Sadly I don't think the league will ever be able to compete again, especially with the new Premier League TV deal and the huge amount of cash that will bring even to the small English clubs.More than that, it is a massive blow to the league in terms of finances, standing and progression.
Except it hasnt been decided, and they wont lose their titles or their history (only bitter celtic fans keep claiming this). And the SPL does need them, at least the 10 other small clubs who are financially dependent on meeting the old firm are. No one buried their head, so thats nonsense, what people said is that would be a disaster for the league if it happens, because financially the rest of the clubs bar celtic are dependent on them, and the TV money. Its why several months ago the SPL were going to let the clubs vote on whether they stay in the League. Also good luck trying to expand as a league, SKY will likely not renew their money deal. The league's rep will take a hammer blow. So really you didnt tell anyone anything, if you had read what people had written ad naseum.They will start in the third division and have no history and no trophies. And whoever said Celtic will play friendlies to keep the rivalry going lol why would anyone want anything to do with them
Got what they deserve, we told you it would happen and you buried your heads in the sand and recited the 'SPL needs Rangers' 'Rangers too big for liquidation' lines
