Celtic look set to be given some clarity on the remainder of this season as the SPFL prepare to hold talks next week.
According to the Daily Record, chiefs from the SPFL will have a number of calls next week to discuss whether the Premiership should follow the Belgian Pro League’s example of declaring the season over and awarding Celtic the title.
The report also states how the possibility of the season being declared null and void will not be discussed during the calls.

The Pro League may well have set a precedent to respective leagues all across Europe, by becoming the first major division across the continent to make such a decision.
And Belgium’s decision to announce their season as officially over on Thursday appears as though it is going to have a big impact on the Premiership season, based on the Daily Record’s report.
Club Brugge were 15 points clear of second-place Genk with just one league game and the play-offs between the top six clubs remaining, which is a similar scenario to where the Premiership is currently at.
The Hoops are 13 points ahead of Rangers with eight league games remaining, including the five post-split fixtures.
Therefore, with the SPFL ruling out a null and void scenario, and a report earlier this week suggesting they believe it is unrealistic to try and finish this season, Celtic could be crowned champions by this time next week depending on the outcome of those conference calls.
