During a meeting on Monday morning, the Scottish Professional Football League decided to end the 2019/20 campaign and hand the title to The Bhoys.
Celtic have been declared champions of the 2019/20 Scottish Premiership after the SPFL decided Monday to end the 2019/20 campaign permanently.
The decision to hand The Bhoys their 9th successive domestic title was taken based on average points per game played formula, with the bottom of the table Hearts relegated to the 2nd tier.
Celtic were leading at the top of the table by 13 points – having played a game more than 2nd placed Rangers – when the season was suspended at the start of March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Twelve Scottish top-flight clubs had agreed in a meeting last week that completing the season under current circumstances was untenable, handling the SPFL the majority vote it needed to end the heretofore suspended campaign.
Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane wants the pair of Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland to feature alongside Eden Hazard in Los Blancos front three in the 2021/22 season.

AS reports that the 1998 French World Cup winner is keen to once again assemble a much-feared front-three at Santiago Bernabeu. The report further adds that Madrid are hopeful that both the PSG and Borussia Dortmund stars will join them ahead of 2021/22 campaign.
The Spanish publication reports that if Madrid are able to assemble the front-three, Zidane would deploy Hazard on the left, Mbappe on the right and Haaland will play through the middle.
