Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has claimed that the season must be played to its completion as the question around null and void continues to be bleated out from some corners of the game.

Scotland is in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic with lockdown restrictions being applied across the country as a result.

But elite sport has been given the go-ahead in Scotland even if League One and below have been paused for a period of three weeks.

SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster gave an exclusive interview to the Daily Record who appeared to stir the pot with an alarmist article over null and void.

Rangers fans railed against the “clickbait” article claiming it misrepresented Doncaster’s comments and Gerrard also sought to give some clarity as he discussed the issue.

“I’ve read through the interview and I think what Neil has done is put every possibility and option on the table,” said Gerrard [Sky Sports].

“My opinion on this is exactly the same as it was in March and April. For football’s sake and the sake of competition, I think everything has to try and be finished in the right way.

“I’m not saying that now because we’re sitting where we are, in terms of the competition this year, because my opinion was the same in March and April.

“That’s my hope, that’s my opinion and that will never change as long as I’m involved in the game. It would have been my opinion at 18 years old and it will be my opinion at 88.

“Football is played for a reason, and you have to finish competitions. That is my opinion.”
