Celtic and Rangers

Do you think Celtic and Rangers should play in English Premier League . They crushed all teams in Scotland but they don't win to much in Europe . Last weekend Celtic won 7:0 at home , Rangers won 3:0 away and they have massive advantage in league table .

1.Rangers 35
2. Celtic 34
3. Hearts 20

This year Celtic lost to Basel in 3 round of CL , Rangers lost to Viktoria Zizkov ( Czech Republic) in the first round in UEFA Cup .
I think they should play in England because others teams from Scottish premier division will play in English second or third division and it's not good for Celtic and Rangers to play in so weak league .

they aren't good enough to play in England

And if they did they won't qualify for Europe.
Plus non of the teams that play in England apart from the really big clubs want to see them in England, so they won't be voted in.

Small clubs aren't going to say yes , that will mean their place going to them.
they would have to start right at the bottom and take them about 10 years to make the Premier League.

I also think they will not qualify for European Cups if they play in England .

I dont think they should either but its obvious that they are too good for the SPL.And it wouldnt be fair on other clubs who's places are taken,but then again what about Cardiff?How long have they been in the English league for?

i think they should. the other teams in the SPL are not competitive enough. if they play in the premier league, i think they'll be able to manage mid-table results

no i don't think so, spl needs them for the money etc, without them scottish football would die...........just mho though ;)

but celtics and rangers won't care whether the spl loses money, just as long as they make loads! and they can also bring in cash for the epl, so both sides of the party will be happy (but not, of course, the spl). ;)
