Celtic are the only club, the single only club, in the world across any sport asking for the title to be given to them. The only one. Amazing.

Now the SPFL have gone to UEFA and said "Look, we really, really, really want to give the title to Celtic but nobody else across Europe is pushing that agenda for other clubs - will you give us any negative shit WHEN we do give Celtic the title, even if nobody else does this".

What I would love is for UEFA to say to them that they can do what they like - however, if all other major leagues null and void then we won't be recognising your title you've handed to Celtic and we'll stick a nice big asterix next to their name say - greeting faces fucks that scan rules to get other clubs that beat them kicked out so they can get back in to competition. Also, the single only club on Earth that demanded a title during a global pandemic where 1000s died.

We have a highly paid executive at the SPFL who will freely tell you he has no power - he does what he is told by the clubs.
So the SPFL is willing to explore avenues of what options UEFA might suggest but they are not considering the option of null and void? FFS as a governing body it should be considering every option - OK it may be that such an option can be eliminated for certain reasons but to not have considered it at all is neglect or more probably incompetent. As for the SFA I keeping thinking back to an article on Raymond Sparkes ( one time John Collins agent ) in which he stated that what Petrie knew about football could be written on a gnat's arse.

Lawwell is only 1 of about 14 members of the Executive Board of ECA. Looking at the other clubs represented he’s a very small cog. The ECA provides 2 members to sit on the UEFA Executive Committee. His influence is minimal at that level.

In other words, we're scared to say boo to the filth, could you do it instead.

But of course you have the conniving filth that is Liewell at UEFA working behind the scenes.

We had better not accept this potential boot in the hee haws without a fight.
