David Moyes says Celtic and Rangers would enhance English football

West Ham United boss David Moyes feels Celtic and Rangers would “enhance” English football if they were invited to move south.

The collapse of the breakaway European Super League has led to reports of a kind of British equivalent, with the Premiership giants invited to join the English setup.

Any plan for Rangers and Celtic to move would require UEFA to relax its rules over cross-border leagues, something that the Super League project surely makes more difficult.

But the West Ham boss believes if a way can be found it would benefit the game in England.

Moyes said: “I think the Premier League is a brilliant product, I really do, but you hear the top clubs talking about too many games, so could we have Premier League 1 and Premier League 2?

“Could we have a situation where we do invite Rangers and Celtic to Premier League 2? Why can we not unite the UK? Why do we have to be England and Scotland and not unite it?

“Why can it not be a pyramid that allows teams in the Scottish leagues to get into Premier League 2?

“In fact, I think actually more money would filter down if Rangers and Celtic could be given an opportunity to come in. Why can we not unite the UK?

“We are in Brexit now, we have our country, so why not? Rangers and Celtic would only enhance what is happening in England.”
