Motherwell chief executive Alan Burrows isn’t confident that the current league season will be played to a completion, BBC Sport reports.

Scottish football is currently in lockdown, and there is no prospect of games being played until at least the 30th of April.

Burrows has disclosed that he wants to see the season completed, but feels that it looks unlikely at this stage due to the football calendar.

“It’s on my agenda in the sense that I think it’s the right way to handle it,” he said, as quoted by BBC Sport.

“Becomes more unrealistic”

“But, given the timescales involved, with every day that passes I think it becomes more unrealistic in that sense.”

Burrows’ comments are certainly interesting with regard to Celtic, as if the season cannot be completed, then a decision will have to be made about either making the current standings final, or calling the season null and void.

If the standings are final, Celtic will of course be nine in a row champions. No doubt some clubs won’t be happy with the outcome if the standings are final – Rangers and Hearts – but a decision has to be made sooner rather than later.

Authorities need to make decision soon

The Scottish football authorities need to make a decision soon so teams can begin preparations for next season. It is intriguing to note that Borrows is in favour or restarting the leagues.

That will be a viewpoint by every club in Scotland, you would think. However, time is not on the clubs’ sides to get the season completed.

Maybe the authorities are waiting for other countries around Europe to bring their leagues to an end. Should that happen, then maybe we will get a decision from the Scottish football authorities. Until then, we will just have to wait.
