West Ham United manager David Moyes has thrown weight behind a British Super League idea which could involve promotion between Scottish and English teams.

Debate over whether Celtic and Rangers could move south of the border from Scottish football as part of a British Super League has emerged in the wake of failed European Super League plans. West Ham United boss Moyes has given his opinion.

While Moyes believes this could happen, the West Ham United manager is also suggesting two Premier League’s that may involve promotion for other Scottish Clubs: “Reform is needed. The Premier League has a brilliant product, but you hear top clubs talking about too many games.

“So could we have Premier League 1 and Premier League 2? Could we have a situation where we do invite Rangers and Celtic to Premier League 2? Why can we not unite the UK? Why do we have to be England and Scotland and not unite it? Why can it not be a pyramid that allows teams in the Scottish leagues to get into Premier League 2?


“I think more money would filter down. We are in Brexit now, we have our country, so why not? If ever there was going to be a time we could have fixed football it was during the pandemic when there was a chance for clubs to get together.

“We are going to stop overspending, stop paying too much wages, stop giving agents too much money and make sure there will be clubs that are looked after as well as we can do so. But it looks like certain individuals have done the exact opposite.”
