  Why not in Scotland? Probably not in the Lowland League, I'd agree - they should be in Tier 2 or 3.

What a shame that will never happen.

The answer is no one knows but B Team will ensure they play in their own environment train with the first team and Rangers will set a style of play which they will get used too which will ensure their development is much better and allows more time to adapt. Being dismissive of "Student Teams" is pathetic 

Playing in reserve teams allows them to play in their own environment and train with the first team. They can do all that without giving the richest clubs even more of an advantage.

The SPFL really need to get their fingers out of their posteriors and get some sort of meaningful reserve set up in place. Alternatively the SFA could get CAS to function properly.

You have just ignored all my factual points and just expressed your opinion.

You raised absolutely 0 factual points so there was nothing to ignore.

Explain, how you think they've been a failure.and how they've devalued the league.

They do absolutely nothing for development and none of the promises before this started materialised (like increased exposure & the promises for attendances). Yet they make a mockery of the league and absolutely make a mockery of the pyramid.

That's not what was asked!!!

it must be successful for them in their opinion. which is the one that counts, or they wouldn't have asked for another season.now hearts seem intereste.so there must be something thier getting out of it.

No that doesn't count, not one fucking bit. Both of them can f**k off.

But it doesn't give them competitive games as the result does not matter and it doesn't help at all.

What they are playing isn't competitive either. Whether they win or lose makes no difference to them in a league they can't be promoted or relegated from. If they want competitive games they can go on loan.

I wouldn't say Rangers or Celtic Colts hammering Gretna, Edinburgh Uni 9-0 etc. is very competitive.

The Old Firm being permitted to buy a place half way up the pyramid and it being applauded on here, by some, is just an example of what is wrong in Scottish football. They already have a huge advantage over all the other clubs.

From the guest club criteria any mention of the players being under a certain age has been omitted so we can drop the pretence that has anything to do with youth development.

Why would results not matter in a reserve league?

Because it means nothing to Scottish Football. Celtic being 8th in the reserve league means nothing

And Celtic B being 8th in the Lowland League means Scottish football has sold out its integrity. I think I'll take them being 8th in the reserve league, thanks.

Celtic being first in the premiership doesn’t mean very much either given the huge advantages they have over the other teams

Since B teams are literally removed from the league table at the end of the season, they actually finish nowhere.

It is all so deeply, deeply pointless and anti-competitive.

The Colts know they cannot win the league as it would almost certainly result in a legal challenge re the term Champions in the LL rules so they have to lose an appropriate number of games which renders the competition corrupt. 
The SFA and SPFL are complicit as they have accepted this despite allegedly promoting a Scottish pyramid system. They will be quite happy to read fans arguing on here because it draws the fire away from them as they do all they can to assist Rangers and Celtic.

The LL are not even trying to hide behind the “benefit to Scottish Football” rubbish anymore by scrapping the age restriction.

While I am all for constructive debate, and don’t necessarily agree with the B teams, this is a nonsense post. The rules were amended to incorporate the B teams from what I have read, suggesting that teams “have to lose games” is ridiculous.
