Fans across the country have been left unamused by the recent update that Celtic and Rangers ‘B’ teams could enter the Lowland League next season.

The topic of colt teams in the pyramid system has long been a thorny issue but now they have taken a big step forward. Celtic and Rangers ‘B’ teams have entered formal discussions about entering the Lowland League on a one-season basis from next term.

Clubs would earn £50,ooo from the move while there could be the added incentive of more sponsorship and live-streaming purchases with their involvement. Clubs in League Two have previously refuted requests to put Celtic and Rangers colts sides into the SPFL pyramid.

But they could be set to enter at Lowland League level, Premiership ‘B’ teams currently competing in the Challenge Cup alongside Championship, League One and League Two teams as well as selected opponents from England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The recent update has split opinion.
