CELTIC have reportedly called for the Scottish Premiership season to be kept alive, despite having the chance of being crowned champions.

The SPFL and SFA are in constant communication with UEFA to try and establish the best way to conclude the 2019/20 campaign. Some argue the season should be null and void, others insist current league standings should count as final and the option of playing the league season out is also being explored.

The Hoops are currently 13-points clear at the top of Scotland’s top flight and reports had suggested that league bosses were close to awarding Neil Lennon’s side the title by ending the season early.

But the Daily Record report today that the Parkhead club are against this option and hope the season can be played out in full.

A source said: “Celtic’s position is very clear. We have always wanted the league season to be completed and that remains our view. If there is any chance of playing the games and finishing the season over the summer then that’s what we would prefer.

“But we also understand the financial problems are piling up for clubs all across the country the longer this crisis continues. If the season has to be ended early in order to stop clubs from going to the wall then, of course, we would go along with that. It has to be all about the greater good.”

UEFA chief Aleksander Ceferin stated that if leagues decide to finish the season prematurely future European qualification places could be in jeopardy.

The SPFL are set to hold a meeting to discuss their next move and it’s understood they want to call the league now in order to distribute prize money to clubs.
