There have been calls for the title to be handed to Celtic if the season has to be cancelled, with fears football won’t return until at least August.

McAllister, though, feels it doesn’t matter when football has to start up again, the season should be finished.

He told the Scottish Sun: “I don’t see any other way. We have got to finish the leagues somehow. But I realise there are a lot of: ‘What ifs’. Does the season get shortened when we eventually get back?

“With the Euros now next summer, you could have guys playing football for two years non-stop to catch up. What happens about contracts that are running out in the next few months?

“But you would take all the problems just to get the current season finished.”
