA guidance on the matter.
It’s reported that talks over condensing domestic European qualifiers are being mooted, should football not be likely to continue over the summer.
This means that two-legged affairs could become one. Bosses in Britain are beginning to call for instructions on how to plan for those types of games should football not be back underway by then.
SPFL and English Premier League leaders may be forced into declaring champions as a result of this move. It would mean that the likes of Celtic, Dundee United and Liverpool would all earn their respective crowns.
With so much to discuss and uncertain futures for many, this is far from the last suggestion we’ll likely see floated on finishing the 2019/20 campaign.
