I hope neither of them are ever let into the Premier league, because they'll bring their sectarianism down here and everyone will join in with it.
I've always found it hilarious how a good number of Scots don't want to be a part of the UK, yet they'll happily join our league. Double standards much?

It would set such a dangerous precedent as well. Sporting, Porto and Benfica would want to join La Liga, Ajax and Basel would want to join the Bundesliga, Kiev and Shakhtar the Russian league... you get the point.

I have no truck with Irish Nationalism etc, but I have to say - there is no Rangers anymore. Celtic might have done their fair share of bad stuff, but compared to Rangers/Sevco, they are amateurs.
You're an idiot

Then again, I'd rather support a team that wasn't affiliated with the cover up of years of child abuse - I'm weird that way.

If you were right, and there was no 'Rangers' anymore, surely it was better for them to have died with their history, than to live with Celtic's?

Very few Rangers fans want to leave the UK and there is no chance of the Old Firm joining the Premier League.

Why do Swansea and Cardiff not set a dangerous precedent? I suspect you are talking nonsense.

Soft spot for Celtic because Stiliyan Petrov played for them.
Villa fan I take it? Rangers gave you the blue in your strip.

Haha, can't say I've been in that thread. I lived in Birmingham when I was very young and apparently Villa was the first team I supported.

How so? Wales did not have a professional league until 1992, the two clubs you mention had been playing their trade in the English footballing pyramid for the majority of the 20th century. A completely different situation from two teams wanting to leave a long established league due to lack of competition.

Not that it will ever happen, but Rangers and Celtic joining the English league would be in no way similar to Basel or Ajax joining the Bundesliga. Or any of the other examples you gave.

AZ and Twente have won the Eredivisie in the last 5 years and Basel have only been dominant in the last 10 years. The Portuguese league is ranked 5th in Europe, the Dutch league 8th and the Ukranian league 9th. They all benefit from at least 2 Champions' League places and the teams you mentioned would probably prefer to stay where they are than move to a more competitive league.

Have any of these moves been suggested before? I've certainly never heard anything. The only similar thing I can think of was the possible formation of an Atlantic League.

The English league already has two Welsh teams in the Premier League, while Berwick Rangers play in the Scottish league system. Rangers and Celtic moving to the English leagues (they would never be granted direct entry to the Premier League) would not come close to setting a precedent for teams in other European leagues.

Anyway, all this is completely irrelevant, as Rangers will not be able to compete with Celtic for quite some time.

Flame me if you will, but Celtic is the bigger club. European Cup is the decider IMO. And before Rangers get back in the SPL, Celtic may break their world record national leagues record (though I think Linfield did, can't remember).

Scottish independence would kill this. Monaco is an exception, but then Monaco is just a city-state, it can't have its own league.

Celtic for the Irish connection, but I don't much care for Scottish football.
