    Default Theoretical Football Question

    Watching the two Scottish games today that involved Celtic and Rangers my question is, if Celtic and Rangers were accepted into the premier league would they last more than one season before being relegated?

    ps this is a purely footballing question and not intended to upset our cousins north of Hadrian's Wall.

    Hard one CG. Personally i think they would be able to attract much better players than they are able to do now so in that case would probably survive.

    They would be perennial mid table finishers imo.

    I think mid table would be a struggle for them as their squads stand at the moment.

    Lower mid table then. They would stay up.

    Most players in the prime wont go to play in Scotland because of the lack of good teams there. I remember a French player (cant think of his name) turning down Rangers saying i would only play in 4 decent games a season against Celtic.

    Would have to agree with Rayden, they would struggle because they would have to go out and graft each week.

    Don't forget though, that they'd both have an awful lot more money available to them than they have currently in the SPL. But yeah, doubt they'd be much of a challenge, certainly not for the first year or so.

    give them the same access to the money that clubs in the premiership earn and they would become a force, i have no doubt. but if they had to play a season with the squad they have now, probably hang on....just. first thing they need is a new manager
    see you next tuesday

    They would probably both have a really good home record but I could not see them challenging for any European places or anything imo.
