SFA want domestic game to thrive

The Scottish Football Association are very much focused on improving the domestic game even as talk continues of Rangers and Celtic decamping south of the border to the English Premier League. President Campbell Ogilvie believes it is vitally important for the Old Firm to remain in the SPL.

His strong views come after Gers owner Craig Whyte reopened the issue of the Old Firm moving to England.

But Ogilvie said: "I haven't read the article but the issue does tend to come up every few years.

"What we've got to concentrate on is making the SPL as attractive and financially viable as possible.

"I believe any chairman at any club has to look for the best for his own club.

"The Atlantic League was a model that was put forward some 10 years ago. It didn't progress very far.

"I believe we have to focus on making the Scottish game as attractive as possible, both for the supporters and financially.

"Obviously Rangers and Celtic are an integral part of the game in Scotland and that's the way I would certainly see it going forward."
