Rangers in behind-the-scenes talks with SPFL chiefs over Unethical move - Ibrox sources
Rangers chiefs are lobbying Scottish football chiefs every day to ensure Celtic are not awarded the title without another ball being kicked, Football Insider has learned.
A decision could be made tomorrow regarding the destiny of the title as well as relegation and promotions from the leagues north of the border.
The SPL is set to meet in 24 hours after Uefa announced yesterday it has postponed Euro 2020 until 2021 and urged individual nations to complete their domestic leagues by 30 June.
Rangers released a statement on Monday to reveal their public stance is that the “final standings can only be confirmed when all games have been completed” and “any attempt to finish the season with a significant amount of games still to play, impacts upon the integrity of sport in Scotland”.
Ibrox sources have told Football Insider that club chiefs have also been active behind the scenes to keep the pressure on the SPFL, which runs all the professional Scottish leagues and cups.
Managing director Stewart Robertson has made it clear that Rangers believe it would be “unethical” for Celtic to be given the title before the season is fully complete and all 38 matches played.
