Celtic have been crowned SPFL champions for the ninth successive season. The title comes after an abrupt end to the season due to COVID-19. Neil Lennon’s men sat 13 points clear of their nearest rivals, Rangers before the stoppage in March.
The way the season has been decided is based on a points per game basis. The only change to the league is St Johnstone over take Hibernian from seventh to sixth. Hearts have been relegated as they sat four points adrift of safety. Celtic as a club feel they’re a deserved winners, a view that their CEO Peter Lawwell was quick to express when he told BBC Sport;
“We are champions for a reason,
“Under Neil’s guidance, we have produced performances of the highest quality. We have produced exciting, attacking, winning football. We have played the Celtic way and won the Celtic way.”
The next step for the SPFL is getting their teams prepared for next season and ensuring that any football played is with the correct procedures in place.
