Neil Lennon would expect Celtic to be declared Ladbrokes Premiership champions if the season is brought to a premature end due to the coronavirus crisis.

But do you agree?

The Scottish Football Association and Scottish Professional Football League’s joint response group announced on Friday an immediate suspension, with all games -including Sunday’s Old Firm derby at Ibrox – postponed until “further notice”.

Social media has been abuzz since Neil Lennon said in the worst-case scenario that saw Scottish football unable to restart, his side should be crowned champions.

The Hoops are 13 points clear with 8 games left in the season, and many fans agree with Lennon that his side should be crowned champions if the league was to end.

However, others have been quick to point to other issues such as relegation an the fact that the league win is not mathematical, and therefore should be voided. 

In a press conference where Lennon said that the right steps had been taken to suspend the game,  the Celtic boss referenced Dundee United’s 14-point lead over Inverness in the Scottish Championship and Liverpool’s apparent romp to the Premier League title – as well as Hearts’ struggle at the bottom of the Premiership table – when asked what should happen if the season was scrapped.

“We would be the champions and rightly so,” said Lennon.

“We are 13 points clear. Dundee United, they would have to be promoted as well.

“Certainly, if you are talking about the Armageddon of the league being cancelled or stopped, it should go on the average points total which would make us clear champions and rightly so.

“We are over 30 games into the season, they are not going to take that away from us.

“Are they going to do that to Liverpool? I would doubt it very much.

“I get your point about Hearts but you have to look at average point per game and take it from there.

“If it was to stop now I would doubt very much that they would say it was null and void.”

Lennon confirmed there were no signs of the virus in the Celtic camp as he revealed the players were given a couple of days off before the situation is assessed again at the beginning of the week.

He said: “It has been business as usual. We were training today and got word that it was cancelled.

“We have given the players a few days off and we can sit down on Monday maybe and see where we go from there.

“It is unprecedented. I have never experienced this in my career, everyone is in the same boat.

“The gym is here for the players to use if they want and then we will try to get to business as usual.

“We were praying for the game and looking forward to it. We understand but we are bitterly disappointed.”
