Just 48 hours after criticising Celtic’s response to the Nimmo Smith enquiry Charles Green is back to lumping Celtic in with his get-rich-quick schemes for Sevco.
Having been snubbed by adidas for a kit deal and agreeing a 12 month shirt sponsorship deal for an undisclosed sum with Blackthorn Cider the Yorkshireman is poised to save Scottish football by taking his club AND Celtic to England.
After unaudited accounts revealed that debt free Sevco are losing £1m a month Green turned to his pet broadcaster to predict yet another exit from Scottish football.
“I’m convinced that Rangers and Celtic will not be playing in Scotland in five years because I think Rangers and Celtic are too big to remain there,” Green told unquestioning STV. “I think there will be cross-border leagues.
“I think if you’ve seen the press today there are a number of comments from the [IFAB] meeting in Edinburgh where they are already looking at sanctioning a Ukraine and Russia cross-border league.
“This concept that you can’t have cross border leagues is now a myth. There will be cross-border leagues within the next two or three years and I think Scottish football, forget what’s best for Celtic and Rangers, I think Scottish football will be better off without them.”
While there is broad agreement between clubs in Holland and Belgium and also in Russia and Ukraine there is no natural partner for Scottish clubs.
Earlier this season Green claimed that his club were wanted by The Conference but the subject has never been raised among clubs in the fifth tier of English football.
STV are also reporting that the naming rights for Ibrox have been sold to Sports Direct.
