Everton signing Nikica Jelavic wants to see the Old Firm move to England.

Jelavic fears Rangers and Celtic will become second-class clubs if they remain in Scottish football.

“Rangers and Celtic can’t compete with English clubs financially, so it would be very important to them if they could join the Premier League one day,” said 26-year-old Jelavic. “We are talking about two big, big clubs and it is important for both of them that they are able to generate more money.

“It isn’t just about it being good for Rangers and Celtic. I think it would also be good for the Premier League. They are two clubs that have fans all around the world and so it would be good for both sides.

“Will it happen? Probably not, but this is my opinion.”
