I think it would be good for Rangers an Celtic!
But for Scottish football it would be bad..think aboot it 3/4 off Scotz support Rangers or Celtic! It would make no profit and Scottish footy will go oot of buisness!!!!
Rangers an Celtic could do well in the English Leauge!!!

Yes scottish football without the old-firm would immediately shrivel up and die overnight, due to the lack of money which the best fans in the world (tm) regularly throw at other clubs out of the goodness of their hearts. After these clubs have gone bankrupt they other fans would over the weeks ally themselves to an old firm side (making sure to buy every top including the european ones in rangers case, all the video's of when either side scored more than 4 goals against each other and the video's of lubo, amo and god knows how many larsson ones). After doing that an intensive process of learning some bigotted songs and which referee's and sports columnist's to hate is drummed into their minds. Upon completion of the training the new old firm fans will be, to celebrate becoming fans of Scotlands prinicipal footballing exports, a brand new ireland or england top. Now with these new fans brought about due to the demise of scottish football the old firm are ready for an assault on the english league set up (the re-fanification takes place during the close season).

Now upon entering the english first division the old firm are immediately deemed 'far too good for the first division' and after the 4th game of the season are moved into the premier division taking the places of whomever has lost their first 4 games. the old firm are given a headstart of 50 points over the rest of the league due to them being 'so good' and to apologise for the insult of making them play 4 games in the first division. Both teams immediely become media darlings of the english game with their loyal and fantastically colourful support. As such 95% of article's in the english footballing press are devoted to the old firm. Whislt this is happening the fans are going through an adapting process (ie working out which referee's and reporters are tims and huns) but still maintaing their loyal support (ie buying t-shirts and larsson vids). Eventually at the end of the season both celtic and rangers are in the top spot with exactly the same number of points, goals etc etc. the trophy is therefore split in half to celebrate the coming of these demi-gods of football to the epl.

Over the first epl close season with their new found tv wealth and attractive football league to play in, rangers sign figo, zidanne and a few other injured players. Celtic sign rivaldo (who claims its the only club he ever wanted to play for), ronaldo and half of livingstons (now unemplyoed) squad. The next season starts and continues as it has been going with celtic and rangers creaming everyone and drawing with themselves. In the champions league both win their groups and cream all other opposition before meeting in the european cup final which rangers win 2 nil but the match has its controversial moments with ranger's second goal coming from a posibly offside position and celtic denied a possible penalty despite having done nothing throughout the game to merit a win. So the rangers team celebrates (but not by touring the town in an open topped bus with the trophy as that would be insane, no they release a video and a commemerative strip signed by fifa world player of the tear and captain barry fergusson (in crayon *natch*)). Celtic fans meanwhile retire to a pub to drown their sorrows and become physically incapable of discussing the match without all their sentences containing the words "that referee" or "1967". Again both teams win the league.

A few years on and both celtic and rangers are dominating the epl, europe and the fifa world team thing (and recieving 95% of all broadcast rights) both complain the epl is holding them back and as such leave to join the italian league (upon which the epl shrivels up and dies, like the spl but on a larger scale). 3 years later they become too good for this and form their own two team called 'the super old firm league' tm (again with the italian league set up imploding). Eventually they become too good for this league and stop playing football altogether, preferring to exist in a nirvana-like state consisting mainly of special edition strips and larsson video's.

That was quite simply the funniest football related thing I have ever read:howler: :dielaugh: :D

And how true it all is :tongue:

Well done Gildea!!!

As for the actual question? Well Scottish football would cheer as the league would actually become open for the first time in about 100 years. The TV money could be split fairer (instead of the 40% to Rangers/40% to Celtic/20% to the other 10 teams:D) & Scottish football on a whole would gradually increase in quality.

As for the Old Firm in England? I can never see them becoming bigger than Newcastle & Chelsea, not that I really care how badly they do.
