Former Aberdeen defender Willie Miller has suggested that Celtic should be crowned champions and Hearts relegated if the SPFL season is to be concluded.

UEFA recently revealed they hope to have domestic action completed by the end of June, however a number of pundits including Miller, believe that to be too optimistic a timescale.

Uncertainty reigns at this time with some saying Celtic should win the Premiership, given their 13-point lead, and others hoping the season is declared null and void.

Miller, who won 65 caps for Scotland, believes the SPFL and SFA should take a "pragmatic" view on the league completion if sporting integrity cannot be adhered to.

In his Evening Express column, Miller said: "When the coronavirus outbreak started I was all for the integrity of football and finishing the league.

"Yet the longer this crisis goes on, the tighter the window to finish the leagues becomes. If the leagues can be finished that would be the ideal scenario but that is looking less likely if an end of June deadline is enforced by Uefa.

Ultimately integrity may have to be binned and pragmatism take over with hard decisions made. No one will be happy with these decisions but we are in tough times and tough calls need to be made.

"Then you freeze the table and it will come down to what a club has done throughout the season before the shutdown. Celtic look like they will have won the league title regardless.

"Unfortunately for Hearts, they have had a poor season and are bottom of the Premiership while Dundee United have run away with their league in the second tier.

"If the league has to be cut off at the point it was initially halted due to the coronavirus clubs will have to accept that and legal action would not be the way to go.

"Clubs bottom of the league have had plenty of opportunities to get away from there this season. Relegation would be difficult to take, but affected clubs must ultimately accept it and move on to look forward to when this virus is finally beaten.

"Then plans can be put in place to resurrect that club going forward. Huge decisions need to be made within Scottish football soon and they must be guided by Uefa.

"There is a lot of hope out there that the season can be finished but in reality is that really going to happen? Uefa are talking optimistically about finishing seasons by the end of June but I don’t think that will be practical.

"If Uefa issue a direct mandate that all leagues must finish by the end of June I don’t see that happening. It is when that becomes impossible that tough decisions must be made.

"The season cannot be made null and void, that should not be an option.

"You would just have to take the current league position and make those tough calls on titles and relegation."
