SPL have no problems in facing rejection from EPL

The Scottish Premier League are unconcerned that Rangers and Celtic have been rejected by the Premier League. The Old Firm giants had been hoping to win support for a proposal which would see them join the English top flight.

That news comes as a blow to Rangers and Celtic, who are keen to compete on a grander stage, but the SPL have welcomed the fact that their 'massive assets' are staying put.

"Rangers and Celtic are massive assets to the SPL and a vital part of the Scottish footballing landscape," said an SPL spokesman.

"Both clubs will continue to make an important contribution to the development of our league.

"We have a new chairman and a new chief executive in position, and with that there is a fresh impetus to build upon the work that has already been done in the SPL to reinvigorate Scottish football."
