Red Star Belgrade are eleven points clear at the summit of Serbia’s top league and are now hoping that the league will follow suit of decisions in Scotland and the standings now will be official.

UEFA was rumoured to have punished leagues for calling a halt to the procedure early, but now they say they have no problem with leagues outwith the so-called ‘Big Five’ from doing so.

There is a UEFA summit – via video link – of all the leagues on the 23 April 2020, which is when they are excepted to tie up the leagues and crown champions. That will crown Celtic champions and win nine-in-a-row, and also see Hearts relegated unless they can restructure the league.

Belgrade CEO, Zvezdan Terzic, said: “There are three scenarios available to leagues like ours. The first is to hope we can eventually continue the season, the second is to declare it null and void and the third is to do what Scotland and Belgium have done and end the season now.

“We have been in constant contact with UEFA. Scotland and Belgium have argued their case with sound reason and I know UEFA will now accept it.

“Bigger leagues will insist on finishing their championships, but that is because their income is hugely reliant on TV money.

“Here, we need to align with the measures taken by Serbian FA and Serbian Government. The lack of available dates is not our fault.

“I wish we could be called the champions in the normal way, but it is not up to us.”
