Premiership clubs surely hoped details of their unanimous vote on Friday to agree the time was right to call a halt to season 2019-20 and to declare Celtic champions remained private until the SPFL took the final step. Sloppy minute taking and (credit where due) sound reporting by the Daily Record brought the story to light today.
Credit also to the other 11 Premiership clubs, each of whom put their name to the call to declare Celtic champions. With so much acrimony around, it is important to know so many were on our side on this historically important matter. I’m sure we will all say “But your club voted to instruct the SPFL to make Celtic champions” at some point in the coming months.
Uefa require each national association to inform them of their plans for completing this season by 25 May, so the SPFL have little over a week to consult with public health advisors and inform the SFA of their plans. I know we are not all working Monday-to-Friday, but a decision tomorrow would allow many the weekend for a rare celebration. After this, the club can sit out the rest of the crisis and prepare for their Scottish Cup semi-final against Aberdeen and the chance to complete a fourth consecutive treble.
Nine-in-a-row and four trebles on the bounce. Still cannot believe where we are.
