Glasgow Rangers were never going to be happy when the Scottish football season was brought to an end last month.
Indeed, the SPFL decided that the top four leagues in the country couldn’t continue due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. This led to the Light Blues’ fiercest rivals Celtic winning the Premiership title and Hearts being relegated to the Championship.
Predictably, the premature end has given rise to a number of other talking points, including James Anderson’s emergency cash injection and the Light Blues accusing the SPFL of corruption, but Neil Doncaster has stood firm.
However, the Daily Mail has now claimed that UEFA are open to a Ligue 1 U-turn and the season could resume with playoffs used to crown the champions and decide relegation.
Following the successful return of the Bundesliga, and the fact that the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A are all set to return in the summer, UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has admitted the French top flight campaign could restart after several clubs threatened the governing body with legal action.
Hearts and Rangers have previously called for an independent inquiry and voted against the season-ending proposal (BBC). This latest decision could provide the board with the perfect example they need to mount a successful legal challenge.
Unsurprisingly, many RFC fans raged at the SPFL after the Ligue 1 news emerged, with one fan tweeting that their dealings are “shameful” and another urging clubs to “finish the season” instead.
Scroll down through some of the scathing reactions so far…
