Rangers fans were reacting negatively after a report emerged about when Scottish football will continue after the recent events.
According to Gavin Wallace, football will not resume until September and the current standings will act as the final result. He also went on to reveal that due to the league’s insurance policy, the games cannot be played behind closed doors. The news will be a dagger to the hearts of Rangers fans due to the fact Steven Gerrard’s men still having a game in hand over Celtic and because there are still two Old Firm derbies still to play.
One fan called the claims ‘nonsense’.
Nonsense. No decision can be made until uefa make theirs. Think this is what your “source” wants to happen.

The recent postponement of the top-flight has split opinion among pundits and players about what to do about the league title. While Scott Brown believes his side deserve to be crowned champions if the year ends early, Sky Sports pundit (via Daily Record) and ex-Celtic man Charlie Nicholas has claimed that his former side shouldn’t be handed the trophy unless the campaign is completed.
Supporters weren’t pleased with the claims from the journalist as they took to Twitter to react to the news, with one calling the claims a ‘pack of lies’:
Does the league have insurance to cover all the litigation coming their way if this is fact ?

The court cases will run a lot longer than September if this is their plan. Hearts wont accept going down and it could be the end of Partick Thistle.
Hearts/Hibs could also have a claim at being done out a Euro place if they are voiding the cup but not the league.

They can’t award Celtic the league but not relegate anyone while it’s still mathematically possible for Celtic not to win the league …that’s a shambles
