FORMER Rangers boss Ally McCoist reckons the SPFL should go ahead with a potential Celtic v Rangers title clincher – but only if they get the backing of the police.
The league bosses are expected to release the post-split fixtures within the next 24 hours, but they appear keen to avoid pairing Brendan Rodgers’ side – who need just three more points to clinch their seventh successive title – and the Ibrox side.
McCoist said: “As for me personally? I wouldn’t have a problem with it as when it comes to Old Firm games, you could play it at two o’clock in the morning out in the back garden and it would still have the same appeal to me.
“The fact of the matter is that there are people far more qualified than me to talk about it and make decisions on it. Sadly, that is the police.
“I don’t see everything that goes on around Old Firm games, so the correct people to make that decision would be the powers-that-be and if the police decide the game can get played, I’m happy with it.
“If not, and they’d rather play it two weeks later, then I’m also happy with that.”
