FORMER Scotland international striker Kenny Miller insists it would be premature to award Celtic the Premiership title.
The veteran hitman admits the Hoops, 13 points ahead with only eight games to play, are favourites for their ninth successive championship.
But is also adamant nothing can be taken for granted and “stranger things have happened in football”.
The Belgian football bosses have defied UEFA and awarded the championship to Club Brugge who were 15 points in front of Mikael Lustig’s side Gent before the coronavirus pandemic lockdown.
The SPFL could follow that example and announce Neil Lennon’s men are worthy champions of the country.
However, Miller, who is now with Australian side Newcastle Jets, told the Glasgow Times: “I don’t think anything is decided yet, albeit there are favourites for certain things.
“Celtic are overwhelming favourites to go ahead and win the league, which they probably will.
“But stranger things have happened in football over the years and I don’t think anything should be taken for granted.
“I’m sure Neil Lennon wouldn’t have been taking anything for granted and would be wanting to finish the job off.
“So, if it can be finished safely and we get the green light from the powers-that-be, I’d like to see it finished.”
Miller, of course, had careers at both Parkhead and Ibrox and completed his playing career this season at Partick Thistle before taking over as assistant coach Down Under.
