ALLY McCOIST admits he is worried about Celtic’s chances of landing a 10th successive title.

The Hoops are on the brink of being awarded their ninth crown following the decision by the UEFA executive committee yesterday, as CQN reported.

Neil Lennon’s side were 13 points ahead with only eight games to play when the game went into cold storage due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The SPFL, who have already sounded the final whistle on the Championship, League One and League Two, have now been given the green light by European’s football bosses to name their champions and representatives for European competition.

That could see the flag heading to the east end of Glasgow for the 51st time in the club’s history. And that is an admitted concern for Ibrox icon McCoist.

The former Scotland international striker, speaking on talkSPORT, said: “I would be telling you a lie if I didn’t say it wasn’t a disappointment or a real concern or a worry.

“But this league is bizarre and you know what it’s like, particularly in Scotland, it’s worse than anywhere else.

“Because there will be an element, if Celtic are given the title, they’ll feel it’s unfair and unjust.

“But, like I’ve said, you’re not going to please everybody. Nobody is going to be pleased with some of the decisions that have to be made.

“I’d not like to be in the shoes of the people who have got to make these decisions. Whether Celtic are given the title or not, whether Liverpool are given the title or not, it remains to be seen.

“But in terms of 10 in a row, of course, it’s a concern. I’d be lying to you if I said it wouldn’t be.”
