Pot Of Gold

Further evidence as to the size of the financial pot of gold which will be on offer to the Old Firm if they are allowed to move south was brought into sharp focus by the major study carried out by accountancy firm Deloitte and Touche.

The detailed report casts an analytical eye over European football finance and concludes that in monetary terms Celtic and Rangers would survive comfortably in the English Premiership, although up until now the chances of them being allowed in have been slim.
Carried out by 19 specialist consultants, it makes it clear that both clubs would fit in easily with the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal and be just as a big a draw to television viewers.

"With Celtic having a turn-over of 57m and Rangers' turnover being 45m then both would sit comfortably in the English Premier league," the report states. "They would dwarf anything in the football league first division where the largest income was 28m at Manchester City, but they are now a premiership club."
The report makes it clear if the Old Firm were to join the English Premiership they would expect to see a significant boost in income, particularly through broadcasting deals where they each would be at least 10m better off every year.

"Both would compete comfortably with the big seven premiership clubs for audience share," states the report. "With the knock-on benefits to merchandising and other commercial income from competing in the premiership both could expect to challenge the big clubs financially off the pitch as well as on the pitch."

The question is.... Will it ever happen and would it be in Scotland's interest for it to happen?
