League Two boss in Rangers and Celtic Colts admission as he pushes for change

Albion Rovers boss Brian Reid thinks there should be reconstruction of the SPFL at the end of this season – whether Rangers and Celtic Colts are involved or not – and freshen up the lower tiers of the league.

Proposals for the Old Firm Colts to join the league are back on the table again and Reid thinks something needs to change with teams typically playing each other four times a season.

Rangers and Celtic are willing to offer as much as £3million to clubs to open the pathway up and Reid believes expanding the leagues would add “value.”

“The way to solve everything would be reconstruction this season,” Reid said [Daily Record].

“Whether the colts are involved or not, it would be something fresh ahead of the new season.

“I’ve always been a fan of only playing teams twice a season, home and away.

I played down in England with Blackburn and Burnley and it was so much better.

“If League One and Two were expanded then it would be more refreshing for everyone.

“There are some ambitious clubs down the pyramids who have spent money and would bring value to the league.”

There have also been suggestions of a ‘League Three’ being added and, with clubs seriously struggling financially, there needs to be something done soon.

While there is almost certainly going to be some very strong opposition to Colts, hopefully, there can be a resolution soon and get things moving.
