Paul Robinson fears Scottish football would “collapse” if Rangers and Celtic joined the English pyramid.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Spurs and Leeds United goalkeeper said “it would be amazing” if the Old Firm joined the Premier League and said it would “massively benefit” the competition.

The Sun claim both Rangers and Celtic are wanted as part of a new-look British league after the European Super League debacle.

As quoted by Sky Sports, West Ham manager David Moyes has backed the idea and is proposing the Premier League be split into two divisions ‘Premier League I’ and ‘Premier League II’ to accommodate the Scottish sides.

Robinson has reservations about the prospect of a British League and claimed “a lot of politics” would be involved.

“It would massively benefit the Premier League but it would do an enormous amount of damage to the Scottish leagues,” he told Football Insider.

“Without Rangers and Celtic that league does not stand for a lot financially. It is not even that lucrative financially now. If they left it could potentially collapse.

“I do not think taking them out of their leagues is going to be beneficial for Scottish football.


“It would be amazing to have them in the Premier League but it would be to the detriment of Scottish football. They would have to do something with that in mind.

“There would be a lot of politics involved were it ever to happen.”
