Rangers & Celtic May Join Proposed EPL2

Rangers & Celtic May Join Proposed EPL2


English Premier League 2 - Bolton Chairman Phil Gartside has put together a blueprint that may revolutionise English football, forever.

In essence, Gartside is proposing two leagues of 18 with promotion and relegation. In addition, and if they were lucky enough the proposed EPL2 may invite for two teams from Scotland, probably Rangers and Celtic just to add a little spice to the league.

Sunday Mirror Sport has been given a full briefing on the document, which is being backed by at least seven Premier League clubs as well as key Football League clubs who are keen to be part of the new breakaway.

A prominent Championship chairman, whose club have been in the Premier League, said...

'Given the severe financial restraints in the Football League it would be madness not to consider the proposals?'

Would you be in favour of having a Premier League 2? What about playing Rangers and Celtic a couple of times a year, good or bad idea?

A lot of clubs would never allow Celtic in their league as they would be shooting themselves in the feet, enough said.

Lets put this to bed shall we? The SFA would never allow any Scottish club into a foreign league, or they can kiss kiss goodbye to their autonomy and therefore their National team. End of story

On that particular point, there's nothing stopping Celtic resigning from the SFA. If the opportunity was there and the money right, there's no reason to expect that wouldn't happen. The issue is that Celtic would not be able to qualify for Europe through the English system, same problem Cardiff, Swansea and Wrexham have (though to a far lesser extent!)
