    10/07/2020 : Football in Scotland has been released from the Covid-19 ban on sports and the SPFL Season 2020-2021 is scheduled to start on Saturday August 1st. This will only be the SPL to start with and in stadia sans fans.
    The lower Divisions are currently planning to start in October.
    Pre-season 'bounce' games (training friendlies) have already started and Rangers beat Hamilton Academical 2-1 today.

    In view of this it makes sense to open the thread for Season 2020-2021. The 2019-2020 thread is still active as there are overlapping games. These are the Scottish FA Cup and Rangers' Euro games, which I will cover in the 2019-2020 thread.

    SPL (SPFL1), Saturday 01/08/2020 : Aberdeen 0-1 Rangers

    Ryan Kent scored with Morelos the provider, leading to a comfortable win for Rangers by the sound of it (I followed this on Sportsound). Start as you mean to go on.

    07/08/2020 : Eight Aberdeen players have been affected by Covid-19, full details in the link below.
    It seems it was all Rangers' fault, if the following is anything to go by !

    All eight men were in an Aberdeen bar - linked to the city's Covid-19 spike - on Saturday after the loss to Rangers.

    the technology works tomorrow !
    I will update all the SPL results after Rangers' game has finished.

    BTW, SSN are reporting today that Lille's interest in Alfredo Morelos has waned. Apparently they are now interested in signing Ghent striker Jonathan David instead.

    SPL (SPFL1), Sunday 09/08/2020 : Rangers 3-0 St Mirren

    A comfortable enough win today, thanks to a 1st half OG and a 2nd half brace from Morelos. One thing that bothered me though was needless passing by our players around in and about our box ... it just gives chances to the opposition.
    I broke off from typing this for the post-match analysis, which was followed by SG's post-match interview ... 'let's be less cute around our box'.


    SPL matches, 08-09/08/2020 :

    Saturday 8th August
    Hamilton Academical 0-1 Ross County
    Livingston 1-4 Hibernian
    Motherwell 0-1 Dundee United
    St Johnstone v Aberdeen - Postponed - Covid-19

    Sunday 9th August
    Kilmarnock 1-1 Celtic
    Rangers 3-0 St Mirren

    Big day for your boys. After midweek exploits it could have been a banana-skin but instead Celtic are the first to drop points.

    11/08/2020 : Celtic's Boli Bolingoli - another footballer with his brains in his boots. Due to his selfishness and stupidity he has caused the cancellation of Celtic's matches this week. Aberdeen's matches are cancelled too, following their players' breach of the Covid-19 guidelines last week. If there are any more such infringements then the entire 2020-2021 Season could be stopped, details in the link below.

    SPL (SPFL1), Wednesday 12/08/2020 : Rangers 3-0 St Johnstone

    Another comfortable win, that puts Rangers top of the SPL. The goals came from Barisic (superb free kick), Kent and in the 2nd half, Aribo. However, there was still a lot of the back and sideways passing, although this time away from our box.
    SG in his post-match interview was not happy about this dithering play either.


    SPL matches, 11-12/08/2020 :

    Tuesday 11th August
    Dundee United 0-1 Hibernian

    Wednesday 12th August

    SPL (SPFL1), Sunday 16/08/2020 : Livingston 0-0 Rangers

    Two points dropped by Rangers from a display described on Sportsound as 'toothless'. This is hard for me to judge without having seen the game. I just hope we are not embarking on a repeat of the second half of last Season !

    SPL (SPFL1), Saturday 22/08/2020 : Rangers v Kilmarnock, KO 15:00 hours.

    20/08/2020 : I have been waiting for Rangers to let us know whether we in UK/ROI will have RTV for this match, but there has been no information to date. In any event, let it be a game with goals (more than one, please) that gets Rangers back to winning ways.

    Update : Rangers v Kilmarnock is live on RTV in UK/ROI and I have purchased the match (£9.99) today.

    SPL matches, 22-23/08/2020 :
