The Premier League clubs known as the “Big Six” have left the European Super League project, but are said to be planning to launch a British Super League, which would also include Celtic and Rangers.
Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City and Manchester United had initially agreed to work with other elite clubs in creating a new European Championship, but withdrew from the project following reactions from fans, players, the government and UEFA.
However, according to The Sun, the “Big Six” of the Premier League has already discussed the possibility of creating a new British Super League where the two Glasgow giants will be invited to join them.
As the British newspaper reported, Celtic and Rangers would be willing to be part of the project which could financially increase both clubs.

Meanwhile, both the English and Scottish Federations, together with the UK government, UEFA and FIFA, have supported the new format.
The inclusion of Celtic and Rangers would not be the only innovation that the British Super League would bring, as the number of teams could be reduced to 18 and another idea is to hold a play-off at the end of the season. /Telegraph/
