Celtic are on the verge of securing record-equaling ninth league title in a row, however, the Scottish Premiership is postponed due to coronavirus. 

Currently, the Hoops are waiting for a decision from UEFA. 

Neil Lennon’s side are 13 points clear at the top of the table with only eight games remaining. 

But what will happen if UEFA will decide to call of the season? 

Back in 1999, the First League of Yugoslavia was stopped after 24 games and 10 games remaining because of NATO bombing the country. 

Partizan Belgrade were on top of the table with two points above second-placed Obilic. 

UEFA and the Yugoslavian Football authorities declared Partizan the 1998/99 Champions. 

According to  Sunday Mail, European football authorities had to rule on such a situation. 

However, Scottish football chiefs and European football’s governing body still yet to make the decision. 

Moreover, the same scenario would also be preferable for Liverpool, as they are topping the Premier League table.
