Some Celtic supporters have reacted poorly to Rangers’ attempt to put forward a proposal to the SPFL and vote down the league board’s recommendation to potentially end the season and declare the Bhoys champions.

Neil Lennon’s team currently sit 13 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership, having played one more game than the Ibrox side.

If the SPFL board’s proposal to end the season and decide final standings on a points per game basis comes to fruition then Celtic would win a ninth title in a row, if play did not restart this summer.

To counter that, Rangers have put forward their own idea of handing out cash immediately and deciding sporting matters later in a last gasp attempt to delay the inevitable of seeing the Hoops crowned Scottish champions again.

As quoted by The Daily Record, Rangers’ resolution reads: “That the board of the company be authorised and instructed to make payment to the member clubs of the league of loans equal to the amount that such member clubs would become entitled to if the Scottish Football Leagues were completed and each member club’s position in the completed league was the same as the position in which that member club is presently.

“Such loans to be provided without the payment of interest or fees to the league by the member clubs and to be made forthwith on the passing of this resolution and to continue to be available until the league determines that a final allocation of the payments to member clubs in respect of season 2019/2020 can be made.”


“On such determination by the league, member clubs shall be entitled to effect repayment by written confirmation to the league that the loan provided to that member club may be set against the equivalent amount of the repayment to be made to such member club on determination.”

Celtic fans though have reacted poorly to this, feeling that Rangers are simply looking for a cash grab based on their efforts this season, without coming to terms that the Hoops have also earned a league title win.

If the money is ready to be paid out, so should the prizes, surely?

These supporters have taken to Twitter over the last 48 hours to share their thoughts on it all…
