Former Rangers striker Kris Boyd disagrees with Celtic boss Neil Lennon when it comes to the Hoops being named Champions if the season cannot be completed, the Scottish Sun reports.

The Hoops boss wants to see the Hoops crowned Scottish Champions if the season cannot be re-started.

“If it’s stopped then we should be awarded the championship, based on the average points per game” he said, as quoted by the Daily Record.

However, writing in his column in the Scottish Sun, Boyd strongly disagrees with Lennon.

“The same rule should apply”

“He wants Celtic to be crowned champions because they have played over 30 games, and they deserve it. Sorry Neil, it doesn’t work like that. Liverpool won’t be crowned Premiership champions until it’s mathematically impossible for them not to be caught — the same rule should apply to Celtic.”

It is unlikely that Lennon or anyone connected with Celtic will be impressed with Lennon’s comments, and the Hoops support aren’t likely to be impressed either.

However, until football is re-started in Scotland then there will be endless debate about the prospect of Celtic being declared Champions or not, if the season has to end before 38 games are played.

Hoops board will likely back manager’s stance

Neil Lennon has already declared his intentions that the Hoops should be crowned Champions, and you imagine that stance will be backed by the Celtic board.

No doubt Boyd, and everyone connected with Rangers, will feel that the Hoops should not be declared as Champions.

It is an unprecedented situation, and it will be interesting to see what the eventual outcome is. No matter the outcome, Celtic’s have proved themselves to be the best team in Scotland this season, no matter what Kris Boyd or anyone else has to say on the matter.

What do you make of Boyd’s comments? Surely Neil Lennon was right with what he had to say? Share your thoughts below with a comment in our new discussion forum…
