Kris Commons reckons Celtic should be champions should the SPFL and SFA decide to conclude the season now - though he admits it would be 'somewhat tainted'.

The Scottish Premiership faces uncertainty over when the next round of fixtures for this season will be played, if at all. Real fears have surfaced over potentially scrapping the campaign and declaring it null and void.

That would severely disappoint the Hoops who currently sit 13 points clear at the top of the table with just eight games remaining. Commons, then, believes his former employers should be crowned. "It's a strange scenario," he told talkSPORT.

"From a personal perspective, I would like to think the season will not be null and void as if it never happened. Celtic, 30 games in and 13 points clear of Rangers should be champions, if that is the case.

"It almost feels as it if would be somewhat tainted in a way that they've not carried out the full fixture list. But, as I said previously, Celtic are top of the league for a specific reason because they have proved to be the best side in Scotland up until these 30 games.

"There could be plenty of twists and turns remaining in these eight fixtures but, it's one that, would Steven Gerrard actually contemplate that sort of scenario? I don't know. It's a strange one. The magic nine in a row and going for ten, you'd like to think that Celtic would fulfil their fixture list and everything would be okay in a normal scenario.

"But, at the minute, people's health, that is the main concern. That is why we're talking about this right now."

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard, meanwhile, has provided Gers fans with an update on behalf of the club earlier today. The Liverpool legend insists he does not want games played behind closed doors as a potential solution as it's "unfair" on fans.
