    We have a far larger gap with less games to play, which sets an example for us. They don't actually have a 15 point lead, points get halved at the split. They have a 7 point lead.

    Scotland assistant manager claiming season should be voided!

    that Stephen Reid *!

    daily * is desperate for season to be null and void they are the main * in media pushing it! Belgium has now * everyone in the senior leagues in Europe for a null and void imo they have declared, the financial ramifications for anyone else would be significant!

    The powers that be need to grow a set and do the right thing by awarding us the League, to null and void a season that's 80% complete should never be a consideration.

    You need to stop listening to these non-entities man..

    What in the name of * does Scotland assistant Steven Reid's opinion have to do with our league? Fuckall..

    Zero club's in Europe are for it. Belgium has already set the pace today. We've had many people in Scotland from former SFA chief's etc telling us that null and void isn't an option in Scotland as well and hasn't been anytime they've been round the table..

    We'll be the champion's and no one can do anything about it..

    I've stated from the off that I personally want to finish it ourselves within a couple of week's (which we would've done and still possibly could depending on how long our association is prepared to wait). Our league was done/finito/throat gestures before this pandemic and if anyone is being robbed of anything still....it's us. We are on for a quadruple treble..

    the thing about the Belgians doing it a little bit different , they have basically said the play offs are ''nul and void '' to a certain extent so they are settling it as is , without giving them the headache of trying to reschedule during the summer months etc , they in a way are totally different from any other league ( to my knowledge ) with having play offs and halfing points etc

    personally i dont think any standard has been set by them

    Austria have the same system, I think its a stupid system myself but there you have it.

    But they have set an example, other clubs could lose or gain European places had they done the play offs. Another team could have won the league.

    UEFA have warned that voiding league campaigns could see clubs barred from next season’s European competitions.

    SPFL chiefs are still stalling on making a decision on how Scottish football copes with the Covid-19 crisis.


    Declaring the 2019-20 season null and void has always been the last resort for chief exec Neil Doncaster because TV firms could be entitled to money back.

    But SunSport can reveal European football’s governing body have now made it clear they’re also dead against that course of action for sporting reasons.

    Euro beaks have no intention of making decisions on which teams should be crowned champions or be relegated in individual nations.

    That means the Hampden hierarchy faces a tough call on whether to resume the season, declare Celtic champions or void the entire campaign.


    But it’s understood strong “recommendations” have been made to the SPFL that they do NOT rule the season effectively didn’t happen.

    And Uefa have hinted any decision to void the season would have an impact on teams being allowed to compete in next season’s Champions League and Europa League.


    In a letter sent to football associations, UEFA warned: "We believe that any decision of abandoning domestic competitions is, at this stage, premature and not justified.

    "Since participation in UEFA club competitions is determined by the sporting result achieved at the end of a full domestic competition, a premature termination would cast doubts about the fulfillment of such condition.”


    The recommendations are now being considered by leagues all over Europe, with the financial implications huge.

    Belgian league chiefs are on the verge of declaring runaway league leaders Club Bruges as champions.


    That move is now being watched closely by other nations.

    The hope across the board has always been that the season would restart and be played out to a conclusion.


    But the longer the crisis continues the tougher that becomes to organise.

    Motherwell chief Alan Burrows said: “I think football before the end of June looks almost impossible.

    "I suspect, over the next short while, it may be that we have to make some tough decisions about this season.”

    Former Scottish football supremo Roger Mitchell insists the time has come to crown Celtic champions.

    He said: “I don’t think you can continue to drag this on, hope that some miracle happens and it all falls into place.

    "I think you need to call this league
