Celtic crowned Scottish champions

Celtic crowned Scottish champions”

Celtic have been crowned Scottish Premiership champions for a ninth year in a row after the season was abandoned because of the coronavirus crisis.

The only change to the standings under the points-per-game scenario saw St. Johnstone jump above Hibernian into sixth place.

The decision is a blow for Hearts, who were four points behind Hamilton Academical at the bottom and still had 24 to play for.

"We would all have rather seen the league season played out on pitches, in stadiums and in front of supporters".

"The boys were desperate to finish the season on a real high the way we were playing and that's been taken away but to get nine titles in a row, it would only be the second time in the club's history, so that tells you how big an achievement it is in itself and something that I know the players would be extremely proud of".

Celtic have officially been crowned as the champions of Scotland for a ninth season in a row as the SPFL made a decision to end the 2019/20 season early, using a points-per-game method to finalise the league table.

The SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster said: "On Friday, Ladbrokes Premiership clubs expressed their clear and unanimous view that there was no realistic prospect of completing the outstanding fixtures from Season 2019/20".

Along with the government restrictions, MacLennan said "deep concerns for both player and spectator safety" were behind the decision to cut the season short.

SPFL have announced that the final league table has been decided on points per game basis. This decision now enables us to pay out around £7million in fees to help clubs stay afloat during this incredibly hard time.

"Nobody should be under any illusion", MacLennan said, "as to how complicated and hard a challenge it will be to return Scottish football to normality".

It is worth £125m across five years and will be a lifeblood to the Scottish game, as many of its clubs face a fight for survival.

Celtic dedicated the club's latest league title - its 51st, only three behind the national record held by Glasgow rival Rangers - to "key workers who are saving lives, cleaning hospitals, stacking shelves and shielding loved ones at home". We have stayed strong as a club, remaining focused, acting professionally and with thought at all times for others. Please DO NOT come to Celtic Park'.
