SPFL Chief Executive Neil Doncaster and the rest of the league board will look into detailed notes from Friday’s video conference between Scottish Premiership clubs before making the call to end the top-flight season, The Scottish Sun report.
The board have the express permission of top-flight clubs to call the season on an average points per game basis after a 42-member vote but the league chairman Murdoch MacLennan ensured there would be a consultation before the decision is made.
Last night, Doncaster made it clear they were waiting on feedback from Friday’s meeting but did confirm everything should be wrapped up before 25th May, due to UEFA guidelines.
As quoted by The Scottish Sun, he said: “The chairman has indicated there would be consultation with the Premiership clubs.
“There was a Premiership club call on that on Friday so we are awaiting detailed feedback from that call. The SPFL board will want to take account of what the clubs have been saying.
“I’m not going to predict when a decision might be made. That’s ultimately something the Board has said it will consult the Premiership clubs over. So let’s see what detailed notes emerge from their meeting last Friday.”
With tomorrow’s EGM providing as a massive distraction right now, it feels unlikely any formal decision on Celtic’s title win will be made until the back-end of this week.
However, the fact that the Premiership has already met and presumably, by this point, submitted their notes, it surely won’t be too long until we get official word that the season is over.
Although everyone is dealing with a public health crisis right now, that’ll be a moment that’s sure to put a smile on Celtic fans’ faces.
Nine-in-a-row is something many generations of Celtic supporters thought they’d never see.
It may not be arriving in perfect circumstances, to say the least, but Neil Lennon and his squad deserve the plaudits that will come their way.
