Celtic in the EPL - where would they finish?Watch this thread
Given a pre-season and some better signings? Anywhere between West Ham and Aston Villa.
Longer-term, with the right recruitment? Top seven.
They would finish in the bottom 4 but that is only in the short term I mean they are a massive club and if they were in the premier league then presumably they would gain some spending and pulling power. I could see them being a comfortable prem side like stoke with the right investment. However I don't want it to happen I mean first we had the welsh teams and now these what next.
Long term success in football in largely driven by money, which is driven by fanbase and marketability. Celtic have one of the biggest fanbases in the UK (60,000 crowd most weeks, at least until recently) and huge global appeal due to the Irish links, and branding. Historically they are probably the biggest club in the UK behind Man Utd and Liverpool, and their decline during the last 15 years has really been due to the collapse of Scottish football. If you put them in the EPL they would be huge.
Rangers would also do well for similar reasons but they don't have the same global appeal that Celtic do, so they would probably be around the level of Spurs.
