Glasgow Rangers and other Scottish League clubs will now be gearing up for next season.
As other leagues, such as the Bundesliga and the Premier League, have taken the decision to end their campaigns on the pitch, the Scottish Premiership decided to end the term prematurely instead. Now, with full-contact training permitted north of the border, a return to action for Scotland’s top clubs should come sooner rather than later.
Having said that, there have already been warnings that the season could be incredibly congested as plans are put in place in an attempt to get the 2020/21 term to run smoothly. A delayed start, as well as the European Championships next summer, will both be significant factors.
Would you like the Gers to opt out of the Scottish League Cup?
It has now been revealed that clubs can choose to opt out of the Scottish League Cup if they do not feel they have the squads or the capability to compete in it.
This appears to have enraged these ‘Gers supporters as they believe it should be played as normal – one fan even called the decision “embarrassing”. They have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below:

Embarrassing & all because @ScottishFA want to continue with Scottish cup despite season being over. No wonder everywhere else thinks our league is Mickey Mouse.

So clubs were threatened with the possibility of 8 games in 4 days multiple times in a season. Then we have the optional League Cup. What a farce
