The Scottish Premier League, Scotland’s top domestic football tournament, has been declared closed due to a coronavirus. The league was suspended on March 13. Finally, with the consent of the 12 teams in the league, the Scottish Championship was declared over on Monday (May 18). At the same time, the name of the champion team has also been announced.
As a result of the end of the league, Celtic has been declared the champion. They were 13 points ahead of their nearest rival Rangers with 80 points from 30 matches before the game was suspended. Celtic won the title for the ninth time in a row.
However, the title is determined on the basis of points per match, not directly on the basis of points. Celtic was the best with 2.667 points per match.
Meanwhile, Celtic manager Neil Lennon is keeping an eye on the ten-time champion for the ninth time in a row. For the third time, a team has won the title nine times in a row in the Scottish League.
So the team’s coach Lennon wants to take the title to another height by winning the title ten times in a row.
“Our goal this season was to win the title for the ninth time in a row,” he said. We succeeded there. Now we will land for Mission 10 next season. Fans want us to be the first team to win the title ten times in a row. We will try to reflect their wishes. ”
Neil Lennon says leading Celtic to their ninth title in a row is his best achievement in football.
