As with all aspects of life, football leagues have been massively impacted so far by the fearsome juggernaut that is the coronavirus.
Until now, the general public was under the belief that the effects were temporary. Football’s definitely coming back this season, they opined.
Now, however, tangible, lasting consequences are being observed throughout the footballing world. Most recently, it has emerged that the Belgian League is being called off for this season. This has led many to fear that other leagues could soon follow suit.
Now, a proposal from Scottish Premier Football League seeks to do exactly that.
It has suggested that the current season be abandoned and that places be awarded on an average points-per-match basis.
What this basically means is that Celtic, currently leading the table by thirteen points, would be anointed champions. The administration is highly confident of the vote passing and Celtic fans are now joyously celebrating their potential title win.
On the other end of the spectrum are clubs like Heart of Midlothian, who would consequently be relegated. However, the club most miffed by this decision is undoubtedly Celtic’s bitter rivals Rangers.
Rangers fans cry foul
The Bluenoses were finally hopeful of a close season this year with a strong squad under manager Steven Gerrard. However, it seems, they will now have to contend with watching the Hoops lift the trophy for the ninth time in a row.
Many supporters simply could not handle this state of things and took to forum.rangersmedia.co.uk for lengthy posts denouncing this decision.
Celtic fans decided to indulge in some trolling at this point. A few fans took screenshots of the forum posts. They then put them up on Twitter, mocking their meltdowns and noting how salty they were.
The Celts had a field day taking the absolute piss out of their rivals with some grade-A horseplay, much to the ire of the Rangers faithful.
