The Daily Record has run a report providing inside details on a crucial Scottish Premiership meeting last week that could lead to Celtic being named champions sooner rather than later.
The paper say that there is now unanimous agreement amongst the 12 top-flight clubs, including Rangers, for the season to be ended early and for the Hoops to be crowned title winners.
However, Aberdeen made a blunder in the aftermath of the video conference call, failing to register that unanimity as anything other than consensus.
Minutes of the meeting had to be hastily changed on Tuesday morning to prevent confusion.
A source told The Daily Record: “There was a lot going on during that meeting of the Premiership clubs as well as Dundee United. It was during those discussions, for example, that it became obvious there was no appetite for league reconstruction. And that quickly became the major talking point.
“But it was not until the minutes were sent to all clubs that the discrepancy between what actually happened and what was put down in writing was spotted. On a matter of such importance, there’s a huge difference between a unanimous decision, which is what took place, and a consensus, which is what was minuted.”
The correct notes have now been submitted to SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster who has to convene with the rest of the SPFL board before officially calling time on the 2019/20 campaign.
However, the paper believes this decision will now be taken in a matter of days because clubs are keen on receiving the final tranche of prize money based on final league placings.
There has been a lot of rancour and accusations on the path to this point but it now appears the league is moving forward with some sort of clear plan.
Once the season is called, a full focus can be put on the ramifications of that and building towards next term.
