'No doubt about it' – Laudrup details the 'worst thing' that could happen to Rangers
Former Rangers player Brian Laudrup has claimed that Rangers should be handed the title if the season ends abruptly.
Steven Gerrard’s side sit 21 points clear and have just 14 league games left to play, and that has shaped Laudrup’s thinking.
The Dane expressed some strong views in his Daily Mail column on Tuesday, January 19.
“There has been a lot of talk in recent days about the Premiership stopping and the league being declared ‘null and void’,” Laudrup said.
“That would be terrible. In my opinion, it would be the worst thing that could happen.
“I think if there was a vote to curtail the league then Rangers should get the trophy.
“It’s quite clear that Rangers are comfortably top of the league right now and if the season had to stop then it should be Rangers crowned as champions. No doubt about it.”
An accurate assessment
In his column, Laudrup said some might think he’s got a Rangers bias.
However, it is almost impossible to dispute his verdict, as the Gers are nailed on for the title.
Celtic are running out of games to claw back points and given the current fiasco they’re embroiled in – as well as Neil Lennon’s latest comments – it is difficult to see them mounting a comeback.
We are firmly in the driving seat, so if the season was to end soon we would be deserved champions. After all, we are still unbeaten in the SPFL.
The risk of us losing a full invincible season doesn’t worth bearing, though, so Laudrup is right to suggest a null and void outcome would be the worst thing that could happen.
We have waited a long time to be crowned champions, and it wouldn’t be right for us not to lift the trophy in the manner that we deserve.
We wanted to play the season out last season, we want to do the same this season.
