Celtic and Rangers B Teams in League Two?

So what is the consistency of selection like amongst the B teams so far? One of the main gripes was strong selections one week, weaker selections the next, particularly around international breaks. Is the 7 Scots rule being adhered to?

The future of the national team is in disarray, if the grand B team plan is the answer.

Hearts drawing with Cowden and Rangers 2-0 down and scraping a victory against Cowden, a team of kids thrown together with as much money as a boy with a paper round doesn’t bode too well.

I haven’t had the time to analyse but seems that your better facing Hearts on a Saturday as Connor Smith and maybe a couples of others are used as bench warmers for the first team then given a LL outing midweek.

Rangers B games this season
Cowdenbeath
3 changes v EK
3 changes v Cumbernaiuld
2 changes v Spartan
2 changes v Cowdenbeath
20 players used

Celtic and Hearts don't seem to list line ups on their website unless I'm mistaken

18 players have started LL games for Hearts B thus far.  Only one player is currently deemed a non-Scot (Mackenzie Kirk - Northern Ireland U19s), although I'm sure that he is still qualified to play for Scotland, by residence, although he may want to follow in his dad's footsteps (Andy Kirk).

Hearts have also stuck to an U20 line-up, with the exception of an U21 keeper (Harry Stone) and one outfield player (only one of Connor Smith, Scott McGill and Euan Henderson has played in any game). 

You can get the Hearts line ups from the B Team's twitter account. https://twitter.com/heartsbteam

tbh I don't have much of a problem with them moving it, as it's a bit silly for it to be scheduled on the same date as the OF game, and clubs can surely move them if both agree (see clubs in the WOS moving to Friday night). Though if it's against the rules then they should really be enforced...

Exactly.

What a bunch of absolute mugs the lickspittle clubs are. 🤣

Or just maybe somebody engaged their brain and thought mm ,  Old Firm game at 12.30, might not be best idea to gather their supporters again at 3 . If that needs explanation,  heaven help us.

Agree original scheduling not a good idea in first place.

Third OF B fixture moved off the original date the week of the game.

Intend to play during the winter shutdown apparently so they get a good crowd.

Pays the 40k bribe to the LL then !

When they play it is another issue, not playing it right after an OF game surely common sense.  Can just imagine any spill over from game at 12.30 would be jumped on, rightly so.

The fixtures have been out for ages though, why leave it so late and still not have a new date for it? The B teams are a shambles of an afterthought and show disrespect to the league.

Despite the original fixture list plenty of games have been moved off times and dates.

These are games that have been moved off days, often left off the calendar with no date rescheduled, and of course change grounds. Announcements of the games being postponed happening the week of the game.

It's the pretence of it that annoys people more than anything.
