The SPFL board will meet at 10am on Monday morning, The Daily Record reports, where it’s expected that league leaders Celtic will be officially crowned champions.

Clubs, with a vote last month, gave the board express permission to end the season early should games not be able to be completed.

Since then further Scottish Premiership meetings have taken place as the league body looked to consult on club feeling prior to making that final decision.


The 2019/20 SPFL Board is made up of Neil Doncaster (CEO), Murdoch MacLennan (Chairman), Karyn McCluskey (non-executive), Alan Burrows (Motherwell), Les Gray (Hamilton Academical), Stewart Robertson (Rangers), Ross McArthur (Dunfermline Athletic), Ewen Cameron (Alloa Athletic), Ken Ferguson (Brechin City) and Peter Davidson (Montrose).

It has been previously reported that there is now unanimous feeling amongst all 12 top-flight clubs that the season cannot continue, meaning that this group can come to their season-ending conclusion tomorrow.

With the meeting said to be kicking off at 10am, we could even hear by early afternoon that Celtic are nine-in-a-row champions.

Although clearly not the ideal circumstances for a league win, nor for celebrating an unbelievable nine-in-a-row achievement, the news will undoubtedly bring a smile to Celtic fans’ faces, my own included.

There’s plenty to be concerned about right now but we should allow ourselves the luxury of time to reflect on what has been another exceptional season from Neil Lennon and his Bhoys.

Nine-in-a-row runs, as we know, don’t come around often and even there is an expectation we will now push on and secure a tenth, we simply can’t take it for granted.

It’s something generations of supporters thought they might never see repeated after Jock Stein’s famous teams achieved the feat in the 60s and 70s.

All eyes are now on the outcome of Monday’s meeting. Is tomorrow finally the day it’s all confirmed?
