Celtic mad talkSPORT host Alan Brazil doesn’t have sympathy for the problems of Premier League footballers during the current health crisis, writing in his Sunday Post column.
Brazil has decried any ‘whinging’ coming from big clubs and players as a result of football being suspended, feeling that not only does public health come first but also the wishes of supporters.
To that end, he reckons the majority of fans want to see a conclusion to the 2019/20 season and has called on the current campaigns being finished before any new ones begin, regardless of when the remaining fixtures are played.
He applies that to Scottish football too, writing in The Sunday Post: “I’m very well aware that we can’t compare the financial position of the English Premier League with what goes on in Scotland.
“That said, I believe the same principle should apply. We should complete this season when it is safe to do so and then worry about the future.
“I think it’s the way the majority of fans would want things to happen. There are difficult decisions to be made, but people are the most important.”
Clearly there are more important priorities right now than football but Brazil’s point is a decent one.
The thought of the 2019/20 being played to a conclusion, whenever safe and possible to do so, is a hopeful and morale-boosting one.
When the first Celtic match takes place after all this it’s going to be a glorious sight and likely an emotional occasion. The same could be said for matches across the country.
With so much uncertainty around, one of the only things we can say for sure is that one day Celtic action will return.
When that happens, it doesn’t matter what trophy we are chasing.
