BREAKING NEWS! Celtic Crowned Champions As Scottish Season Ends


Celtic have been declared Premiership champions for 2019-20, with the SPFL taking the decision to cut short the Scottish season amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The vast majority of sides in the top-flight had played 30 fixtures prior to football entering a state of lockdown , with Rangers and St Johnstone stuck on 29.

A points per game model has been used to finalise the standings and bring the curtain down on a campaign that will not be played to a finish .

With Celtic having been 13 points clear of Old Firm rivals Rangers when entering an enforced break, the crown is heading to Parkhead once more – for a ninth year in succession. Hearts, meanwhile, will be slipping out of the Premiership, with relegation confirmed for the Edinburgh-based outfit.

SPFL chairman Murdoch MacLennan said of the decision to bring things to a close:

“Firstly, I would like to take this opportunity to officially congratulate Celtic on their achievement of winning the Ladbrokes Premiership this season, and also to sincerely commiserate with Hearts on their relegation.

“We would all have rather seen the league season played out on pitches, in stadiums and in front of supporters. This is not the way anybody involved with Scottish football would have wanted to conclude the league season but, given the grave and unprecedented circumstances that we are facing, the Board has agreed that it is the only practical way forward.

“Covid-19 has wreaked havoc on sporting competitions around the world and the repercussions will be felt for a long time. Scottish Government restrictions and deep concerns for both player and spectator safety left the SPFL with no realistic option but to call the Ladbrokes Premiership now and we thank the Premiership clubs for their support on this decision.”
