Would they concede , if the boot was on the other foot ?

Even if they were 10 points behind with 1 game to go they'd not concede and would demand/threaten that the league be scrapped.
Everyone knows how that lot operate.

We all know there’s not the slightest chance.

Nobody would, but they are more shameless than most, they proved it after the Legia Warsaw incident, the postponing of the Old Firm game after Phil O’Donnell died and of course the now infamous sporting integrity quote and kid on tour of Japan.

Never in a million years would they concede, if we were champions already and the season was postponed with a game to go, they would want the campaign scrapped.

The debate needs to be turned completely on its head.

So most reasonable people would say we are expected to beat St Johnstone at home. Which would give them a 10 point lead and therefore from their perspective that is enough to be handed the title.

So to turn it on its head they must logically agree a 10 point lead would be enough would be enough to see Rangers crowned champions.

Now the reason they are shouting about getting the league is because they believe they have an unassailable lead.

So it would be a reasonable assumption to believe they a one goal lead isn't enough to be described as unassailable. Probably a two goal lead is not unassailable either. I'll say a three goal lead doesn't fit the criteria either.

Ok let's say goal difference isn't enough surely a reasonable person would say that with eight matches to go. So is it like point? Eh probably not that could be overturned yeah? Two points? Nah let's rule that out that's only one match yeah.

This leads us onto the crux of it. The question that they will never be able to answer is.

If the roles were reversed at which point would Rangers be awarded the title between one goal and ten points ahead?

What is the criteria used?

No. No team would
Just like any other team in their position would be wanting to be declared champions

Soon as people realise everyone is bias to their own club and there’s no morals in football they’ll calm down to a riot about all this

I don't believe they would.

History shows that they have a previous in not conceding anything .

Found this article from 1986. Hearts needed 5 points from their last 3 games to win the league. The sheep & the arabs ( we were nowhere & fighting off a challenge from Dundee to be 5th) had conceded , but that horrible barsteward Davie Hay would not. He was mocked , but we all know what happened in the end. As Hay said "You never know in football".
Was it not 2 points for a win then ?

6 - 1 down on aggregate in a European Tie with only injury time to play and they refused to give it up - even after the final whistle. If there is a door open, or evenly slightly ajar, those feckers will use any means possible to push through it for their own benefit.
Hartson should be reminded of this every opportunity we get.

We all know the answer to that, not a hope in hell even if we only required one point from the remaining games would they concede.

Good find. Rhetorical question surely though?

They would never just roll over and concede a title to us.

Absolutely no chance. Mind you they have neither a sense of shame nor of honour. Despicable club from the womb to the tomb. Tour of Japan, Phil O'Donnel, Tommy Burns at al. There had better not be any movement from us on this.

All this stuff about someone conceding is nonsense.

It's not a boxing match ffs

There are 12 teams in the top division, one can't concede it with the other accepting it. Well they could but it would mean nothing.

I was once told by an ex sfa official that you need to ensure your paperwork’s spot on and they’re always requesting suspension lists
This was well before their beating in champions league qualifying games

they haven’t changed
 
I'm not sure where this idea about us conceding the title has came from. We'll not be asked to concede it. If the season doesn't finish the outcome of the 19/20 season will be out of our hands.

Would they fu........

Can't win unless it's mathematically impossible to be caught. League either needs to be played to a conclusion or scrapped.
