Borna Barisic has come to terms with Celtic’s title win.

The Ibrox defender has been back in Croatia since football was suspended with Celtic confirmed as champions last week following a vote by all 42 SPFL clubs.

Steven Gerrard and Stewart Robertson went on the record to say that the 2019/20 season should be played to a finish but a week after the SPFL ended the season there hasn’t been a single statement out of Ibrox.

On Saturday Celtic staged an online party to celebrate their title win with Barasic the first player inside Ibrox to comment on the league being decided.

He told The Sun:

I would have liked the league to have been played to a conclusion. Yes, we were 13 points behind Celtic, but as long as there was a mathematical chance to catch them, there was hope but if this interruption is better for people’s health, then so be it.

I don’t think my club Rangers voted to end the championship. We certainly wanted to continue the league, to play on, although admittedly I’m not one hundred percent sure truthfully whether Rangers voted for the break or not but the clubs took a vote and that’s it.

I wasn’t aware Hearts were taking legal action, but of course they still had a chance of getting themselves out of the relegation places.

At the new year there was just two points between the two Glasgow clubs with Celtic having played a game extra.

Since returning from their winter break in Dubai Neil Lennon’s side picked up 28 out of 30 points while across the city Barasic and his team mates have floundered, winning just 17 points from 10 matches.
