Scottish Premiership clubs are said to be willing to give Celtic and Rangers the green light to leave the SPFL for a British Super League (The Sun).

Celtic and Rangers are wanted as part of an effort to reform the English Premier League. It comes in the wake of the ‘big six’s’ retreat from European Super League plans which have crumbled under intense club, fan and media pressure.

Those clubs involved – Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur – are convinced change needs to happen and they are willing to offer Celtic and Rangers the chance to come south of the border. FIFA and UEFA have given it their backing according to the report.

This would have a huge impact on the rest of Scottish football but it’s said that clubs in the Premiership would be ‘willing to wave goodbye’ to Celtic and Rangers if they were to head south. This is because it would open up the realistic possibility to win the Scottish Premiership title alongside qualification for the Champions League.

A source said: “Whether or not the Super League was going to happen, we all feel that the Premier League has to be changed and improved. It is time we opened it up to Rangers and Celtic. That would make sense for everyone.”
