SPFL clubs will again consider reconstruction plans today as Celtic and Rangers look to bring their colts teams into cinch League Two (Daily Mail).
Celtic and Rangers have successfully got their ‘B’ teams into the Lowland League on a strict one-season basis. But SPFL clubs will meet today to discuss whether they could move into League Two, the current arrangement being that the youth teams can’t earn promotion from the Lowland League.
The proposed 12-12-10-10 scheme would see the cinch Championship expanded by two clubs, with no relegation for one season. Two teams would be promoted from cinch League One and Two, with the vacant spaces in the latter taken up by the Celtic and Rangers colts. Reconstruction was spoken of intensely in 2020.
There is also an option to go with a 12-12-12-10 or 12-12-12-12 scheme to accommodate Lowland and Highland League clubs coming into the SPFL. Plans will be discussed today and 32 of the 42 senior clubs have to agree to the plans, but there is ‘scepticism’ in the Premiership over its merits.
