Noone has any idea what's going to happen. The only thing we know for sure is there is absolutely not a chance in hell they'll be made to forfeit a match. They'd allow them to postpone and humiliate themselves with a paper thin excuse that noone will buy before they'll make them forfeit a match.

All while playing the victim card and lying through their teeth.

Travel Guidance 31. Where training or competition has been approved through the ‘Resumption of Performance’ sport process athletes and their coaches and/or support staff are exempt from Scottish Government Travel restrictions where they are travelling to or from the authorised activity. Exemptions do not apply otherwise.

The activity was always authorised. The conduct whilst on the activity breached protocalls laid out by the JRG.

Right so done a bit of digging on this with reference to the situation at Kilmarnock and St Mirren (apparently, they have forums!)

So first port of call is obviously the government, who will need to confirm if the trip falls under elite sports training (difficult due to the photographic evidence this wasn't the sole purpose). It looks likely that they will do so and the game will be okay to go ahead from their point of view.

The next problem would then be the team they need to play. If the 10 player situation is true, then they would need to play the game, providing they meet the minimum criteria for a team, which is 8 players, including 1 goalkeeper. This would have to be within their first team playing bubble. They can only bring in youth players should they have time to be tested and brought into the bubble, which I don't think they will have. This is the reason St Mirren and Kilmarnock couldn't field youth players – no time to make the necessary arrangements. They also couldn't meet the minimum criteria and were forced to abandon the match. (St Mirren ended up getting a hearts goalie on emergency loan for the subsequent games due to the fact they had time) So c*ltics ability to play the game will be dependent on the number of players that need to isolate and if this takes them below the 8 players. I think with 10, they would be okay due to the size of their first team squad.

Now, if they can't meet the 8 player criteria and can't bring in youth in time (assuming here they also can't field a full youth squad as they won't meet the testing criteria for the SPFL games) the game would have to be abandoned/postponed. Further to this, Killie and St Mirren were then given the losses and fined due to having breached guidelines after investigation. Again, it would be hard for c*ltic to argue against this as there is photographic evidence showing they have broken guidelines and their first team coach has openly admitted there were lapses – even if their trip was allowed, they should still be operating in accordance with guidelines. The only way they would get out of 3-0 loss is if there was a complete u-turn by the SPFL.

Obviously the latter would be great, but based on what we’ve heard so far, I reckon they will field a depleted squad. How depleted is the question.

If not enough first team players, the entire youth squad would have to play like Villa and Derby this week.

I agree. but if you look through the conditions then question still need to be ask about how they got clearance from the SFA/SPFL..

I've updated my last post.

It's going to be interesting to see what goes down. 

If they are allowed to postpone, teams like Kilmarnock and St Mirren will have much stronger cases for thier appeals against forfeit. 

I think it's going to end up going ahead but scum fc having to put out a weakened side.

22. You’ll also need to provide written evidence from a United Kingdom or Scottish sport national governing body of your status as an international performance (elite) sportsperson or international ancillary sportsperson who has travelled to a non-exempt country or territory to compete, train or otherwise participate in a performance (elite) sports event, and that you will be continuing those activities on your return.

23. You will not need to self-isolate for 10 days, but you must observe the Resumption of Performance Sport Guidance.

24. Current Specified Competitions and Countries and Territories exempt from the requirement to self-isolate, can be found here.

Point 23. What is the guidance?

Rapid swab tests bring back results in less than 2 hours, so no excuse there.

 

Thats what we have been using for the lorry drivers that were stuck down in Kent trying to get home for that Christmas thing that was "cancelled" a couple of days before. Oh also the excuse "we were given the go ahead in Nov" is fucking bollocks. I was going to Glasgow for the New Year and then back to work but hey i'm still here in Kent.

19. Plans prior to travel should take account of any Scottish /UK Government 
regulations on return to the UK, such as a required isolation period. 
20. The COVID-19 Officer and COVID-19 Medical Officer responsible for the 
Performance (Elite) Sports Organisation or Individual(s) should liaise with the 
organisers of any competition to be held outside the UK in a sufficiently timely 
manner in order to comply with the entry requirements of the country, including 
any quarantine / isolation regulations.
21. The travelling performance (elite) athletes and support staff will be expected to 
abide by the guidelines and regulations of the host country and organisation 
for the duration of their stay in the host country.

If UAE have same social distancing guidelines etc that we have in the UK then they fall foul surely?

"Someone on another site suggested that he should be made to present the trophy to Rangers at the end of the season . Seems fair."

Desmond, Lawwell and Lennon should be presented with league winners medals by Sevco, plus seats for life in the club deck and complimentary Cas ore gear. The traitorous trio have done more than anyone to help the huns
