Sporting Integrity or Financial gain.


Well we are half way through the SPL season and Celtic sit 6 points clear of second and Dundee are 9 points adrift of Ross County. However there is only a 10 point gap between 10th and 2nd. So there is still loads to play for and with Celtic focus being taken by the Champions League there is still a chance for teams to challenge us. I ask was it worth kicking Rangers out at this stage? Despite Scottish media's scare tactics there is no Armageddon or financial meltdown. Do you think the SPL made the correct decision to deny newco rangers entry into the SPL? Or should financial gain be put over the integrity of the Scottish game? Your opinions please

@Italian_celt67 but having Rangers in the SPL this season would have made it the most competitive SPL season in years. But they don't deserve to be in so aren't.

@Italian_celt67 yeah, it is pretty funny watching them lose to Stirling and East Stirling to name a few!

There's been some good Games to watch in the SPL, most of the teams can take points off each other and they've become more competitive, so Celtic being the better team should eventually win the league, but it will be interesting to see who grabs the European places after them. But It was right for Rangers newco to have to start again, it will help the lower divisions and may help all the lower teams both in finances and competitiveness and eventual make a stronger Divisional structure in Scotland.

@AFC_Harry34 i'll admit i do miss old firm games but seeing the Rankers get pumped by Stirling Albion is pretty funny too

I think the SPL has been super this season, but with Rangers in it would have been even better

@KingDaniel now it isnt just gonna be focused on rangers and celtic it could give the other teams an opportunity to catch up, but yeah like @italian_celt67 says if you break rules, and to the extent they did, you should face the consequences regardless of what team you are

@Charlton glad somebody agrees. Arguing with an Arsenal fan saying it was a mistake and the league is over despite the gap at the top only being 6 points in ours and 7 in yours hahaha

They definitely made the right decision, would have been ridiculous if they let rangers in the SPL
