Celtic and Rangers colts plans have been put to bed by Premiership and Championship teams as proposals look dead in the water again (Daily Mail).

Discussions have taken place over the restructuring of the SPFL league system, plans for reconstruction shot down last summer. This time around, Celtic and Rangers colts teams were fully in the mix.

Both Celtic and Rangers were to put forward £1.5 million each to get their ‘B’ teams into League Two next season, along with a team each from the Lowland and Highland Leagues. But before being put to a vote for clubs, it has to have some chance of passing.

Some Premiership and Championship teams have stood opposed. Aberdeen, Dundee United and Hibs have raised concerns with plans while Dundee and Hearts have also highlighted issues. An 11-1 majority vote from Premiership clubs is needed for proposals to pass, so the Celtic and Rangers colts plans are back to the drawing board.
