ROCK legend Sir Rod Stewart has described Rangers’ handling of the Scottish Premiership title row as “childish”.

The Light Blues are currently 13 points behind Celtic in the top-flight, but with football on hold due to the coronavirus crisis it remains to be seen whether the current season will be terminated or not.

Ibrox directors are adamant that the campaign should be played out in full and have forced league bosses at the SPFL to hold an EGM later this month.

Celtic-daft Sir Rod has accused Gers of bad sportsmanship for their behaviour during the Scottish football hiatus.

Speaking on talkSPORT, he said: "I've got a feeling all our boys will want to play because they want to get nine-in-a-row.

"Rangers might not want it, but we want it. If the shoe was on the other foot and this was Rangers, and it was Celtic causing such a fuss I'd be embarrassed.

"I'd want Celtic to give Rangers the league if they were 13 points in front with only eight games to go. I think this is such bad sportsmanship, it's horrid.

"I really mean that, I would. 13 points, better goal average, I think even Steven Gerrard would admit that, overall this season, Celtic were the better team.

"We could have increased our lead those last eight games."

Radio host Jim White then responded: "The argument there, Rod, is that many people - not just Rangers fans - say somehow they've got to find a way to play it to a conclusion, the campaign has to come to a logical conclusion."

Sir Rod continued: "Well, it does and that's the problem. The (Scottish Professional Football League) want it to stop and Celtic will be champions.

"Now, they're talking about two leagues of 14 that would save Hearts. It's so confusing, I read about it every day and I'm still not on top of it, especially up in Scotland."

He added: "There's too much acrimony gone on and there still is. I can't see them ever coming together.

"Unless you've been to those games, as many as I have, you have no idea what they're like.

"You've been Jim, haven't you? You're a bluenose, you've been many times.

"I don't understand why. I just said if the shoe was on the other foot I would genuinely give Rangers the title.

"I'd say: 'Come on, Celtic, we're bigger than this. Let's get on to next season.'

"That is honestly what I feel, from the deepest part of my heart.

"It stinks, it really does. It's the whole deflection thing, lets put the story somewhere else and take it away from nine-in-a-row.

"It's childish, in my opinion."
