Celtic and Rangers B Teams in League Two?

Is this part of a subtle plan by the Scottish League? "You can have a permanent promotion place when your teams are better than Rangers Reserves."

The Scottish League weren't the ones who voted them in - in fact the idea was so unpopular with them that it wasn't even taken to a vote.

Would be some laugh putting Man City 'Colts' in the Premiership and watching them outspend the Old Firm to claim the title tbf.

That's certainly an alternative interpretation of "South of Scotland League".

Visions of Newcastle's Saudi owners buying Blue Star, moving them to the East of Scotland league, and watching the best young players in South America and Africa rolling through the East of Scotland league. "Gonzalez with his 8th goal of the day against Tweedmouth in the big derby match"

And they can actually do that if they wish.

It's the third decade of the 21st Century and still so much antagonism. It's as though some people are living in the past. It's really sad that there's so much hate still left in the system.

Time to heal old wounds not rub them with grit to keep them going.

The talented young footballers with SPFL clubs deserve to play at as high a level as their capabilities can achieve.

Those that have played so far this season in the Lowland League are not exactly being hammered. Neither have they gone round kicking their opponents in the air or causing mass outbreaks of vandalism and fighting at Lowland League grounds. They have, in fact, brought fans to games as most expected them to.

There are 3 basic complaints around 'B' teams of professional sides operating within the pyramid.

  1. They're trying to get parachuted in ahead of other clubs. Which is exactly what's happened with this one year trial and has seen both clubs try to politick their way into the SPFL once more.
  2. They won't bring the level of support that they claim. Which is exactly what's happened. They've brought 100s (low end) not 1,000s some were delusional enough to believe. And its little different than what a Talbot, Linlithgow, Pollok, Clydebank, Irvine Meadow and the like could add.
  3. They still won't promote from within. Charlie McCann, Juan Alegria, Bosun Lawal, and other teens shipped in from outside Scotland already on the books say hello. If they can't use their own youth prospects to compete in the Lowland League, it's only going to get worse the higher they go.

If they were that talented they'd be playing in the SPFL. Like a number of Celtic & Rangers players that would be eligible for the LL 'B' team but aren't playing in it.

And if they were really talented they wouldn't be playing in the SPFL. They'd be off elsewhere.

No interest in the O.F , the entire spfl reserve/academy thing is a shambles. As far as I know, reserve teams aren't allowed in the spfl (maybe wrong) If the big boys won't play youngsters in the 1st team, then let them prosper somewhere else. Are the OF going to be in the Lowland again next season ?

If they want to play at the highest level they should start at the the very bottom and work their way up.

Like any new team joining a league.

This. If anything, the shambles this season show that they don't add anything. Bin them for next season and don't ever let them come back.
