It looks as if the European Super League has fallen flat on his face -but St Johnstone manager Callum Davidson wonders what could be if Celtic and Rangers did similar.

England’s top six have backed down from plans to breakaway from the domestic game south of the border alongside Italian and Spanish teams in a European Super League. Proposals have been shot down in 48 hours after backlash from the football community, but breakaway chat involving Celtic and Rangers isn’t new to Scottish football fans.

For years the prospect of Celtic and Rangers joining the English football pyramid has been floated, but Davidson hopes everyone can stay on board in the SPFL: “There is always a fear of teams breaking away from their leagues, which is basically where the bread and butter is and where the supporters can watch the game.

“For me, it’s a really difficult one. Is it right? I don’t know. I don’t really know the answer to that. I think if they took it up here in Scotland, and Rangers and Celtic decided to leave, I think it would cause a massive gap in Scottish football. I can only really relate it to that.”
