[Football] Strachan wants Euro league


 Share

Recommended Posts

Celtic manager Gordon Strachan believes the club need to be playing regularly outside Scottish borders to eliminate sectarianism.

Both Celtic and Rangers have shown a strong interest in joining the English leagues, and Strachan believes it would be a beneficial move on many levels.

The 50-year-old suggests a European league is more likely to materialise, given the vehement objection of Barclays Premiership clubs to the Old Firm being allowed to join their ranks.

But Strachan said: "If we could get into a British league, I don't just think it would help us financially, it would also help this West of Scotland thing we have to live with.

"I often think how exciting it would be to have Manchester United, Arsenal or Chelsea coming to Parkhead.

"Sometimes you hear our people singing the IRA stuff, but I think all that would go if we were in a bigger league.

"It would enlarge the scene, provide more breathing space and people would get on with their lives.

"People from the outside looking in would no longer say to some Old Firm fans, 'Are you guys going to grow up ... are youse all mad?"'

Strachan suggests as many as 50 leading clubs could be involved if the long-mooted European league does become a reality.

He added: "It will happen and the sponsors would flock to it. I really think it's going to happen."

Thoughts?...I would like to see Celtic leave Scotland because at the moment its only them winning it...

Strachan can do one.

The thing is though...Celtic and Rangers would just expect to walk straight into the Premiership.

They should start off in the conference, otherwise it would be unfair on all the other teams. You can bet your bum though that they will sack off the idea of coming to England if we told them they had to start in the conference :p

Anyway, I want Everton to go in the Dutch Eredivisie...just to see them still win nothing :D

I agree with you Martyn that should they join the league than they should do so from the bottom up.

Although a European Superleague would be great to watch and for TV revenues, it'd cost a fortune for away games, players won't simply be flying a couple of hundred miles to play teams, they'd be flying thousands every week.

Stupid idea really.

He's just gutted that there's nothing in that league.
