'Drive fans away' - Fans react to Rangers and Celtic Colts proposal

The SPFL have put forward a proposal to clubs that could see Rangers and Celtic field Colt teams in League Two from next season.
Berwick Rangers confirmed the details of the proposal that has been put to clubs after reports talks had been held over introducing Under-21 sides to the senior set-up.
Fans of other Scottish clubs are appalled at the proposal with accusations of pro-Old Firm bias levelled at the SPFL and – oddly – the Scottish FA as steps are taken to try and improve Scotland’s performance at international and club level.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:


Colt teams have been on and off the agenda countless times but it looks as though Scottish football might finally be pushing ahead with the idea.
Similar systems are used across European football to varying degrees with many of the world’s top players having come through some form of Colt team.
The SPFL already allow Scottish Premiership sides to field an Under-20’s team in the Challenge Cup with Rangers and Celtic both losing out in the first round of this year’s competition.
The current proposal only involves Rangers and Celtic but could be opened up to other sides to field a Colt team after the initial two-year pilot.
In other Rangers news, fans have reacted after this midfield dynamo underwent a medical to complete his switch.
