Celtic mad Alan Brazil voiced his opinions on what he believes should happen with the rest of this season, and the SPFL should listen to what he had to say.
Speaking on talkSPORT on Friday morning (03/04/2020), as cited by the Daily Record, Brazil revealed he wants the season to be completed by seeing out the remaining fixtures, no matter how long that may take.
I want the season to be played. I don’t care how long it takes. Even if it has to go to July, August or September. I want it played out, I really do. I don’t think it’s right [to end the season early]. I think when you win the title fans should be able to celebrate in the final game so I want to see promotion and relegation I really do.
I pray to god in three weeks time it will have tipped and hopefully slowly we will be on our way down and then we can start looking ahead to see what can be done.
They can have a mini pre-season and get the games done, have another little break then come back. If we have to play three games a week to kick it all off then sorry, we have to do it. The squads are big enough, it’s as simple as that.
READ CELTIC VERDICT
The SPFL should certainly consider Brazil’s point, as finishing the season by completing the remaining league games is the fairest and best possible solution.
This would allow Celtic the chance to win their ninth successive title as normal, instead of being awarded the league early as a result of the season ending now.
It would also solve the debate with regards to what happens at the other end of the table, as ending this campaign early would see Hearts relegated as things stand, rather than allowing them the chance to fight for their safety.
Whether resuming the season in a few months time and finishing the campaign in September is plausible remains to be seen, however, as that would, of course, run into when the new season was scheduled to start.
And while Brazil’s outcome is what I believe should also happen, it looks as though the SPFL may be tempted to follow Belgium’s lead and end the campaign now, as chiefs are set to meet next week to discuss whether the Premiership should do the same.
