CELTIC are hoping football chiefs follow Chile’s example if the league season is scrapped as fears grow amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Hoops, of course, are heading for their ninth successive title and hold a 13-point advantage at the top of the table with only eight league games to be played.

Neil Lennon’s men were scheduled to play at Ibrox at noon today where a win would have left them with just three victories from their remaining fixtures to make absolutely certain of the crown.

As CQN reported earlier today, the league supremos are likely to respond to a decision from MP Boris Johnston.

If a pointer is required, the SPFL bosses could follow the example of what happened in Chile last year when the league programme was cancelled amid political upheaval and civilian unrest.

Universidad Catolica were crowned champions of the Chilean Primera Division after the country’s football federation wrote off the last six fixtures.
They made the decision to award the crown to the team that had been currently leading the table, Universidad Catolica, while no teams were relegated or promoted.

It was a common sense conclusion that was accepted in the South American nation.
