Celtic should be champions if league cannot continue: Lennon

LONDON (AFP) – Celtic manager Neil Lennon expects his side to be declared Scottish Premiership champions in the ‘Armageddon’ scenario that the league cannot be completed due to the spread of coronavirus.

All matches in Scotland were postponed for an indefinite period on Friday to help halt the spread of COVID-19.

Celtic were due to visit Rangers in the Old Firm derby looking to build on their 13-point lead at the top of the table. Rangers have a game in hand against St Johnstone, but the rest of the teams in the Scottish Premiership have just eight games left to play.

“Certainly, if you are talking about the Armageddon of the league being cancelled or stopped, it should go on the average points total which would make us clear champions and rightly so,” said Lennon.
