Celtic and Rangers could break away from the Scottish Premiership and join a new 'British Super League', according to reports.

The bombshell proposals are apparently being discussed in light of the European Super League collapsing in spectacular style this week.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham all signed up to a new breakaway league on Sunday.

But just 48 hours later, those plans were in tatters after fan backlash saw them withdraw.

However, the Premier League could still be reformed, as The Sun claims discussions are ongoing for both Celtic and Rangers to join the Premier League.

The two Scottish giants have dominated the top tier since the mid-1980s, with the last non-Old Firm title being won by Aberdeen in 1985.

The idea of the two clubs moving to play in English football, as Swansea and Cardiff do from Wales in the Championship, has often been speculated about.

But now, the idea could well become a reality, with Premier League teams apparently discussing the idea for real.

    The Sun claims Celtic and Rangers would both be willing to sign up, and the idea is even being supported by rival teams in Scotland.

    Considering the dominance of the Old Firm clubs, fellow SPL sides would be glad of a chance to actually challenge for the title for once.

    The Sun cites a source who claims the move would make sense for all parties involved.

    The source said: “Whether or not the Super League was going to happen, we all feel that the Premier League has to be changed and improved.

    “It is time we opened it up to Rangers and Celtic. That would make sense for everyone.”
