Liverpool great Dalglish backing British Super League involving Prem & Celtic, Rangers

Liverpool great Sir Kenny Dalglish reckons Celtic and Rangers would thrive in a British League – and would easily finish in the top half every season.

There are emerging reports of plans being discussed to create a new cross-border competition following the collapse of the breakaway European Super League (ESL) movement.

Writing in his column in the Sunday Post, Dalglish said: “In the days since the ESL collapsed, there has been more talk of new league structures, only this time it's not with any ESL, but a new British league set-up.

“The chat has mentioned there could be a place for Rangers and Celtic in any new structure.

“Now, I have no problem with that because I think the Old Firm would do really well in it.

“Given the same financial resources as many of the other clubs, I believe they'd comfortably be in the top half of any British league every season.

“They both have brilliant fan bases, and they would be successful. But I do think they'd need to compete to get the rewards."
