UEFA vice-president Michele Uva has insisted that the SPFL must make any decisions on final standings.

Debate has raged on with regards to how’s best to finish the 2019/20 season. Celtic believe they should be confirmed champions whilst Hearts have threatened legal action should they be relegated as a consequence of football’s shutdown.

It’ll be the SPFL who decide the likes of Celtic and Hearts’ 19/20 fate according to Uva, who says any big calls won’t come directly from UEFA.

“It’s not a matter for us, it will be up to each league to decide,” he told SportMediaset. “The only issue concerns those players who have contracts or loans expiring on June 30.

“But that isn’t a matter for UEFA, which will only ask for the list of teams that will participate in the next European competitions by a certain date.”

Wait goes on

There are obvious winners and losers in a null and void situation. Celtic and Dundee United will be desperate to wrap up their league titles whilst Hearts can’t afford to drop into the second tier again.

It’s thought that it could be as long as September before we could see football in Scotland again, bringing forth the question over whether this campaign can actually be completed.
