King Kenny: season must not be declared null and void

As the UK steps closer and closer to the peak of Covid-19 few people's thoughts are on football. But these sorts of situations are always ripe for being taken advantage of.

Which, it seems, is what the likes of Karen Brady is doing, in suggesting that the season must be cancelled and declared void. As her club sits level on points with the relegation zone.

But Sir Kenny Dalglish disagrees, saying that that would be totally out of order and that the season must be allowed to finish, at some point.

He told the Sunday Post: "What must definitely not happen is for the 2019-20 campaign to be declared null and void. That would not be fair, and any person with football at heart would admit that would be totally out of order.

"In Scotland, would it be fair to say to the Premiership leaders, Celtic, that all of their efforts in the past nine months over 30 games count for nothing? The same would apply to Dundee United in the Championship.

"Would any person without an agenda really think it would be the most-sensible outcome to deny Liverpool their chance of winning the title after doing fantastically well in their 29 league games so far to build up a 25-point lead over Manchester City with nine games remaining?

"Of course not. Nobody can allow the hard work to count for nothing.

"So let’s do away with any of this talk, and try to use our time and energy wisely."
