Scottish Premiership Update: Celtic crowned champions for 2019/20 season

The Scottish Premiership season has been ended with Celtic being named champions for a ninth successive season.

At a meeting between top-flight clubs last week it was agreed to terminate the campaign as it is believed there is not enough time to complete this season and also start the new one on time.

Scottish football cannot restart until June 10 and the Scottish Professional Football League has ratified the decision to end the campaign.

This means Celtic are champions for the ninth season in a row, as they were 13 points clear of second-place Rangers when football was suspended due to coronavirus.

Motherwell finishes third while Hearts are relegated as they were five points from safety at the time of football’s suspension.

The Tynecastle Park outfit and Rangers are said to be the two clubs opposed to the curtailment of the Premiership season.
