Rangers leading ambitious push for European league - report

Rangers are reportedly spearheading plans to create a European youth league aimed at helping clubs produce the best young players they can.
According to the Daily Mail, preliminary talks have been held over the plans, which will include teams from Belgium, Austria, Switzerland and Denmark in the ambitious idea.

After the re-introduction of a Reserve League last summer, clubs have been concerned with how little it does to prepare young players for the rigours of first-team football with a number of clubs expected to quit the league this summer.
Graeme Murty’s side could lift the Reserve League title with a win against Falkirk on Monday but could be the Gers’ last domestic game at that level for the foreseeable future.

According to the report, the Gers youngsters could be pitting their wits against the likes of Anderlecht, RB Salzburg, FC Basel or Copenhagen from 2020/21 with the cross-European league aiming to get a TV deal and commercial sponsorship.

It appears likely that Rangers will spend next season utilising a similar ‘Games Programme’ to the one which was a great success last season and saw a young Gers side face the cream of European youth sides.

As Colt teams in the senior league set-up look to be a non-starter, for the time being, a European league might just well be the answer for Rangers.
