BeIn Sports commentator and former Rangers striker Andy Gray says Celtic should not be handed the league trophy if the season cannot be completed.
The Hoops were thirteen points ahead of their Old Firm rivals before matches were suspended, but Gray thinks the title race is still alive, and he can’t see why the Hoops should be awarded the title:
“No Championship that’s unfinished should be declared finished. In Scotland, it’s even closer [compared to England]. It’s close and it’s not close as it might be or should be. But it’s too close to call still [in regards to handing out the title].”
No doubt, there is a lot of bias in terms of Gray’s comments, and while there can be arguments regarding the legitimacy surrounding giving Celtic the title, no one would argue that the race is too close to call as he says.
The Gers may well have a game in hand, but with two Old Firm derbies still to play that gap could easily be extended, rather than closed.
The SPFL and SFA has suspended all football until April 30th at the earliest, but there is no guarantee that games will be played after that date due to the ongoing pandemic.
