I still think the bookmakers will surely have a big say on what goes down .Suppose they will have all calculated the best way for them to profit the most ,or the way that has  the least damage .Null and void would surely be their choice It makes it clean and they would only refund bets that were live and not lost

I would expect it to be ripped apart first with scottish media spin claiming big bad Rangers are showing a lack of dignity. 

Then it will disappear never to be spoken about again. 

Occasional Statements and being dignified don't work in the current age.

We need to go in all guns blazing. Legal action taken and confirmation we will not be backing down no matter what. 

And faces in front of cameras . Not hiding behind the sofas getting someone to do a statement . Shower of cowardly fucks

8 asterisk titles and 1 AWARDED title.
Next season back to square one imo,and one big GIRFUT. 
This will always be part of their sordid history no matter what happens in the next couple of months.

Officially they would get it mate . And they would celebrate it in the most  disingenuous  way. We all know that . That is what the scum are experts at .

No win , no game to win them the title , no title party . They would create one , probably with the help of the club . And with the backing of the media , snyde and the rebel 

Colour spreads etc etc . You can see it . Making it all official . Aye right 

The asterisk would be there though . 100% and no 9 in a row really

The SPFL have been given an ultimatum by UEFA, one that they will bow down to, upsetting their corrupt wee plan. And if UEFA force games behind closed doors then the players union must step up and refuse. The pendulum is shifting.

An exclusive for The Record no less.

Even though it’s been the same exclusive on every paper for past week.

I wrote earlier that if the scum are gifted the league, then a legal challenge was the wrong response because we would be portrayed as cold, heartless bastards driven only by the need to deny them another tainted title.

However if UEFA mean business and intend to exclude teams from leagues who don’t complete their season (ie doing exactly as the SPFL want to do apparently), then that is a game changer.

We would then have reasonable grounds for legal action, the basis being that the SPFL’s intended course of action would cost Rangers millions.

The earning potential, especially given our outstanding results in Europe, would be taken away from us (and Motherwell and the sheep) purely to award the scum the title they crave.

Now THAT would be sound justification and could not be thrown back at us as pettiness - our case is about financial loss and fuck all to do with the child rapists.

This is the missing jig saw piece.  I have said previously that any  legal action by our club would have to demonstrate detriment- anything  else  is just bluster. Depriving us of EUFA money next year is clear detriment, and as you say, a game changer.

I don’t know about that.

They've got a bulging biscuit tin allegedly so wouldn’t miss the money and their absence would allow them the “we’re losing out too, you know” escape line as they polish their new SPFL trophy.

They’d somehow be able to put together a cocktail of triumph, self-sacrifice and victimhood in a way that only they can.

Just seen the article 🤦‍♂️

I'm calling bullshit on that. If UEFA follow through, watch that lot backtrack quickly. 

What it does do but is open up a legal option for us to challenge. We can point to a loss of European money, if the SPFL decide to go against UEFA and we all get banned.

I don't think the bookies will pay out on any title, promotion or relegation betting mate so yes, I believe you'll get your money refunded 

 

Edit, other than those who are champions/relegated already.

SPFL ready to declare celtic champions and relegate Hearts as angry league bosses set to call UEFA's bluff

Confusion reigns after UEFA warned smaller nations their clubs’ participation in Europe next season is jeopardy is under threat if they call their season early.

 

The SPFL are ready to call UEFA’s bluff by sticking to their guns and declaring celtic as Premiership champs.

League bosses have reacted with ‘anger and bemusement’ to threats from Nyon to complete the domestic season - or else.

Confusion reigns after UEFA warned the smaller nations their clubs’ participation in the Champions League and Europa League next season is in jeopardy if they call their titles prematurely on the back of the Covid-19 crisis.

President Aleksander Ceferin repeated the threat on German television yesterday, even going as far as saying matches could be played behind closed doors.

UEFA maintain league campaigns can still be finished in July and August, even as Ceferin conceded it will be mid-May at the earliest before they can plan further.

Sutton blasts UEFA

 

celtic title latest

He was prompted to speak out after the Belgian league management board became the first in Europe to recommend scrapping the season by awarding its title to Club Brugge, currently 15 points ahead of Gent.

It’s understood several smaller nations are ready to throw the problem straight back at UEFA by demanding interest free loans to cover their costs until football emerges from the coronavirus pandemic.

However, that is not a stance the SPFL are willing to adopt as they forge on with plans to call the season as soon as their legal advice allows, handing celtic the title and relegating Hearts.

One source said: “UEFA are in panic mode and they’re probably the only organisation in Europe that believes this coronavirus pandemic will be over in a month and they can start planning for the weeks beyond it.

“They’ve been spooked by the Belgians because they know the financial implications from broadcasters for the big five countries if their league seasons aren’t played to a conclusion.

“UEFA’s threat to prevent clubs from smaller nations competing in their tournaments next season is farcical. The big five apart, who else are they going to invite? Teams from Belarus?

“There will be a queue of national associations taking action at the Court of Arbitration of Sport if UEFA ever follow through. They don’t know if they are coming or going.”

The SPFL wants to call the domestic leagues as soon as possible and distribute the prize money on which many clubs will rely to see them through the summer.

However, they are also anxious to avoid extending the current domestic campaign towards the autumn as it would impact on their new five year sponsorship agreement with Sky.

It’s understood BT Sport, who will exit Scottish football at the end of the season, would be due a financial clawback if the Premiership season is ended with eight games still to play.

However, the Sky deal is more lucrative and there are fears the contract could not be fulfilled if the new season didn’t formally kick off until October or November, perhaps even in an abridged format.

The SPFL source added: “There’s an implication of the payback to broadcasters. We’d only be moving the problem from one season to the next if we continued to play the current campaign beyond the summer.”

Ceferin again rounded on the Belgians and insisted the only solution is for domestic leagues to pick up where they left off once the coronavirus crisis is over, even if it’s in front of empty stands. 

He said: “The Belgians and the federations that could consider doing the same are risking participation in next year’s competition.

“Football is not the same thing without fans, but it is certainly better to play football without fans and get it back on television, rather than nothing.

“This is what people want, a little positive energy at home.

“It will probably happen in July or August. We can’t play in September or October.”

 

Scottish Football has long decided. Rangers better have their lawyers already starting legal proceedings.
