David Longmuir, chief executive of the Scottish Football League
Custom byline text:
A proposal distributed to the Scottish Football League clubs yesterday by David Longmuir, the governing body's chief executive, speculated about dealing with the possibility of Celtic and Rangers competing in England or elsewhere.
The document invited the SFL clubs to consider a 12-12-10-10 format which would include the introduction of Celtic and Rangers reserve teams. Longmuir claimed the Scottish game must protect itself from the economic disadvantages of potentially losing the Old Firm, and argued that introducing "colt" teams would soften the blow.
