UR 1st Superman - BoxingChaos 
Default Celtic and Rangers to Premier League

i know its been done to death but seriously, they would eventually become a huge force in the league.

ONLY Manchester united, yes Manchester united sell more shirts in europe than celtic and rangers do. thats crazy. with tv money + extra gate revenue celtic would be earning major chedder, as would rangers.

just think of the potential fixtures

celtic vs liverpool
rangers vs arsenal

i hope it happens in my lifetime although i doubt it will ever happen unless they adopt a british pyramid system.

I think they would be average at best. It's far easier to dominate when your opponents are Queen of the South, Aberdeen and Hearts of Midlothian. Hearts-Hibs is a great fixture though.

With the current squads they may be average however when you take into account the fanbase each Club had coupled with the exponential growth in available finance from playing in the Premiership then they would be a lot better than average.

The growth in finance would be relatively minor. Both teams already have an inexplicable worldwide following.

Relatively minor? We currently receive less than £2M from TV rights, the team that gets relegated receives at least 15 times as much. You then have to take into account the extra finance that would be available from banks in light of this increase plus sponsorship would be higher and the potential for external investment would also be raised.

Their European form in recent years has actually been quite good given the financial constraints. That aside, I have already explained why people think they could become a force in the Premiership - more money would be made available to them and that coupled with the fact they are among the top five largest supported Clubs in Britain means they have a good chance of success. We know that being a well supported Club is no guarantee of success however it certainly helps.

maybe but i think with the squads they have now theyll do well to stay in the league the first season maybe after that they will consolidate and become a mid table prem side they will never break into the top 4 and have alot of catching upto do with teams like villa if they want the uefa cup spots....
