CELTIC and Rangers are being targeted to join an all BRITISH League.

The Old Firm look a promising proposition as the Premier League look for a revamp following the spectacular fall-out from the so-called Euro Super League plan.

Although England’s Big Six of the two Manchester clubs, United and City, London’s trio of Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs and Liverpool have beaten a hasty retreat from their part in the sensational set-up, there is still a conviction the top flight across the border requires a revamp.

Top of the list of plans being actively discussed is an offer to the Parkhead and Ibrox club to be included in proposals, according to an exclusive report in the Scottish Sun.

Unlike the ESL shambles, the latest idea of an enlarged Premier League including the Glasgow giants would be universally backed by governing world soccer bodies FIFA and UEFA and also the UK Government.

It is believed both clubs would be receptive of the move which has been proposed many times over the past couple of decades. Their inclusion is believed to create a spike in interest from fans across the world, sponsors and broadcasters.

Even the pair’s SPL rivals are thought not to be too unhappy at the prospect of the two dominant forces quitting the Premiership as it would offer them a more realistic chance of winning the title which would lead to inclusion to the revamped Champions League.

One club source said: “Whether or not the Super League was going to happen, we all feel that the Premier League has to be changed and improved.

“It is time we opened it up to Celtic and Rangers. That would make sense for everyone.”
