Celtic and Rangers may be keen to quit SPFL for Premier League after major development - pundit

Celtic and Rangers may be open to quitting the Scottish Premiership and joining the Premier League, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England forward admitted it may leave the rest of the Scottish pyramid struggling.

The Daily Mail reported earlier this month (6 August) that a new court case could open the door for Celtic and Rangers to quit the Scottish Premiership and join a cross-border league.

Luxembourgian club Minnows FC Swift Hesperange have filed a lawsuit against Uefa and the Luxembourg Football Federation as they were stopped joining a proposed Benelux league with Belgian and Dutch sides.

Lawyer Jean-Louis Dupont who was behind the Bosman ruling is working on the case and will ask a judge to refer the case to the Court of Justice of the European Union

“I think they [Celtic and Ranger] would do well in the Premier League, they’d stay up in the Premier League but I don’t think they’d finish in the top-10,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whtiley.

“Maybe it’s something that they look at in the future.

“There are a lot of positives that come from it but what would that mean for the Scottish leagues? Would it be fair on them? That’s a tough one.

“I’m sure it’s something Celtic and Rangers would like to do, try the Premier League.”

Celtic are set to play Champions League group stage football for the first time this season in five years.

Rangers will join them if they progress past PSV in their two-legged play-off game later this month.
