Spurs boss Redknapp backs Old Firm for England

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has backed the push for Celtic and Rangers to move to England.

Everton's David Moyes and Aston Villa's Martin O'Neill last week endorsed Bolton chairman Phil Gartside's plan for Celtic and Rangers to be included in a new two-tier top flight.

He told the Daily Record: "Absolutely, I would welcome Celtic and Rangers to English football if they wanted to play down here. No doubt about it. I'm sure they would be good for the English game.

"We are talking about two huge football clubs and if they were to join our league you would be looking at great games in great stadiums. I was up in Scotland only a couple of months ago to watch Celtic play Arsenal in the Champions League qualifiers and the atmosphere was out of this world.

"It was incredible and I'd love to see games like that on a more regular basis.

"The one worry I would have is what happens to the rest of Scottish football if the two of them are allowed to leave but only the people up there know the answer to that. If you're asking me if it would be good for the English game then the answer is yes."
