The harsh reality IMHO, Celtic and Rangers are between bottom of the English Championship and top of League One.
I think both clubs would enhance the EPL massively if they could take part. Within a few years of EPL revenue, both clubs would be able to compete on an even playing field.
Admittedly, that would hurt the other clubs in the SPL.
But look at Wales and Cardiff/Swansea vs the rest.
Sadly, too many self interests mean it probably wont happen.

Going by recent polls the Jocks don’t want to be part of the U.K. so why should they be allowed in the Prem?

Genuinely , it is bad for the coefficient. Also genuinely I hope both rangers and Celtic qualify for Europa group stages and both qualify for knock out stages. It's important to stop these early round qualifiers .

Anyway, back to the banter, I have been hearing people say Lennon has not got a Cluj?

Thoughts...?

No surprises. We are not a CL side any more.

As a Scotland fan and hoping scotish clubs like Celtic, Rangers and Aberdeen doing well is very important for the national team.

One of the big flaws in Scotish football is youth development. They don't do that well. We know they cant compete financially but other countries with the same size like Belgium, Netherlands and Swizerland are developing good young players.

No patience, no collective will.

In saying that, some players have come through recently, but generally, the game up here is too self-centred and refuse to look to the future good of the game.

We do develop good young players up to a point. Scotland are still well represented at youth level. Rangers youth teams did pretty well in the European tournaments and match programmes. I'm sure Celtic are similar.

There is something missing though because these players don't go on to make the jump to first team level.

Don't know what it is but it's a question for someone to answer. Why our youth players are competitive yet mostly don't make the step up?

Answer is probably buckfast

Lennon was at fault for last night, plain and simple. What message does it send to Boli in August when he's dropped for the most important game of the season when the manager puts a midfielder in his place whilst weakening midfield. Why is big Julian not getting a start, £10m worth of newly acquired defensive talent benched, also think Celtic should bring back big Fraser Forster in goal, guys surplus to requirements at Southampton and was the best keeper I've seen at Celtic park in the last 20+ years! Sad sad night, appointment of Lennon was hugely underwhelming and lazy by the board, under ambition is a killer...

I reckon the reason youth players don't kick in is the fact that Rangers and Celtic can't afford to give then much game time unless they're exceptional talents.

It's all about the demands of the fans.
