Official: Celtic crowned champions in Scotland

The SPFL has officially ended the season and announced Celtic as the Scottish Premiership champions, with Hearts relegated.

Last week the 12 clubs agreed that the season was not to be completed and today the SPFL has announced that the average points per game played has determined the final outcome.

Celtic are still top, after leading by 13 points, while Hearts ended up four points behind Hamilton Academical at the bottom.

“The focus will now turn to how we get football up and running again safely as soon as possible,” said SPFL chief Neil Doncaster, according to BBC Sport. “Nobody should be under any illusion as to how complicated and difficult a challenge it will be to return Scottish football to normality.”
