Queens Park Rangers boss Mark Warburton has revealed he would be behind a move that saw Celtic and Rangers compete against English teams, although he can’t see it happening.
After a hectic week in the football world, there has been plenty of talk about reforming leagues, and it was suggested that a British Super League could be created that would see the Glasgow pair join.
And, speaking to TalkSPORT, Warburton, who has managed Rangers in the past, confirmed he would support it from a sporting perspective, even if he recognises it’s highly unlikely.
“For me I’d love to see it at some time. I’d love to see it – but it would have to be an outcome that suits and compliments everyone for sure. That’s just my personal opinion.
“Will it happen? I don’t think so. Not yet. But it’s certainly one going forward if we see major changes to the European leagues it is one that would undoubtedly attract much interest.”
Warburton’s focus now will be on his QPR side continuing their fine form when they take on already promoted tomorrow.
Have any of these 22 players ever been in Celtic’s academy?
Having managed one side of the Glasgow giants previously, Warburton knows first hand just how big the clubs are and what they would add to the leagues in terms of support and excitement from a football perspective.
However, he also outlined the issues that they would cause, and you can be sure that just dropping them in the top tier would understandably not go down well!
It’s certainly something that causes debate, but, like Warburton says, it’s hard to see it happening for so many reasons.
