SPFL Chairman Murdoch MacLennan has congratulated the champions of the Scottish Championship, League One and League Two after the confirmation that all three divisions will come to an end this season.
As quoted by the SPFL website, he said of Dundee United, Raith Rovers and Cove Rangers: “Firstly, I want to pass on my warmest congratulations to all three clubs on their successful campaigns.
“This was a highly unusual end to the season, to say the least, and not the one any of us would have preferred, but all three deserve enormous credit for their performances over the course of the season.”
This is now the fate in store for Celtic if the action in the top-flight cannot feasibly be resumed this season, after the SPFL’s resolution passed with 81% support of clubs.
STV have reported the end of the Premiership season is likely to be ratified by UEFA later this April.
It obviously would not be the ideal circumstances to be crowned nine-in-a-row champions but it should not deflect away from the achievement of Neil Lennon’s Bhoys.
The team have shown remarkable consistency this season with the individual performances of players such as Odsonne Edouard and Callum McGregor.
The ongoing issues impacting society are not being enjoyed by anyone.
However, everyone needs a distraction and when the title win is confirmed we should all take time to reflect on the season and celebrate the effort.
The drama won’t end here, with a tonne of complaining expected from the usual suspects.
What can’t be lost by the Celtic support though is how much the team deserve to be nine-in-a-row champions.
