Former Celtic defender Mark Wilson is adamant that the Hoops should be champions if the season has to be cut short, and that any talk to declare the season as null and void is wrong, the Scottish Sun reports.

Instead, Wilson feels that any teams complaining about the current situation have only themselves to blame, as they had all season to put pressure on the Hoops at the top of the league.

“Teams like Rangers and whoever else is second in the league, they’ve had all season to do it” Wilson said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.


“Can’t just wipe out 30 games”

“You can’t just wipe out 30 games of effort and creativity and great results. You can’t just say they don’t count. As long as everybody has played those amount of games, I think you should be judged on that. Whoever is top on 30 games, yes they should be crowned champions” he concluded.

Wilson’s comments will be welcomed by the vast majority of the Celtic support. It seems that the claims that the league should be declared null and void are mostly from Rangers supporters, who are fearful about the prospect of the Hoops clinching nine in a row.

But one thing that should be clear. As pointed out by Wilson, is that you can’t just wipe out 30 games of a season. A champion does have to be declared.

This season, the results show that the champion has to be Celtic. If football cannot be completed this season, then Celtic have to declared champions, and fans of other clubs will just have to get used to that situation.
