Just goes to show the myth of the idea that "Celtic and Rangers are huge clubs that would be top 6 sides in the PL".
Are they fuck and would they fuck.
Celtic manager drops them like boiled shit to grab ANY PL job. Even fucking Leicester with its pit of entitled vipers playing squad.
I still 100% believe that give them a few seasons in the English premiership and both of them would def be top 8 and maybe top 6 - it is too easy for people to dismiss both Glasgow clubs as they are now, but you are comparing them with premiership clubs who in one month would earn as much as they do for a full season in Scotland. Unlike the nfl (a far more competitive sport imo), football is all about money these days, and money brings power - these clubs have massive, massive fanbases and with the premier league tv money, and their self generated income (tickets, merchandise etc), they would be competitive clubs in England for sure.
I understand why people dismiss both Glasgow clubs cos of the sectarian bullshit, and the fact they have basically dominated a 2 team league for decades. What I don't agree with is the belittling of them cos their managers and players up sticks and move down to England as soon as more money is waved in front of them - haven't we (Arsenal FC) lost many players for that same reason over the years ? In a lot of cases players and managers follow the money, and in most cases players and managers go to a club where they can challenge for the big prizes - Scottish football ticks neither boxes and that is the reality, but because it is in a commercial back water, it doesn't mean that the 2 Glasgow clubs are not huge clubs. Like I have already said, money is the only reason why those 2 clubs have fallen so far behind clubs for more lucrative leagues, and a decade of sky premier league tv money, would almost certainly have celtic in the top 7 (leaving rangers out of this equation cos they are further behind at the mo due to financial difficulties), and pushing hard for top 6
