Is there another drama coming in Scottish Football, asks Largs Thistle and Ayrshire football legend George Wall...


Will the season end early, will it be declared null and void, will there be changes to the SPFL? 
All these questions have already been asked so do we go 'around the houses' again with this?
With the lower leagues including the WoSFL being paused already there must be real consideration being given to stopping early. 
In the meantime Irvine Meadow are pushing ahead with their plan for SFA licensing. They have been audited and have a list of actions that need to be addressed by mid Feb, good luck to one of my former clubs with that. 
In the SPFL it surprised me that Celtic started their game against Livingston without a recognised striker. 
Even with 13 players out I would have thought Celtic would have a young academy player that could have been given a chance.
Rangers seem to be champions elect. It would take a massive collapse for them to be caught now.
Itten is clearly an impact sub after coming off the bench to score again versus Motherwell.
Jermain Defoe also looked good when he entered the field of play and nearly scored with the Well keeper fortunately being at the right place at the right time to make the stop.
The result of the week in the SPL has got to be Ross County’s 4-1 win against Aberdeen. John Hughes seems to have had the desired effect at Dingwall after taking over as boss. Ross County face their biggest test yet at Ibrox this weekend - can they produce a shock? They have already won at Parkhead this season.
This weekend we have the semi finals of the league cup, St Johnstone v Hibs and Livingston v St Mirren. Great to see clubs outside of Celtic and Rangers doing well getting to the final stages.
On paper it looks like a Hibs v Livingston final but I have a feeling for St Mirren after their impressive 3-2 win over Rangers in the quarter finals.
Hibs ended their recent losing streak with a 2-0 win over Kilmarnock. 
It was always going to be a hard game on paper for Killie who seem to be toiling again. It just makes you realise what a great job Stevie Clarke did at Rugby Park as they have struggled to recapture the form of previous seasons under his leadership.
In England, how did Man Utd sneak up to be top of the Premier League? I never saw that coming. 
It looks like the most tight it has been for a few years however Manchester City seem to be on a roll and are sitting nicely behind United with a game in hand. United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was disappointed at the end not to get the win which is a measure of how far they have come, but will Liverpool now in fourth spot mount a challenge for the title race?
I see Wayne Rooney has decided to retire from playing after he took on the management role at Derby. Wayne was a great player. I remember his goal for Everton against Arsenal when he was 16 years of age. He really announced himself with that one and went onto have a great career. At international level I always felt England had to much expectations of him although he is their all time top scorer.
