It looks like there are only two clubs in Scotlands top flight that are opposed to calling the season as it stands. Hearts and Rangers. Hearts have some grounds for an argument, they are in a battle to avoid the drop, if the season had not have been interrupted they have every right to argue they could have stayed up, despite been rotten all season.
The Ibrox team have no argument, the chances of them stopping Celtic winning their 9th title in a row were at 1.13% according to a report the BBC had done last week. The majority of the rest of the clubs want and need the season to be called so they can get onto planning for next season and do what they can to generate revenue again.
The latest person to have their say on the matter is Aberdeen’s Dave Cormack. He feels it is only a matter of time before the SPFL are forced to call the league as it stands. The Dons chairman does not see any way this season can be finished on the field of play when he spoke with The Sun.
“The best description I’ve heard of this pandemic is from the Governor of New York. He described it as a 300-mile wide, category five hurricane that’s going at three miles an hour and hasn’t hit land yet.
“So we have a lot to go through with society in the next few weeks. But look, if it’s impossible to get games played in late July or early August, I don’t think we will have any choice but to call the league.”
It feels with each passing day the pressure is on Neil Doncaster and the SPFL to carry out the wishes of the majority of clubs rather than pandering to two.
