'Rangers Would Definitely Survive But Celtic Would Get Relegated' If British Super League Happened
| Last updated
That's the view of former Spurs midfielder Jamie O'Hara after reports surfaced saying that talks are underway for the Old Firm to help form a British Super League.
Unlike the controversial European Super League, it's said the idea of Celtic and Rangers crossing over would likely get the seal of approval from all parties - including FIFA, UEFA and the UK government.
How Glasgow's big guns would get on in the English top flight has long been a major discussion point for football fans and O'Hara offered his take on proceedings this morning.
Although he has doubts about Celtic at this very moment, he feels the two clubs could slot in nicely if given time.
"I think Rangers would stay up," he said on talkSPORT.
"If you put them in the Premier League now, I think Rangers would stay up. With Steven Gerrard in charge, I think they've had a great season.
"I think Celtic would probably go down. I'd put them up for relegation. But if you gave them a transfer window and a season to really bed in, I think then they would compete for the top six because they're huge football clubs.
"They'd need a couple of seasons to really find their feet. If Rangers come into the Premier League with Steven Gerrard as manager, you're telling me he's not going to attract some of the best players in the world? Of course he would.
"I think we should definitely try and get them."
Rangers and Celtic have completely dominated Scottish football, with Aberdeen in 1984/85 the last team to win the league in Scotland.
In 2019, Celtic long-time skipper Scott Brown told SPORbible the Bhoys' supporters would "take over" if they joined the Premier League.
"I think our fans would take over," Brown said.
"Our fan support all over the world is huge and I think that's definitely one thing we would thrive off. They show their love to every single player that comes on the park and that's what makes them very, very special.
"You never get bored of doing that walk-out when they're all cheering and singing, especially on Champions League nights.
"I think the lads would do great as well - we've competed in the Champions League against top teams like Man City and it was a draw at both places. It shows you we can compete."
