Why couldn’t the sfa and spfl just have held on for another few weeks before ending the season. We could have started in June like Premier League and finished the season properly. Then we wouldn’t have to listen to the sh1te every day since from them cheating low life tax dodging zombies

They still would have found a way

Yeah...on that Asterisk issue a fella made a good point yesterday when he said about the year Rangers and Dunbarton (I think was the team) actually shared the title even though Dunbarton had a superior goal difference...

Despite the Sons' superior goal difference of seven, rules at the time stated a play-off would decide the fate of the league flag.

But after the match finished 2-2, and no extra-time or penalty shoot-out planned, the Championship was shared for the only time in its history.

The outcome has not been lost on Celtic fans who have this week heard Gers rivals play down their nine-in-a-row triumph, with many claiming the triumph has an asterisk due to the SPFL season being called early.

Neil Lennon's side did of course have a 13 point lead with eight games left to play and were on track for a quadruple Treble.

Off course there will be an asterix even if supporters may not like it.

You lads get some up tight about it.

Off course Celtic would have won the league but the simple facts are the league was cancelled early, meaning there has to be an asterix.

Its pretty simple.

rangers fans will grasp onto this forever and any sane person knows that Celtic are the true winners but it does come with an asterix due to the league finishing early through no fault of Celtics

You're the muttonhead who keeps going on about the mythical asterisk existing in some form or another, either  at present time or in some unknown time in the future.

But the asterisk has not been added on, it does not exist now and there is no chance it will be added on after the fact becasue it does not fit any criteria.
The only letter/symbol added on after Celtic's name is   C for champion, just like PSG.

But let the imaginary asterisk continue to exist in your head, however there is no process whereby what you think exists is somehow magically transformed into something of substance.

But what is the purpose of the asterisk? It denotes a footnote. And only in history books. In this case not that Celtic weren't champions but that the season ended early.
Look at any football history book, an asterisk can show a lot of things. Maybe a team won a championship on GD or a championship was shared or a team was promoted or relegated after a playoff or any other reason. The history books won't say Celtic wouldnt have won the league or didn't deserve to win the league.
So there is no denegration of the achievement asterisk or no asterisk. The implication from some is that it is a lesser achievement. In fact it is probably one of the most satisfying considering the positions at the end of December and the fact it meant 9iar.

So i'm assuming this guy signed as his contract was up and BR had no say in the deal? or maybe he's rank and BR thought it was good tactics sending him to Sevco?


Rangers sign defender from Leicester City on pre-contract. Calvin Bassey can play at left-back or in central defence
Defender Calvin Bassey has signed a pre-contract to join Rangers from Leicester City, the Ibrox club have announced. The 20-year-old has agreed a four-year contract and will move to Ibrox when the transfer window opens. Rangers say Bassey can play at left-back and in central defence.

"There was a lot of clubs interested in Calvin and for us it's pleasing to secure the services of another young talent," said manager Steven Gerrard. "He's a strong and dynamic athlete who is very much the modern day full-back. He's left-footed, physically powerful and enjoys driving forward and is certainly equipped to thrive in the combative nature of Scottish football." And Bassey added: "When I entered talks with Rangers, I knew this club was right for me.

"Of course I am thankful for everything Leicester has done for me and I am now very excited about working under Steven Gerrard and his coaching team to continue my progression."

Who knows...Clearly loans as they needed a loan of £10m to finish last season. That will only go on for so long before it catches up with them. Stop the ten at all costs...
