Celtic side to continue in Scottish Lowland League after Monday update

Celtic B Team will continue playing in the Scottish Lowland League after an update on Monday evening. The statement on Twitter confirmed that B Teams from Premiership would remain in the SLFL for the 2023/24 season, despite remonstrations from a number of clubs. Celtic, Rangers and Hearts will be able to put out colt sides as they look to offer a first team pathway at their respective clubs.

Celtic are second in the table, two points behind Spartans but having played a game more with Rangers in third. Stephen McManus and Darren O’Dea have worked well bringing the youngster through, giving them an opportunity to play regular football in a decent league while continuing to work at Lennoxtown.

Rocco Vata and Ben Summers were both on the pitch at the weekend in Celtic’s win over Kilmarnock. The pair are highly-rated by Ange Postecoglou and the time spent in the Lowland leagues will have undoubtedly aided their progress. Although, whilst this is a positive update, Celtic should be looking to set up a league that competes with English teams to fend off Premier League teams.

    How would we fend off Premier League teams?

    Surely by putting our players in their shop window, we’re more likely to lose them?
