Premiership boss rules out Old Firm move to England

Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore has ruled out a move for the Old Firm to England.

Celtic and Rangers are keen on moving to the Premier League to compete on equal terms with the best clubs around.

Scudamore said on last night’s ESPN programme “Between the Lines”: “I don’t think it’s a serious proposition for a whole number of reasons. Scottish football is Scottish football. For a traditionalist like me, that’s where the Old Firm should play.”

He added: “I see the benefits for Celtic and Rangers if they moved to our Premier League but I don’t think our 20 clubs are going to vote to allow these clubs into our league.”
