“Rangers voted champions” – and other comical scenarios…

Remember March? Remember how the season had to be curtailed and our absurd SPFL decided to hold a vote to crown Celtic champions?

Well, whisper it, but with Rangers miles ahead in the league and the global crisis going through its most difficult winter period, there is a slim chance that the SPL season may have to be ceased.

Except, of course, with Rangers being so far ahead, it’ll either not happen or be cancelled as null and void.

The absurdity of what happened last season will never be forgotten – how Dundee were bribed with false promises and didn’t even receive what had been told them – and their vote became the key one.

In the end Celtic were voted champions, Hearts were relegated, and now we see a situation which is becoming a bit of an issue again.

Of course, let’s be clear – it’s still nowhere near as bad as doomsayers in the summer promised it would be – it’s bad, yes, but still not on that level, and even then the media are doing their best to scare people with irresponsible headlines which don’t even carry any weight in reality.

There’s also the small matter of a vaccine which will hit wide circulation come March April May time.

But nevertheless, the slim to very slim chance is that the season will be abandoned, and with Rangers in the lead we really do not see a vote this time to crown us champions.

Indeed, most likely the season will be axed, and ‘replayed’ next year to give Celtic another pop at trying to secure their fake 10.

Of course, we could actually be wrong – the season could actually be halted and voted to give Rangers the title. It could all be done fairly. And impartially. Like it was last time (I heard that snort at the back).

But the reality is it won’t. The only way Rangers will win 55 is on the pitch, as it should be. As it should have been for Celtic last time.

But then, Scottish football is and always has been a bad joke.
