Rangers have issued a response on their official website to Neil Lennon’s claims that Celtic should be awarded the title if the season fails to see the full 38 games to it’s conclusion.

It should come as little surprise that they haven’t echoed the Hoops gaffer’s sentiment and have instead declared that, not only should the season be fully completed but that there should be no fixtures played behind closed doors either.
How would you describe Rangers coronavirus statement?
Celtic have clearly been the better side since January and would be deserved champions should the season be called to a halt having seen a two point lead expand to a 13 point lead such is their dominance domestically.
Fans of the Parkhead club took to Twitter in response to their city rivals posturing with a mixture of incredulity and humour:

Wouldn’t you be better off “maintaining a watchful eye” on your own finances? Where are your interim accounts? How much money do you have in the bank? Have you a line of credit from your bank? We won’t be taking lessons in ethics from shysters like you thanks 👍

In what appears to be an already tense landscape, there is little chance of an amicable solution being found over the next few weeks, for those that were worried that there wouldn’t be anything worth watching without the football – grab the popcorn.
