Celtic Chief Executive, Peter Lawwell, has released a statement on behalf of the club in response to the latest speculation surrounding Scottish football and the current uncertainty cause by the coronavirus pandemic.

Lawwell re-iterated the club’s desire to see all 38 games completed in the Scottish Premiership season but also supported the message of Neil Lennon by reminding fans of how dominant Celtic have been in the 30 games that have been played so far.

He left readers in no doubt as to his opinion on declaring the season null and void when he said:

“As many have already said, the season cannot be voided as the consequences of that are so severe. In the event that the matches cannot be completed, then the responsibility to find a fair and reasonable solution for the finalisation of all domestic leagues will be with the Scottish football governing bodies.”

Given the authorities recent handling of the disciplinary procedure, among other issues, trusting them to provide a “fair and reasonable solution” could be dreaming the impossible dream.

How many points clear are Celtic at the top of the league?

These Hoops fans took to Twitter in response to Lawwell’s statement happy that he has set the club’s stall out early and represented it in the manner expected.

With rumours of league reconstruction and more fixture uncertainty following UEFA’s decision to postpone the 2020 European Championships, Lawwell will be lobbying every member club behind the scenes to ensure that Celtic are front and centre in any decision making, only time will tell how successful he has been in his toughest task yet.
