Celtic pundit JP Mason has recently given his opinion about the idea of Celtic joining the British Super League.
On the latest episode of the ‘A Celtic State of Mind’ podcast, the panel spoke about numerous issues involving the Hoops, following their 1-1 draw against Aberdeen.
While they did talk about the club’s recent clash, they also discussed the idea of Celtic potentially joining the British Super League. Mason was fuming at the plan, describing it as an act of ripping up the club’s history and credibility.
It has been recently reported that both the Old Firm clubs could look to join a British Super League after the suspension of the European Super League. It was suggested that despite the suspension, Premier League sides are committed to the idea of having a reform.
Is the British Super League a good idea for Celtic?
Mason slammed the idea, making it clear that the concept isn’t for him and he’d be disgusted if it happens.
He said: “I’d be disgusted. I think it’d be the same reaction as you’ve seen down there. It’s ripping up history, it’s ripping up credibility as well. It’s absolutely not for me.”
TIF Thoughts on Celtic to a British Super League…
The idea of the Super League was met by protests by multiple clubs in the Premier League and Man Utd CEO Ed Woodward even announced his resignation. While this shows that the fans were unhappy with the plans, it was reported that even Celtic had made their unhappiness clear.
It is a sign that even the British Super League might not appeal to the Hoops and a report has claimed that Celtic will not progress with the idea of the BSL anyway, along with Rangers. The idea isn’t likely to progress forward, it has been reported (as per Daily Mail).
So Celtic fans shouldn’t be too concerned about it, as the idea may not take concrete shape anytime soon.
