RANGERS manager Steven Gerrard has called for clarity and fairness from the SPFL as they attempt to draw up a contingency plan for another coronavirus curtailed season.

The SPFL have sent questionnaires to all 42 of their member clubs asking for feedback on how they should proceed if the 2020/21 campaign is cut short by Covid-19.

They are keen to avoid the acrimony and controversy that dogged the end of last season by agreeing a course of action in advance.

Rangers were furious when final Premiership placings were decided on a points per game basis in May and Celtic were crowned champions.

The Ibrox club had been 13 points behind their Parkhead rivals with nine matches remaining when football was suspended in March due to the coronavirus outbreak.

With a game in hand and two Old Firm matches still to play, they could conceivably have caught and overtaken the top flight leaders.

Hearts, Partick Thistle and Stranraer were also angry when they were relegated from the Premiership, Championship and League One respectively.

This season has, despite strict testing protocols being put in place and top flight squads operating in bio-secure environments, been dogged by positive results and postponements.

The St Mirren match against Hamilton yesterday was called off on Friday night when the Paisley club revealed they only had 11 players available.

Gerrard is hopeful that the concerns of every club in the country are listened to by the SPFL and a sensible solution is arrived at.

“I’m not the person that makes these decisions, I’m not in on the chats, I don’t have an influence on what people decide to do,” he said

“It’s out of my control. There are people in positions to make these decisions, they go to meetings. Unfortunately, I’m not involved.

“I hope all the clubs are listened to. I think it’s only fair if all the clubs are listened to. Let’s hope they make the right decision for the game of football, what’s fair. That’s all I ask for, fairness and clarity, then move forward.”

Meanwhile, Gerrard has revealed that Borna Barisic, the Croatian left back who limped off in the first-half of Rangers’ Europa League match against Standard Liege in Belgium on Thursday night, is struggling with a muscle injury and could miss the Premiership game against Livingston at Ibrox this afternoon.

“Borna is still feeling some tightness in his quad area which we will assess,” he said. “We are considering sending him to get a picture of that in terms of a scan as well. We are not worried about the injury, but we just might overkill that one, check that one, before we make a decision on the weekend.”
