Talks have taken place between UEFA, the European Club Association and the European Leagues – who represent SPFL clubs including Rangers – with the commitment to finishing up the season by June 30th remaining in place.

Sky Sports reports that “football bodies maintained their ambition, agreed last week, to complete all domestic and European club competitions by the end of June 30, ‘should the situation improve and resuming playing be appropriate and prudent enough.'”

The Champions League Final, Europa League Final and Women’s Champions League Final have all been postponed while UEFA are considering making changes to competitions in a bid to get them completed.

Euro 2020 and the Olympic Games have also been pushed back by 12 months so it seems unlikely that clubs will come anywhere close to meeting UEFA’s deadline.

Rangers still have a Europa League clash with Leverkusen to play, as well as nine Scottish Premiership fixtures, but the expectation is that it will be August at the earliest before football resumes in Scotland.

The Gers have voiced their opposition to hand the title Celtic if the season is ended early and the SPFL are going to have to make a decision sooner rather than later over how they are going to end the season.
