Lowland League clubs will vote this Monday on whether or not to parachute Celtic and Rangers ‘B’ teams into the division for the 2021/22 season (Daily Mail).

Clubs in the fifth tier of Scottish football have been told that admitting Celtic and Rangers youth sides into the division would help them recover from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. A discussion on the pros and cons will be held this Monday.

Then after that, clubs will be asked for their final verdict on whether or not introduce Celtic and Rangers ‘B’ teams into the Lowland League. The Glasgow pair will play £25,000 each to gain access to the division.

 

Previous attempts to introduce colt teams to the lower leagues have proven unsuccessful, several SPFL clubs showing opposition to admitting Celtic and Rangers colts into League Two. Currently, ‘B’ teams play in the Challenge Cup alongside teams beneath the Scottish Premiership, plus selected English, Northern Irish and Welsh outfits.
