The SPFL might be on the verge of a civil war as Celtic attended a virtual meeting consisting of the Premiership clubs to discuss the future of the season.
It is undeniable that the global pandemic has changed football as we knew it for the foreseeable future. It was just last season that the Premiership season had to be called of after 30 games were played and Celtic were crowned champions as a result of their mammoth 13 point lead at the top of the table. And it looks like the SPFL is preparing ahead of time in case they need to take a similar step this time around as well.
We might be just into the new season but the pandemic has continued to wreck havoc. The sporting bubble that players had been placed had managed to keep things under control to an extent. Of course there was the incident of Aberdeen players going to a pub and two of them testing positive afterwards, or of Boli Bolingoli’s trip to Spain. But overall, things seemed to be progressing well.
The international break has thrown all of that into doubt though. A number of players have been infected and who knows how much worse things could get when the international players return to their teams. Celtic would know that very as both Odsonne Edouard and Nir Bitton had already tested positive, while Hatem Abd Elhamed is in isolation waiting for his results.

As a result, it looks like the SPFL are already preparing in case the football season is halted again. And as reported by The Scottish Daily Mail, the Premiership clubs attended a virtual meeting on Friday and there are fears that there might be a major disagreement.
The SPFL board have put forward a resolution that will see them handed the power to decide the outcome of the league in case it is cut short again. A similar resolution was rejected by the club back in July. And it is unlikely that the resolution will get the required 75 percent majority in every division that it requires to pass.
At this point of time, all we can hope for is a full football season. For the most part, clubs have shown that they are capable of keeping things under control. It is the international break though which has produced terrible results and hopefully the responsible governing bodies will take a look at it soon.
