Celtic skipper Scott Brown has aired his opinion about the threat the coronavirus has posed to leagues across the world, especially the SPFL, which the veteran insists they should be crowned worthy champions if the virus threatens to end the League prematurely.
Celtic are 13 points adrift their bitter rivals; Rangers on the Scottish league table, as they prepare to make a trip to the Ibrox side to face Rangers on Sunday as the Hoops pursue a ninth consecutive league title.
The SPFL and other leagues across Europe could be forced to abandoned or suspended or games played behind closed doors as the number of cases of the coronavirus continues to be on the increase.
The Midfielder revealed that “if the games come to an abrupt end, it should remain as it is. We are obviously in a high position, but we need to stay focus on the game at hand against rangers on Sunday”.
“The most important thing is to make sure everybody is okay, safe and sound as we try to achieve our aims and objectives.”
“Football is our passion and work, and we still want to play and win as much as many games we can with our fans witnessing it or not”
It will probably be a sad thing if the rivalry match is played behind closed doors as it will make the club lose revenues in tickets and also deprive the fans of watching the games. The Scottish FA must try to manage the situations well, including the fixtures so that it helps everybody.
The deadly COVID ’19 virus has seen high profile games in italy, and some European games played behinds closed doors, especially the Serie A which has to suspend totalling activities till the 3rd of April 2020.
