After figures with Rangers and Celtic connections disagreed over how they believe the Premiership season should be revolved, Alex Rae and controversial pundit Michael Stewart, have now clashed on Twitter.

On Friday afternoon, Celtic manager, Neil Lennon, made it clear that he believed if the league season was ended prematurely, his side should be crowned champions as they currently sit top of the league [BBC Sport].

Since then, Chris Sutton has also backed his old club to be awarded the title [Daily Record].

However, plenty of Bears have pointed to ‘sporting integrity’ as reasoning for the season to be declared null and void, a scenario which former Gers midfielder Alex Rae came out in support of on Twitter on Saturday morning.

Stewart has subsequently responded to that tweet, agreeing in principle with Rae, but calling for those airing their opinions to drop their allegiances to either side of the Old Firm.


Rae has since hit back, though, insisting that reason and facts should ensure that the authorities don’t hand out trophies for an incomplete campaign.

Given that yesterday’s games were the first to be cancelled in Scotland, it’s still quite early to be talking about incomplete seasons.

What’s more, it seems clear that there won’t be any official updates on the potential winners and losers from any such scenario until after UEFA’s videoconference on Tuesday.

One thing is for sure, though, if the season does end early, there’s going to be uproar either way.
