Strachan predicts Old Firm breakaway

Scotland manager Gordon Strachan is predicting that Old Firm pair Rangers and Celtic will be involved in a European super league in ten years' time.

• North of the Border

Rangers and Celtic have both been linked with a move south of the border with a view to playing in the Premier League, but Strachan does not envisage this will happen.

Instead, Strachan predicts that a much-talked-about European super league, with two divisions, will be formed, and that the Old Firm sides will be part of that movement.

Speaking at the Soccerex conference in Manchester, he said in the Telegraph: "I don't think they will move to the English Premier League. I think there will be two European leagues in ten years' time or so and then Celtic and Rangers will be in it. That's the way I think it will go.

"It's not the SFA's opinion, it's my opinion - I think 38 (European) clubs will break away and make two divisions and the owners will do everything they can to get the sponsorship and TV money there.

"That's the way I think Celtic and Rangers will eventually go, and we have to make sure Scottish football is in a healthy position before we get to that point."
