Just imagine how powerful Liverpool could become if they had a B team playing the likes of us lot instead of stupidly loaning them out to fellow league clubs.

Aye they may have hit double figures if some of the players had learnt their trade in the lowland league 😀

Given the performance of Celtic, Rangers and Now Hearts in Europe then it’s obvious that the experiment of their B Teams in the Lowland League has been an abject failure.

From next season, they should be installed into the SPFL Championship so they get an appropriate level of competition.

The Lowland League have done their bit to try and improve Scottish players and now time for the SPFL and SFA to do theirs.

The first teams or the B teams?

Sarcasm doesn't work well in print.

What sort of away following have Rangers and Celtic B taken this season? Just for a rough idea. I'd imagine it being more local observers coming along than dedicated followers at that level?
They don't even have a home following. It's considerably worse if the senior side are playing at home as well.

Bigger chance he’s released at end of contract, comes back home, plays about 10 minutes in league 2 and never seen again.

The handful of B teams games he played was truly fundamental to his career. It told him to GTF out of Scottish football :)

Hi all,

Hoping someone can help shed some light on the Lowland League for me. I have been following for a while but still can’t get my head around how it all works (apologies if this has been covered elsewhere I am sure it probably has, I just didn’t know where!) 

 

- My understanding is that Celtic, rangers and hearts teams can’t get promoted or relegated.  What happens if in a hypothetical situation the those 3 teams finished top 3, would it then be the team who finishes 4 who is deemed the champions and would go into a playoff with the highland league winner? 
 

- Secondly, if my above assumption is correct…what happens to the points teams accumulate/lose against these 3 teams throughout the season? Do they count towards the overall final league position? I realise this is probably a stupid question but just trying to make sure I fully understand it! 😄

 

thanks

Your understanding is correct.  It’s the highest place proper club that is declared champions.  The final league table counts all points, including against B teams.  So a team can win the league cos they played a B team who had taken their best players out the side when their nearest rivals had to play them at full strength.

Thanks for confirming! Yeah seems completely unfair in regards to what players the old firm choose to play.  Hopefully they find a better solution as it’s the rest of the Lowland League who suffer!

They got voted in so a lot of the League can't complain about any suffering.

There hasn’t been an old firm for 10 years or so now.
